On differences between playing on the road versus at home:
"We just have to focus on running our offense and controlling the tempo from the start. I think our focus should be to get easy buckets, especially at the start of the game."

On conference play coming up:
"We're more aware of what other teams (in the conference) are doing now than we have been."

On what the South Carolina game means:
"This game will definitely get us ready for the Big 12. With the way that they (South Carolina) play and the way their fans get involved is going to be good preparation for us."

On South Carolina:
"We know that they have really good guard play, they get out and pressure a lot. In order to play well in the conference we have to play under pressure and pay attention to detail and just run our offense."
Bill Self: I�ll eat barbecue anytime. It makes no difference to me who prepares it, I�ll eat it.
