Jeremiah Rivers Talks About Matchup With Maryland
Nov. 30, 2009
What do you see from Maryland?
They are a real tough team, real principled. They are well coached, have a great coaching staff and players that are very talented. They know what they are doing out there. They have great leadership in Greivis and Hayes, seniors, running the ball club. So we have our work cut out for us."
Talking about the students coming back from break and playing in front of a sold-out crowd on Tuesday:
"It is going to be exciting, real fun, and I'm looking forward to it. Our fan support has obviously been great since I've been here last year. I am sure the students are going to be jacked up. It's going to be loud and it's going to be fun."
Talking about the challenges of facing an aggressive defense like Maryland's:
"We can't get sped up and make bad decisions. We've been practicing real hard the last two days for everything they are going to throw at us."
What's it like having just two days in between games?
"I like it better than having a week off. I don't like a week off. I like playing back-to-back, just competing and going against other teams as soon as possible. Even in just these two days it's been itching at me to get back out on the court already. Having that week off was real good for our team to develop though. We built on some good things. But having only two days rest is fine with us. We are in great shape, and Coach prepared us for that all year."
Coach Crean also met with the media on Monday and here is the video of what he had to say: Coach Crean Video
