Quotes from the UNLV/UCSB game

Here are some quotes from both teams after UCSB's 68-62 win over #22 UNLV.

Orlando Johnson (On the victory)
"This is a huge win. I wanted to get it in there heads. It was going to be a battle. We traveled too far to lose.

Coach Williams (On responding to the big win before)
"We've won at UNLV and at UCLA before. Those are tough venues. The big wins are in league championships and in the postseason. This was a big test for us tonight."

James Nunnally (On why he shoots his free throws from left side of the stripe)
"I went to the left side of the line in junior high school because my coach noticed I was missing them to the right. And I went 31-35 the rest of the season.

Coach Williams (On the UNLV Crowd)
"It's a huge win. This is the Mountain West. They are chanting Big West is Division II. We wanted to prove that we could compete with the #22 team in the nation."

And Bob, you guys did show those Runnin Rebels up.

Go Gauchos!
