Here is what Bam Adebayo had to say after getting 22 points, 15 rebounds and three blocked shots in Tuesday’s win at Missouri.

On how he played tonight …
“I feel like I played great. We came out with the W so I couldn’t be happier.”
On what made the difference for him …
“Just being in the right position at the right time. That was pretty much it. Working on footwork, getting in front of post players and just coming with energy.”
On whether Cal was telling his teammates to get him the ball …
“Through our offense, you can throw it to me or if you’re open shoot it. So it wasn’t really a big emphasis on getting me the ball. But down the stretch they got me the ball, so we won.”
On whether a play was called to get him the ball when the score was tied 52-52 …
“Some of their big men were in foul trouble and we took control of that and we capitalized.”
On the difference in his rebounding …
“As I said before, just being in the right position. Just holding my man off and getting the rebound.”
On whether they were inspired by Missouri’s energy …
“No, because everywhere we play, home or away, it’s everybody’s Super Bowl. So they’re trying to beat us and we came out slow at first and then we got going and we won.”
On why they started slow …
“It’s a long game. What time did we play? We played at 9 technically, at home (Eastern Time). So it’s a long day. Everybody was just laying around ready for the game. We just came out slow. We got in our groove and we came out with a W.”
On Saturday’s game vs. Florida …
“We’re going to come out with intensity, we’re going to have and we’ll see where this thing goes.”
