"You don't grow when everything is good," fifth-year forward Amile Jefferson said. "That's probably what we thought at the beginning (of the season), that everything was going to be good. You grow through adversity, and that's what we're doing right now. We're growing, we've been through some stuff and now we're getting better, everyone's coming into a role and ... everyone's playing tough."
"I've still got some pain, but it's stuff that I can play through," Jefferson said. "I'm not doing any damage to my foot. Yeah, it hurts - it hurts really bad - but I'm just happy to be out there in any capacity to try to help us win, to try to give us anything I can."
