"We really focused on making sure he didn't get off from the 3-point line," guard Sherrod Wright said. "I don't think he made a 3 today. But Ayers came and played well and hit big shots, but we weren't as focused on him as No. 12 [Johnson]."
"Over the last three games, defensively and offensively, I think we've been playing better," Wright said. "The first two or three games we weren't there, but now we're starting to flow."
