Raleigh, NC - NC State head coach Sidney Lowe and Wake Forest head coach Skip Prosser talk about Wednesday's 73-66 Wolfpack victory.

NC State head coach Sidney Lowe

“The nice thing about tonight was that two other seniors [Justin Clark and Bryan Nieman] were in the starting lineup. They gave us a huge lift with our energy and defense. They got it in and got it done. Clark showed he was ready to go. When he came out the first time, he sat close by so I would know he wanted to go back in. Tonight was really a tribute to Justin and Bryan because they work their tails off, and having this game go the way it did was perfect.”

“[Ben McCauley] was doubled on the post. I talked to him about clearing his vision and trying to establish a spot on the inside.”

“We went to [Brandon] Costner quite a bit. We wanted to work through him and he carried the load quite a bit.”

“Our bigs were guarding their small guys and three-point shooters, and we were trailing because we’re used to going inside. [Justin] Clark did a good job against [Michael] Drum because he knew he was a good three-point shooter, but he didn’t allow him many open shots.”

“I told them in the huddle that once they [Wake Forest] shoot and if they get the offensive rebound, to run to the three-point line because that’s where they’re going to go.”

“It was a big win for us because it was the final game here for our seniors and our 15th win. It’ll hopefully help us in the postseason.”

Wake Forest head coach Skip Prosser

“When you get behind like we did, you just about have to play a perfect game in order to win on the road, and we didn’t do that. Give NC State credit. I thought they played well.”

On Kyle Visser’s limited playing time

“He’s more sick than anything. I thought about not starting him. He’s had a stomach virus.”

On Brandon Costner’s big night for NC State

“He’s a terrific offensive player. He was better than anyone we had to guard him. But give him credit. He played really well.”
