Updated: 5:22 p.m.
Here’s my interview with Thomas today.
(How do you feel about winning the POW again?) “I’m happy about it just because we got the two wins. It feels like every time we get two wins I get player of the week. Hopefully we can get a few more sweeps, get the ball rolling, get on a streak and end the season right.”
(Rate your performance last week compared to earlier in the season.) “I feel like I’m playing at a high level, but I feel like I can do so much better. There’s a lot of games where I play well, but there’s an aspect where I don’t do well. The last game I only had one assist and five turnovers. Things like that. There’s always stuff I can work on. I feel like there’s more to show people in these last 5-6 games in the regular season.”

(The first time you dedicated your POW award to Abdul Gaddy. The second time you said Matthew Bryan-Amaning. Anyone this time?)
“Probably to my grandfather (Jimmy). His birthday is the 27th of this month and he passed away on the 16th of this month five years ago.”

(Who was he?)
“He was my dad’s father. He was like a second father to me. He meant the world to me. This month I’ll just remember him and the things he’s done for me. I know he’s watching over me and praying for me. So I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing for him.”

(What’s the mindset of of the team as they prepare for this week’s games in Arizona?)
“I don’t know yet because we’re going to have practice in a little bit and I’ll have a sense later on. I’ll just remind these dudes that this is one of the biggest weeks in the season for us because it’s kind of like the Pac-10 regular-season championship is on the line. So we got to focus on that first one. Try to take care of business down there and then we’ll think about Arizona.”
