"I thought the first 10 minutes of the game were really telling. Carolina ran their stuff well and we did very little to disrupt that. We didn't play hard enough from the beginning of the game, and that's on me. I thought they played very well and Raymond Felton picked a good time to hit his one three-pointer of the game."
On stopping UNC's offense:
"I don't think we ever found the right combination. Our best spurt was at the end of the first half when we were hoping they would miss shot instead of making them miss shots.
On Jamaal Levy:
"He played extremely hard; he always does. He showed great will."
On showing up ready to play:
"We're putting ourselves in a precarious position. I thought the crowd was ready; I thought our students were ready, but we weren't ready."
"They were a really aggressive team; we gave a good fight but they played like on e fo the best teams I've ever played against. I give UNC a lot of credit. They were playing a 1-3-1 zone and it affected our offense. You can't attack the same way you would against a 2-3 one. It definitely changed the tempo of the game."
"We need to break down what we are doing wrong. There is something lacking and we need to hurry up and figure what is and isn't working. We don't have a game until Thursday, so hopefully we can figure out it out by then. We also need more motivation."
On the ACC:
"This is a tough league to play in and there are not teams you can sleep on."
