Tulsa Post-Game Quotes vs. Houston
Tulsa Head Coach Doug Wojcik
"That was a really good win for us. Certainly the fact that we kept pace with Southern Miss tonight and Memphis and have eight wins sets up a huge game for us at Southern Miss on Wednesday. I thought it was a great team effort. Give Jordan Clarkson a lot of credit. With the game tied at 30, he gets a bucket and then a steal, gives us a little momentum, the crowd really gets into it, and the kids play great from that point on. I'm really proud of them, especially coming back from a tough loss at UTEP on Wednesday."
On reaching 138 wins:
"It's a little bit of a relief. I think it's been talked about for a while and in some ways, I'm really proud of it, but I want to get it over with and move on and fight for this conference championship. We're right in the thick of things. But it does mean something. The Iba name means a lot to basketball. And, of course, it means a lot to me to have the former players I had, the former managers, the former assistants, I mean, I'm the only one still here after seven years, as far as staff goes, so it's completely turned over. There will be more in time, but it's definitely a nice accomplishment."
On Tulsa's second half:
"You think you're going to have trouble scoring and yet you end up with 72 points. We have scored pretty well. We shot 59% in the second half and then we did a great job from the line. I think we were 17 of 18. On Wednesday, we were 50% from the free throw line. Go figure that."
