Fran McCaffery interview, December 6th, 2012 –

Q. How do you see the point guard match up?
COACH McCAFFERY: He’s played really well, Korie Lucious. I’ve been really impressed with him, shooting it well. Knew he had great speed, could create. Had great speed and quickness and could create. It is going to be clearly an experience situation against a guy that has been around.
I look at it this way. It’s a great challenge for him.

Q. Do they know each other?
COACH McCAFFERY: I am sure he does. Played against each other.

Q. How different of a team is this Iowa State team than teams you have gone up against in the past?
COACH McCAFFERY: This team has a lot of weapons. You know, it’s rare that you find a team with this kind of athletic power that shoots it that well. You just don’t see that combination a lot. So they defend and they rebound and they’ve got quick guys who can drive it. But then they spread you out and make threes.
You have a team that’s leading the country in rebounding, makes 13 threes. It’s averaging right at 10 threes a game. Obviously when you think about your ability to defend a team with that many weapons, it’s very challenging.
