Marquette men’s basketball beat Rutgers 82-65 Wendesday night at the Bradley Center.
Marquette head coach Buzz Williams
“You know we haven’t really been that good when we get out on a fast start, but I think our first five minutes were really good.”
On Jae Crowder:
“Of all the players we have coached here, his efficiency numbers are staggering, better than any player that has played here.”
“We will manage tomorrow like any other day after a game…we aren’t trying to outsmart anyone; we want to win THIS game.”
“I think he is in a really good rhythm. It’s fun to watch seniors at the end of their career. When DJ first got here he would get to a 2 o’clock practice at 1:59, but now he is having a manager pick him up at 12:30.”
Marquette Forward Jae Crowder
On Big East record:
“We know that if we win one more game, we can set a little history this year.”
“Last year we were on the other end of that and winning games straight; that’s pretty tough.”
“We didn’t want to come out like we have been in the past at home; sluggish, but I think we responded well to what we wanted to do early.”
On quick turn around:
“Mentally it has to be all locked in because you’re not going to as much stuff physically.”
How far can this team go:
“The sky is the limit. We can do whatever we want to do.”
Rutgers head coach Mike Rice
“Right now we [Rutgers] have boys and Marquette have men.”
“I don’t know if they trusted the 30 clips of fast breaks of DJO putting his head down and going through four guys..we didn’t slow him down.”
