Ralph Sampson on Michigan State's comeback:
"I mean Michigan State is a great team. They've definitely been in that position before and they knew how to come back at us and how try to take advantage of our weaknesses at the time. I think we did a good job of keeping them, holding them back and trying to focus on our game. We ended up making it a close game at the end but they just pulled it out."

On the rest of the season:
"I think for us we just got to stay hungry, carry the momentum we had at the end of this game and carry it to the next game."

Chip Armelin | Shooting Guard

Chip Armelin on his three point attempt late in the game:
"We were running a play for Hoffarber to get a shot but they was guarding him so I was trying to make a play to tie the ball game it but it fell short."

On his confidence when taking the three:
"It was pretty high. I was shooting the pretty well. It just didn't fall in."
