    Quote of the Day:Julius Hodge talking to the N&O about Cameron Bennerman - Cam, when you're hungry, you eat; when you're a frog, you leap; if you're scared, get a dog." Bennerman's reaction?... "He said, 'Man, I'm going to eat, and I'm going to leap,' " Hodge said. "From the opening jump ball, he was out there playing hard. He was a man."

    Quote of the Day Extra:Skip Prosser - "We just had a hard time getting them out of their rhythm. They responded to every challenge."
