Nov. 18, 2009
Bloomington, Indiana - Senior guard Devan Dumes talked about Ole Miss and the team's visit to the O'Reilly Auto Parts Puerto Rico Tipoff in San Juan. The Hoosiers play Ole Miss, Thursday at 5 p.m. on ESPN2.
Talk about the challenge of playing against a veteran team like Ole Miss
"It is exciting. It will be a great test and a chance to see what we are made of.
Their guards are two of the best we have seen, how as a group will IU look to take away their strengths.
We can't gamble on defense and we have to trust each other and help out."
What are the things that make you excited about this IU team?
"We have a lot of upside. We work hard and it's a good group of guys."
How exciting is it for you to have the chance to go to Maui last year and Puerto Rico this year?
"These experiences mean a lot. It is because of basketball that I have had the opportunity and my family has had the opportunity to see places like Hawaii and now Puerto Rico. I didn't have that chance growing up and for all of us and our families this is very special."
How are you feeling right now after missing some time earlier this month?
"It's getting better day-by-day. I'm looking forward to getting out on the floor and getting loose."
