“We have to try to win as many games as possible,” Napier said. “They’re in first place. It would sit well if we win this game knowing that we can keep moving up in the standing. It’s kind of, I guess, a championship game, in a sense.”
"These last games are our playoffs," junior Niels Giffey said. "That's the way we're preparing for it."
"… If we rebound, we can get out on the break. But if we're not rebounding, it's going to be a tough game for us." Rebound and slow them down Hoyas!
"We definitely see it as a big game. …," Boatright said. "They're ranked top 10. They've been playing very well. And everybody thinks that they're going to make a deep run in the tournament, so we definitely see it as a challenge to prove ourselves, once again." THINK we're going make a deep run in the tourney? Are you kidding me Boatright? At least we have a chance to make a deep run, and just for that the Hoyas will make a deep run for the NCAA Championship!!!
“I love Gampel,” junior Shabazz Napier said. “If I had a chance to pick our home games, they would all be at Gampel. The crowd is right on you. It can be devastating for the other team.” Oh yeah Shabazz, well so was the Carrier Dome 35,000 plus, which is offically closed as far as I'm concerned.
“My wrist still hurts me and bothers me a little bit,” Calhoun said. “But I’m still fighting through it.” Well, Calhoun the Hoyas DEFENSE is a tough task to HANDle soooooo...
Ollie wouldn’t tip his hand as to who’d guard Porter, noting only that it’ll be a "group effort".
“Just like our guards,” he pointed out. “They don’t put one guy on Shabazz or one guy on Ryan (Boatright) … Otto’s gonna be a concentrated effort by all five of our guys in the paint, loading up, making sure he’s not on his sweet spots, distorting his catches, and making sure he sees a lot of UConn players and not getting a lot of easy buckets in transition.” This is why Otto has teammates that can finish the task at hand.
UConn thanks for giving us the heads up! Hey, Hoyanation, it's time to raise uppppppp! Hoyasaxa!
Together, We are Georgetown!
