Press Conference: UVA basketball’s Malcolm Brogdon

malcolm brogdonUVA junior guard Malcolm Brogdon talks with reporters after the second-ranked Cavs’ 51-41 win over Florida State on Sunday.


On the collision he had with London Perrantes: “London’s man had the ball. He started dribbling toward mine. They were about to hand it off. How we play that is London steps back and I get through [the screen], but it was so jammed I don’t even remember. I just remember hitting heads. I was trying to avoid him and I’m sure he was trying to avoid me, but it was happening too fast.”

On his emotions following the collision: “I felt bad knowing that his nose was broken because I knew he got the worse end of the deal for sure. We will bounce back and recover.”

On getting a hard-fought win: “That is a very talented, well coached Florida State team. They are big, athletic and long. So, it is definitely an accomplishment to beat a team like that with some guys down.”
