"Honestly, it feels spectacular," Rodriguez said. "The team works all year round, and you can see it's starting to pay off. Playing last year as a freshman was hard, but I had the best coach, best point guard (Brazukas) and the best team in general. They made it a whole lot easier than it should be. Playing now, I get how the refs call a game, how I should play and act and how the team should play together. I think each year, I'm getting better with understanding that."
"Our whole team, we can just shoot the lights out," Rodriguez said. "We have so many shooters, and we constantly move the ball around so that it doesn't stay in one person's hands for a long period of time. There's always a person who has the assist, and tonight my teammates did a great job of finding me open."
