Ohio State Teleconference

Men's Basketball Quotes From March 15th Teleconference
March 15, 2006
Ohio State Head Coach Thad Matta

On the week of preparation
"We had to take Monday off, NCAA-wise, which we needed. We played three games in three days and they were three battles. Yesterday we got back at it. We'll make some changes to get ready for Davidson, as well as continue to sharpen what we do. We'll go again today with a hard practice and we depart this afternoon. We'll practice tomorrow and get on UD's floor tomorrow afternoon then get ourselves ready to go. We'll do a lot of film work and keep our guys as fresh as we can."

On Davidson
"They're a very good basketball team. They are senior loaded, very experienced, shoot the ball very well from the perimeter and have a big guy inside in Johnson. They're a very good team and well coached. They have good spacing. They do a good job of spacing the floor and making you pay for making mistakes defensively. They're very sound defensively and they don't make a lot of mistakes defensively. They're a position-type oriented team, always seem to be in the right place at the right time and they do a good job getting back in transition. It'll be a challenge."
