He's been beat up for the years he's been here.
Behind closed doors, he's an All-American. When he first got here, he tried so hard to just play the right way. Now he's just going out there and trying to play his game.
The good thing is we haven't peaked yet. We haven't touched the surface of what type of team we can be. When our guys realize how good we can be we're going to be tough.
The fouls took me out of it. I had a lot of energy but maybe I was too anxious. I thought our guys played well.
It was like old times. It was like a big weight coming off my shoulders, actually.
Farley can do a lot of things, and every game he gets a little more comfortable. All these injuries have been tough, but you're going to see them as a blessing pretty soon. A lot of guys have had to mature quick, and we just have to get ready to take advantage of it.
I had to miss playing in the (Madison Square) Garden (against St. John's), but this is definitely one I didn't want to miss. I'll have a lot of family and friends there. For guys from Jersey, this is almost like playing in the Garden. You go back to your home state to play, it's a special thing.
That's the road for you. Once you get the crowd going against you everything comes out of joint.
Everything fell into place. This was a confidence-builder, but there is still a sense of urgency. I don't know where we'd be if we had lost this game, but this is my last year and I don't want to play in the NIT. We've got to play like this the rest of the way.
We've just got to learn. That's all we can do.
We keep saying every game is crucial. We've lost some games at home. Losing at home is not an option now.
All I was thinking about was (Kentucky guard) Patrick Sparks. Pump-fake, foul, free throws.
They looked confused. They'd draw up a play, and we'd still come out and keep them out of what they wanted to do.
I'm not thinking about a record. I'm just thinking about winning.
It's not over until the final tick of the clock. Hopefully, the basketball gods will bless us.
