ICTV: UNC's First Thoughts on Villanova Matchup

HOUSTON --- Minutes after beating Syracuse in the Final Four on Saturday night, the first question asked to the Tar Heel players in the postgame press conference was their take on facing Villanova in the championship game.

"Villanova is a great team. They're coached by a great coach. They do some similar things as we do. Our main goal is to play similar to what we played tonight, get the ball inside, really try to pound it in there and knock down our free throws." -- Kennedy Meeks

"I think they do a great job of taking pride on the defensive end. As you saw tonight, they won by I don't know how much, 44. But I think they did a great job of taking Oklahoma out of what they wanted to do. We just got to be able to move the ball. Do what we always do, get the ball on the inside, play inside-out." -- Joel Berry

"We've got to go out there, play our game. Those guys are a very good team. They're really hot right now. They held one of the best players in the country to little or nothing today. They all play together. They space the floor." -- Brice Johnson
