Postgame Comments Following CBI Finals Game 1 Win Over Fresno State from Jimmy Patsos, Greg Manning and Ryan Oliver

Jimmy Patsos

“Tough place to play. They’ve got really good players.”

“I told them they would take a bus back if they didn’t start getting offensive rebounds. We have a gritty bunch.”

“We got a lot of offensive rebounds. I think  both teams are tired this time of year.”

“Ryan Oliver kept us in the game early. Here’s a guy from Los Angeles that I never heard of when I inherited this program and all he’s done is been a great sixth man for us.”

“Emotion at this level is everything. They’re gonna be mad.”

“I played Maurice White and we don’t play him that much. His favorite player is Ray Lewis from the Ravens. That helped us today. That kid Maurice White was ready to battle.”

“I’ll give them the emotional edge cause they’re gonna be angry and now my guys are gonna get 58 million texts, Twitters, Instagrams and everything else telling them how great they are. That’s why I’m here. The Great Reminder.”

“I fully expect Fresno to be ready to go Wednesday. We’ll see what happens.”


Assistant Coach Greg Manning

“At halftime Jimmy got on ‘em pretty good. We said if we are gonna lose this game it’s not gonna be because we were out-toughed. We weren’t gonna let them out-tough us.”

“They are a very talented team but these guys haven’t quit all year. Lavon was big for us in the second half, Brett, Poole and everybody stepped up.”

“Our press won it for us. We trapped them a few times and we scored off of it which was good. I’m just proud of our guys to come into an atmosphere like this. The Mountain West is an unbelievable conference. This is a great team. But, now we gotta go take care of business on our home floor. It’s good to steal one out here.”

“We shared the ball well. They’re a good defensive team for 15 or 20 seconds. We wanted to get deep in the shot clock if we didn’t have anything early and we did that.”

“Everybody shared the ball tonight and Ryan made some big shots for us and that’s why we won tonight. It was a total team effort.”

“This helps a lot. A tough travel day but they’ve gotta do it to. Now they gotta come back to us. We’re playing in the ARC on campus which is great.”


Ryan Oliver

“It was a great atmosphere. It was tough. Their fans rallied behind the team and Fresno State made great runs but we were able to respond.”

“Offensive rebounding, that’s been our key and also sticking together as a team. That’s been our motto all year, ‘Love each other’.”
