    • Arizona Coach Lute Olson: This is a team that I don't think has played the best game in it in terms of total output. We're looking forward to going to the Final Four again. We're going to make the most of our opportunity.

    • Providence Coach Pete Gillen: We lost our composure for a while. We got some (three) technicals. Our emotions took over. I thought that was the difference in the game.

    • Arizona Guard Miles Simon: We don't have anything to lose. If we lose on Saturday, our whole team is coming back. Right now, we're just going there to have some fun. All the pressure is on the other teams. They're the No. 1 seeds.

      Arizona Guard Miles Simon: I thought we were in control. We felt very confident.
