"I don't think it's too hard to buy into, especially when you have (teammates like) Dave who have been through it already," said Aaron Craft, the freshman point guard whose role seems to expand each game. "Obviously, Coach has as well. We have that great leadership, that great steady hand to keep us calm in any situation. We're trying to stay focused, like Dave said, on the long run and not get caught up in where we are right now."
"There was a lot of finger-pointing going around. There was some adversity; we weren't playing as well as we thought we should be," point guard Aaron Craft said. "There were guys just not taking responsibility for their actions, and he tried to kick us out. I think we did a good job of fighting back. Since the last week of the season, it's been a better team mind-set, and we've dealt with adversity a lot better."
