SAN DIEGO - Postgame quotes from the Norfolk State-San Diego State game.
Quoting San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher
ON THE GAME: "We opened the door enough tonight to get a win. Norfolk State made some baskets down the stretch. They are an athletic team and made some plays, many of which we saw in films and had prepared for."
ON SDSU'S DEFENSE: "Tonight was the best we played defensively this season. We made stops when we needed to. I told the team after the game that we were good in this respect."
ON PREPARING FOR OKLAHOMA STATE: "They are by far the best team we have played to date and probably the best we will play all season. I'm interested to see if we can stay with them. They are a legitimate top-25 team in my eyes. We are all excited for the challenge they offer."
Quoting Norfolk State head coach Wil Jones
ON TERRENCE WINSTON "He is our leader. At the end he tried to win the game with a shot. He has a big shot."
ON THE COMEBACK "I never felt like my team should have been behind...They pleased me because they continued to compete."
ON SAN DIEGO STATE "They have a nice ball club. They have nice players in Holcomb and Epps. They made shots when they were open and that impressed me."
