"I think for the most part, we got the shots that we wanted," head coach Brandon Schneider said in a team release. "We are statistically the second-best 3-point shooting team in the league by both makes and percentage. A couple of games ago we set the school record in three-point makes. Tonight, we didn't make them. We went 1-for-20 with our starters in the first half. This a game where you have to make shots."

"Yeah, I'd seen it coming. I actually thought it would have came earlier just by seeing him do it so much, every day at practice. It's just consistency, consistently putting in the work, like getting shots up before every game, things like that. That's just his game. He's getting comfortable with the college game.

Back-to-back[-to-back] games in double figures and that's what we'll expect out of him moving forward."

Texas forward Kevin Durant: No matter where we were playing, my routine at Texas was to get to the gym early and get up extra shots before the game. I liked being the first one on the court, especially on the road. All of the fans would sit there and watch and boo. It happened every game, and it was fun. When we went to Kansas I knew the stands would be packed long before the game started.
