Steve Cleveland, Fresno State Head Coach
"This was a team that beat us by 25 last year. They just drilled us. So I'm pleased with the improvement. We were three to four offensive rounds from winning this game. It was that close."
"I thought our execution was perfect on the last play. We set the screen and Mychal (Ladd) had a good shot."
"We grew tonight. I was pleased with the effort and for us to come back from that Seattle game and play this well was good to see. San Diego State is a very deep team. They are a top 25, top 30 team and I think they have a great chance to win the Mountain West Conference this year."
Greg Smith, Fresno State Center
Steve Fisher, SDSU Head Coach
"The thing he did best was being aggressive and getting the offensive rebounds."
"The press was very effective for us tonight. When you can play 94 feet of the floor and not get fouls I think you should play the press all 40 minutes."
"I believe we only got beat down the floor once for an easy layup."
"I believe DJ (Gay) was the number one guy responsible for causing turnovers with the press tonight."
Billy White, SDSU Forward
"Teams know that if they play man against us, we are too fast and we are going to beat them. We are prepared to see the 2-3 zone."
"We knew it would be a tough game but we buckled down and played as a team and that got us the victory."
