"He's a cancer survivor himself, and he's lost relatives and close friends, like Jim Valvano, to the disease, so I'm not surprised he's gone at this the way he has. He's the captain of this ship, leading the way for the rest of us." Rick Pitino

"I haven't found positives in any of our films. We have struggled every game we've played this year. We've played against teams that were not as big as us and we let them shoot a high percentage. Our defense has been bad." Rick Pitino

"[They] are going to be great pros. But if they leave this year, they will sit on the bench and never play and never get a great second contract. They stay one more year and they'll play right away and have a great second contract. That's what it's all about in the pros -- getting a great second contract. And if you sit on the bench like Kwame Brown did, you're not going to get it. One more year and these guys will be ready for the next level." Rick Pitino

"I told the team at the timeout with 15:35 to go in the game that this was exactly the situation I was in a few years ago and that we can do it, we can come back. We just have to take smart shots, treat every possession as if the game is on the line and we can win it. I actually did mention that game." Rick Pitino

"I am really not pleased with the improvement that we are making. I think our guys are having a very difficult time putting together 40 minutes of basketball. Yes we are playing a lot of different players. Our fours and fives have to play bigger, they play too small. They have the size to play big, but they don't play big with their intimidation of challenging shots." Rick Pitino

"I think he misses Francisco and Larry O'Bannon and Ellis Myles. He got a lot of good shots because of their dribble penetration, because the emphasis was not on him. ... But the more he goes in to David and Juan, the better shots he'll get. If you work inside to out, you'll get better shots. He has to let the game come to him." Rick Pitino

"Just leaving out the difficulty of winning on the road, it's going to be very difficult for us to sweep the games at home. Notre Dame is a very good team that is snake-bitten. It's unbelievable some of the things that are happening to them. … Marquette played Pittsburgh tough on the road. We played Pittsburgh tough, but that was at home. So it'll be a very difficult haul for us to reach our goals." Rick Pitino
