"In my opinion they may have more quality depth than anyone in the league. That depth is a huge factor for (Georgia Tech) during the course of a game and particularly a factor over a short, three-day tournament like this one. We're going to try to play fast. We're not going to slow it down. Anybody that thinks stamina is a question now doesn't follow college basketball. Timeouts are so long everybody can take naps." -- Roy Williams
