"We're happy. I tell you what, I did not look forward to our 30,000 neighbors across Western [Boulevard] storming the station or meeting me in the parking lots." - WRAL programming director John Harris speaking about the decision to air the NC State/Wisconsin game from his office at WRAL's studios, across the street from N.C. State's campus.

"I don't think that's a classy move. We're not used to losing. We beat them." - Cameron Bennerman commenting about the UConn's Denham Brown saying the Pack was use to losing

"You know, I don't want this to come out wrong, but I could have gone to a lot of colleges. One of the reasons I chose N.C. State was because they had had some down times and I got this feeling that everyone wanted to come together and make something special happen. So I left Harlem to come here and [Sunday] night made everything right." - Julius Hodge

"Coach handled the criticism better than anyone I ever saw. He's the coach of the year, and to have that scrutiny and criticism come down on him was really hurtful. He's a strong guy, though, and he showed us we could be strong too if we worked hard to get through it." - Julius Hodge
