 Gary Ballestrini - “At 14-7, we've had a nice turnaround from 4-5. The kids are enjoying the ride. At this point we can't overlook anybody. We might have overlooked St. Bernard and almost got bitten.”
 Gary Ballestrini - “NFA is a very quick team. Instead of trying to make short passes, we did too much dribbling and turned the ball over. I was very happy with our defense, though. We held a good NFA team to 40 points until we ran out of gas late. We're primarily playing six guys, and Browning is just coming back off the flu.”
 Gary Ballestrini - “Tony got on a little roll shooting his threes. He hit three or four in a row. I was not pleased with our defense, though, because St. Bernard, to their credit, hit everything they threw up. We have to play better against Windham. They'll bang us around down low if we don't play solid defense.”
 Gary Ballestrini - “The thing that really upset me is that Sheehan outworked us, especially on the boards. There are more aspects to basketball than scoring. Especially in the state tournament, the things that allow you to advance are playing tough defense and owning the backboards. I didn't see enough white shirts (Fitch) boxing Sheehan out. All the glory goes to the offense, but we have to make a commitment to rebounding and defense. It's hard work. That's why we lost by five instead of winning by 10.”
 Gary Ballestrini - “Matt hustles a lot and is just a great athlete. He doesn't have outstanding basketball skills, but he's a great baseball player and a winner. He knows how to get the job done and gets his share of steals and rebounds.”
