"I'm not surprised," Paul said on Friday morning. "I knew if we worked hard we were going to get some recognition at some point. For it to come this early, I'm not really that surprised. We go into every game fully expecting to win. We didn't pay attention to the rankings. When it came, it was pretty cool.."

"We haven't done much," Paul said. "It's only 11 games into the season. We have a lot more to prove. We don't want to win our first 11 games and be satisfied."

I like the quotes and mentality, hopefully they back it up with their play.

The team's success is evident in the players better shooting percentage this year. Think back during the summer when each player was shooting thousands of practice shots from every angle of the floor and stats were kept on each shot. Practice does make perfect.
