POSTGAME QUOTES
TCU 88, Texas-Pan American 58
Fort Worth, Texas (Daniel-Meyer Coliseum)
Jan. 11, 2011
Attendance: 3,882

TCU HEAD COACH Jim Christian
On his team’s defensive pressure:
“We scored a lot, and we stay in our (defensive) pressure when we score. We can’t press when we miss shots, so that’s why it seemed like we pressed longer than usual.”

On preparing for Saturday’s start of Mountain West play:
“We’ve been getting ready for conference play. Our seniors know they’ve got a 14-game regular season ahead and it’s going to be big for us. I told them today the way you get ready for Saturday is how you play tonight, by playing possession-by-possession. Everyone has to play hard.”

On Wednesday’s performance:
“If we played like this every game, we’d be pretty good. We forced 16 turnovers in the first half and had 10 steals. We did a lot of good things.”


TCU SENIOR GUARD Hank Thorns
On playing hard for 60 minutes:
“We’re not going to let up at all. We just wanted to come at these guys and make them play the way we want them to [out of control]. We were focused on the game and got the ‘W.’ It was a good birthday present for me.”
