Look at your future, that's what I want him to think.
I feel great right now. I didn't ask if he could play. I was more worried about his future. And they said he's fine.
That was a typical tough game on the road in the Big East. It didn't take South Florida long to figure out how to play like a Big East team. ... That team is going to win some games in this league. They're good.
It's always a constant give and take. We're usually undersized so there's certain things and certain areas sometimes rebounding that we give up. But the game is a constant match, to see how they're matching up.
You have to be careful about that because you don't want to give the guys too much information and lose our aggressiveness.
He's a unique player. I don't remember anybody like him that good defensively and offensively on the perimeter and in the post.
I really feel so good about this season. It's not even not going to the Final Four, we just wanted to keep advancing, keep being together, keep playing together.
Obviously, we always want to have Allan on the floor. But to beat a good team, you've got to be able to recover from that.
Our coaches and our guys have a feel for that team. We know them and that should help us prepare for them. But, on the other hand, they know us too.
(Smith and Dudley) are the kind of guys that when you play against them, it's tough to like them. But when you get to know them, they're great kids. You hate to play against them, though, because they kill you. They beat you up.
You hate playing against them because they kill you. They beat you up.
That was a lot of heart.
That was a lot of heart. He said he felt good, but I knew he'd tell me that.
He's shooting the hell out of it, too.
I'm at Villanova for life now. I'm happy as hell.
We were surprised, to be honest.
I hope so. I don't want to go inside against inside against them. But there's a lot of similarities, too. They're very strong and aggressive defensively. They like to play fast. And so do we.
I hope it comes with an asterisk.
I sure hope so. That's something we're going to need to do.
I hope we're that good. I'd love to be that good. That team had toughness and had great guards. But they were undefeated until the conference tournament.
It's cool. That was an old school, split-the-house type of night. Thank God, (Lowry) plays for us. There have been a lot of great Philadelphia guards to play here. That's just a great thing to hear him compared on this night to some of them.
Old school, split the house... It was cool.
They were on the top of every aspect of their game. We will learn from this. You've got to beat the best team in their own house.
I'd much rather go into this tournament after winning the Big East, but now that we haven't, I think what we will take from that is gaining a little bit of hunger and the understanding that we can get beat by anybody.
What we'll take from that is to regain a little bit of hunger and an understanding that we can get beat anytime by anybody.
