As always, you can find our rough transcript of what the media asked the coach and players below each video.
QUESTIONS TO COACH CAL:
How about the 3 that Wilbekin hit when you guys had cut it to like six?
Cal, I think you said you don’t know when the light will come on, and it might not at the end of the day… [cut off by Cal]
John, it seemed like when you made the run really late in the first half and when you made the run in the second half Julius was really active in getting the ball to the goal… [cut off by Cal]
Cal, you’ve never been a big fan of the conference tournament, but how important is that for this team?
How well, John, does Florida execute? Just put it in perspective as it’s something that hasn’t ever been done in the SEC… How well do they execute and play the game?
QUESTIONS TO JULIUS RANDLE AND DAKARI JOHNSON:
Was the idea on the run, Julius, to go inside to make it happen there?
Julius, Cal usually downplays the important of the SEC tournament. How important is it for you all this year?
What tells you that [referring to Julius saying they still believe and that something has to change] and why are you confident you will?
Julius, how big was the three by Wilbekin when you guys had cut it down to six?
Is he [Wilbekin] the MVP of this game… of this league?
Julius, what were you thinking when they were up 22 right out of the shoot?
What do you think you did better defensively during that run? Because they only scored, you know, four points there for a while.
Dakari, we’ve been talking to Julius a lot, but do you feel the same way as him [about making a run]?
Did you guys ever have a moment in this game where you thought, if Florida wins then they’ll be perfect in the SEC, and you thought that this should have been us?
