On shooting better during the conference season:
"I think a lot of guys are better shooters than we've shown, myself included. I think we've missed a lot of open looks. We're getting wide open looks, but we're just not converting all of them."

On facing Oklahoma State:
"I think because Coach (Bill) Self is from Oklahoma State, his coaching style is similar to (Oklahoma State coach Sean Sutton) because their background is about the same. It makes for a great game; we just have to come out, be more physical and play harder than them."

On facing the Cowboys to open Big 12 play:
"It's the first league game, so we're going to be really pumped up for that. They have a good team - one of the top teams in the country - so we have to go out and handle business."

On if the game would have been later in the year:
"I wish this game would have been a little bit later, just because then we could get a little bit of a feel for the league. But you have to play them as they come."
Bill Self: I�ll eat barbecue anytime. It makes no difference to me who prepares it, I�ll eat it.
