"I'm excited to go to the tournament. That's all that matters."

"I was really excited to get the opportunity to play in the tournament. That was one of our goals this year and we reached that. It didn't really matter who it was."

"I watched them a few times but there wasn't any motive behind that. I just like watching college basketball games."

"Any day of the week... any day of the week."

"That's when you get your biggest rush. I actually thought about the teams this year on the bubble and I was telling somebody I know exactly how they are feeling right now."

"With the exception of the Duke game I think we're playing really well. We're getting better on defense, and I think we're really starting to click."

"It is what it is. With that being said, you still have to play the game."

"Not a whole lot. I know they are really talented. I've seen a few of their games on TV, but I'm not truly familiar with them."

"I think it was very valuable. I remember leaving last year after we lost and I said to to myself that I have to get back here."

"It means a lot. Down the stretch he's been a real big part of our success."

"Lennard does the little things. I don't want to term him this, but he's a glue guy. He does the things you need him to do. He screens, he rebounds, he runs the offense the way you need him to."

"It's a very exciting time, but at the same time it's kind of a rush."

"It's definitely a big rush."

"Last year when we had to do that it was one of the toughest things we had to endure. Because of the time of the game and travel, and then we had to turn around and play again."

"It's been something I've been thinking about here lately. I'm well-aware of it, but once I get on the court I don't really think about it."

"I don't really care who it is."

"Everyone that I played with there is not there anymore, so I don't know any of those guys."
