SAN ANTONIO, Tex. - Will Artino and Austin Chatman discuss the upcoming match up versus Baylor on Saturday afternoon...

Will Artino, C, Jr.

On how big of a stage is this for their program …
"We are trying to play for our first Sweet 16. We have been here the last three years, so we know what to expect and know the pressure of the situation. We are a veteran group, so I think we know how to handle the pressure and we are ready for it."

On how the Providence game prepared Creighton for Baylor
"They threw us off in the first half and Providence and Baylor play similar styles. They like to slow it down and stretch you out with that zone, so obviously we faced it last week and some yesterday and we have been preparing for it all week. I think it helped us in the overall scheme of things.

On how much practice time spent on preparing for this style of play …
"Every day, we have been going against different zones – 2-3, 1-3-1, box and 1, or whatever – we have been going against them, so we are ready."

On the fan support …
"It is awesome. Our fans travel really well. We had a good showing in New York and now here in San Antonio. They have always traveled well. They came in bunches down to San Antonio and we expect a few more to make the trip for tomorrow's game because of what it means for this program. There were a few Nebraska fans cheering for us yesterday that we could tell. We will take all the fans we can get."

Austin Chatman, G, Jr.

On being in this position …
"It feels good. This is a goal we have had all year, so it is very exciting to getting one step closer to that in the tournament. We are excited about the position we are in."

On key to beating Baylor …
"We have to keep them off the glass. They are real athletic and I think they are third in the nation in rebounding. Keeping them off the glass and keeping them from second chance shots will be big. We watched the majority of their game yesterday and keeping them off the glass is going to be key." Recommended Stories
