Hoosier big men battled Purdue's post presence

Sunday, February 17, 2013 - 8:46 am

Indiana forward Christian Watford spoke with the media following the Hoosiers' Big Ten Conference victory over Purdue at Assembly Hall on Saturday.

On guarding Purdue's A.J. Hammons:

“We tried to limit his touches and not let him get deep post-ups. My teammates did a great ob of coming over and helping me if he did have me kind of buried in the post.

On beating Purdue four straight times:

“It means a lot. The first two years were tough, but anytime you can come back and win against your rival, especially the way we've been doing it, feels pretty good.”

Do his fast starts help his game:

“I think so. When I get a great start, I end up playing better the entire game. My teammates did a great job of finding me and I got going early.”
