RALEIGH, N.C. -- Several NC State players met with the media following the Wolfpack's 91-83 win over North Carolina.

T.J. Warren

"We wasn't communicating on D at all, we were letting them get wide open 3's."

"We started off strong. We just need to keep that up the whole game. We got a little winded in the second half and stopped playing D."

"We just wanted to push the medal on them and keep going hard to the rim, finishing all our layups and jumpshots."

"We were out of it in the second half. We were tired."

"To be able to beat Duke and Carolina my first year, it's a good feeling."

Lorenzo Brown

"We work hard every day, and it's paying off."

"Too much momentum for us I guess. We got a little bit over-excited and turned the ball over a little bit."

"We came out with the W. That's all that matters."

"They've got two great shooters in Bullock and Hairston. It's hard to contain those two guys."

"There's never been any pointing fingers on this team. We all love each other to death."

"It's very important. Virginia has been doing pretty well this year. They have a great team."

"It was very big to contain those guys on the fastbreak points. We're pretty used to it because we run the same type of offense."

"They are a good team. You can't take that away from them. Once they start hitting shots it's hard to contain them."

Richard Howell

"We know what we've got to do to not let those type of games happen again."

"We definitely came out and wanted to get the W, but we're not satisfied... we're just anxious to get back and practice."

"We feel like it's a change of history right now. This is a step toward that. It's been one-sided a lot between Duke, UNC, and NC State. I'm glad I'm a part of the change."

"That definitely one of the biggest part of the game, the way Calvin was attacking [McAdoo]."

"They ran a couple of times in a row."

Scott Wood

"We played extremely well, especially on the defensive end and it led to a lot of easy baskets for us." "We have to keep moving on and when we get them down 28 we've got to try and get them down 48."

"We just have to keep getting better and we'll learn from our mistakes."

"I was trying to get it to as many as I could."

"It feels good, but I'm not a stepping stone for anybody, not Duke, not Carolina, none of them. We're going to get better, get the job done, and start to change the culture around here."

"It's not like I just hooked up with Heidi Klum or something."

"They scored a lot of points, but we also scored a lot of points. We've just got to keep playing defense and finish the game out."
