Johnson said they were able to break Ole Miss' zone defense often which lead to some easy scores.

Coach White is here.

Says they preached "Great shots and get a stop" tonight during Ole Miss' 16-2 run early in the first half. Says the Rebels have a couple really active, physical guys. Thought they did a great job responding to UF's 14-4 run to start things.

White says they didn't bring up Breein Tyree's absence in tonight's game so the team wouldn't get ahead of themselves. Says Tyree is a great player and they would've had to play great defense on him.

White praised the way Andrew Nembhard played tonight and managed Ole Miss' zone. Said he controlled their bigs and is as good as there is in ball-screen reads.

Says they thought they did some good things offensively but did get stagnant at times.

White says playing high-level defense is really important every game, but tonights showing makes him feel better about his team following the Missouri game.

Pointed out that practice was much different. Says guys were chomping at the bit and the gym was loud.

Mike White says he's only seen a few Auburn games but knows what they are. Says they have a great backcourt and they have experience, winning experience at that following their Final Four run last year.

White says when he got here he tried to recreated the culture Billy Donovan created before him.

He says his first year, the team should've been much better.

Goes on to talk about the Elite 8 team he had, praised former players, staff, etc.
