"Guys say Julius is 6-7, 205 but did you see Rudy Gay and Ed Nelson go to the floor? Say what you want, but those are two really good players. There's no way I was going to be denied. That's the way NC State has played the last month or so. We haven't been denied and we haven't given up." - Julius Hodge describing his game winning shot

"I'm not saying that the games after this will be easy. Of course, it gets harder as you go along. But mentally, this was the hump we had to get over. Once you get over all the mental stuff, the only thing left to deal with is the physical, and we can handle that." - Cameron Bennerman

"He and I made eye contact and I think we both had the same play in mind." - Herb Sendek and Julius Hodge on the same page

"If you had told me three weeks ago that we were going to lose in the second round of the N.C.A.A. tournament, no matter who we were playing, I wouldn't have believed you." - Connecticut Coach Jim Calhoun
