NCAA Saturday: Freije, Hundley, and Moore

<B>Orlando, FL -- </b>Vanderbilt's Matt Freije, Scott Hundley, and Mario Moore met with the media today and talked about the upcoming game against NC State.

Senior Forward Matt Freije
On opposing defenses the past few games ...
"I guess they're paying more attention to me, but also my shots just haven't been falling lately."

On North Carolina State's offense ...
"They do some similar things (to Vanderbilt). Some things that we don't do often, they do a lot more of. I guess Sunday will be a chess match between the two coaches."

On comparing both team's big men ...
"Their big men are a lot like our big men. They can play the perimeter and play inside. It's going to be whoever plays harder."

On their first tournament game ...
"It's probably the most gratifying thing that's ever happened to me."

On his teammates stepping up ...
"Since the SEC Tournament, we've seen what a team we are. I haven't been scoring a lot, but the other guys stepped it up. I guess you have to pick your poison. You can shut me down, but Mario (Moore) will run around on you like he has."

Senior Guard Scott Hundley
On North Carolina State's Julius Hodge ...
"He likes to drive to the basket and he's real crafty with it. He's obviously an outstanding player."

Sophomore Guard Mario Moore
On their first tournament game ...
"My wait wasn't long, but the gratifying thing for me is seeing these guys (the seniors) accomplish it. Each game could be their last game."
