Andrew Harrison, Andrew Wiggins Nike Hoop Fest quotes

Quotes from the Nike Hoop Summit.

Andrew Harrison (Travis H.S./Richmond, Texas)
On the outcome of the game:
It was a disappointing outcome, but it’s still an honor to play for your country, and being known as one of the top players in the country. We all had a good time here. We’ve been playing against each other since we were in third grade, so it was great to play with them. The outcome was disappointing, but we had fun.

On the team’s defense:
We didn’t play as well on defense as we should have, but that comes with practice. We only had two days to prepare. That’s not an excuse. We definitely should have played better defense, but woulda, coulda, shoulda.

On Livio Jean-Charles:
He definitely killed us on the boards. He definitely showed who he was tonight. We struggled with him, but he’s a great player.

Andrew Wiggins (Huntington Prep, W.Va./Canada)
On the outcome of the game:
It was a blessing to be here. Coach enforced rebounding, and that’s what I think was the key to our victory. And also everyone was playing hard, and like coach said, we were unselfish the whole time, so we had great players that made different plays deep in the stretch.

On what it means to get two wins in a row in the Nike Hoop Summit:
It means a lot. First time it’s ever been done. Means even more because I have a Canadian coach that I’ve been with throughout three, four, five years. So it’s a special thing that we both can cherish, and again, blessed opportunity that we’re here and being able to play amongst the best.
