Q: How much pride do you take in being part of a team that's won the SEC regular season two of the last three seasons (2011, 2013)?
A: We've learned a lot. I think that's really going to help us this year, especially because we have had a lot of ups and downs and we're just finding ourselves. I think it's going to help us going into the SEC season.
Q: How different is Southeastern Conference play?
A: It is a lot different. (This is) the last chance to get an SEC championship in the regular season. The last year. We just need to make sure we are ready to go on and get ourselves prepared because we are playing for something.
Q: You said a few weeks ago you felt like you were at about 85 percent coming off offseason knee surgery. Where you do you feel like you're at now?
A: I'm getting to 100 percent. I think I'm feeling better. I've just been working and sticking with what's been working, so I'm really excited for that. We'll see how that goes.
Q: How frustrating has it been this season not to be able to play at 100 percent?
A: It's a little frustrating. I talked to (Florida coach Billy Donovan) a few weeks ago about it and everything. But I mean, there's nothing I can do. I've just got to ... I've got games left. I've got to take it one game at a time, one day at a time and I think I'll be fine.
Q: Do you realize that you only have nine games at home left (including Wednesday night against South Carolina)?
A: I haven't thought about it yet. I look at the schedule here (Monday) and we have 18 more games, something like that. But you think about it, nine more games at home, I don't think about that yet.
