"That was as good a first half of basketball that we've played in a while. I showed our team a little clip of a couple years ago when we played UConn here and tried to get the energy level that you need to play in big games. After Kansas started out really well - they had 11 points quickly - they went a long time without scoring a lot of points." — Spartan coach Tom Izzo
