Allah says in the Qur’an not to despise one another. So the criterion in Islam is not color or social status. It’s who is most righteous.

-Tom Crean

I like our schedule. There’s 17 teams that went to the post-season, and when we looked at it there’s a potential 21 that we could face with the teams in Alaska and the Blue and Gold Classic. Then we open against Connecticut and Cincinnati. I’m jacked up, there’s no question about it.

Dan’s very instinctive, which leads him to making good decisions. He can get into the lane and make some plays, and the other thing about him is his defense.

Our players are building mental toughness. It’s really hard with a young team. It’s very hard to close teams out in a close game. The more that you get experience at it and the more you learn from the experience is when you don’t do it is where it can really help you.

-Tom Crean

He’s missed one free throw in 14 months. We like to have the ball in his hands.

Joe has worked so hard on his shooting, as has Dan, and we feel like it’s going in when they get the ball. We are very confident with those guys on the floor. It makes a lot of difference for us to be able to play five guards and not have any drop-off when you go to the bench.

-Tom Crean

You can’t be too high when you win, you can’t be too low when you lose. You’ve got to move on to the next thing.
