"The effort's always been there," senior guard Jarrod Polson said of his teammate. "Any player in general has slumps and stuff like that. You can't really read too much into it, but all I know is Willie's been doing really well in practice and looks like the old Willie again. That's definitely a good sign for us."
"If we say that down the road, 'We've been to three Final Fours,' I'm not sure how many people will believe us," Polson said. "That's just not that common, even getting to the Final Four one time. It doesn't happen to many people."
