Here’s the quotes of coach Lorenzo Romar following Washington’s 62-47 win over California.

(On the game) “If you go on the road and only shoot 36 percent and win by 15, that means that you did a lot of good things except for making shots. Our guys were very, very active on the boards with 20 offensive rebounds. I thought that Aziz was the catalyst for the night; patrolling the paint and controlling the paint, scoring, rebounding… he did a lot out there. I thought we had another great defensive performance as a team, but also Scott Suggs guarded Allen Crabbe and did a phenomenal job. Their two guards, (Justin) Cobbs and Crabbe combined for 18 points, and that’s how we were able to get the win.”

 (On the defense) “We have our guys now. They’re missing a couple players. They guys that they’re missing don’t score a lot of points but it allows you to restpeople. Last year, we played them without Scott (Suggs) and C.J. (Wilcox). If you don’t have your personnel with us and the way we try to defend, you can’t do that. We’re playing more like the way we want to play defensively. For this year, this effort was right up at the top. We defended for long periods of time. I thought we let up at times as Washington State although overall it was a good defensive performance. I thought tonight that we sustained our defense throughout most of the game. If we didn’t, it would have been a different outcome.”

(On the offensive rebounds) “Our guys were just active tonight. Anytime you get a lot of offensive rebounds, it’s effort. Our guys were relentless and it wasn’t just one guy. CJ Wilcox had five offensive rebounds. It wasn’t just Aziz, it was multiple guys going to the glass.”

(On guarding Allen Crabbe) “I thought it was moving his feet and getting through screens quickly. He was picking good angles so that he could get around the screens. He has the length so that he was able to get up there and contest the shots. But we told our team that it wasn’t just Scott defending him, we had to guard him as a team and the other four guys out there were aware of where he was and they paid close attention.”
