    • QUOTES (3)

      • Kentucky Coach Rick Pitino: If this team isn't on the same page offensively and defensively, we could lose to any team at any time. This isn't last year's team. We don't have the players to put it away at any time like we want to.

      • Montana Coach Blaine Taylor: There*s a reason they've won 31 games. It's an awfully good Kentucky team. All you have to say is defending champion and it as a ring to it. Yesterday we said kiddingly that out only advantage was I was a little taller than (Kentucky coach Rick} Pitino. I noticed out there today I wasn't that much taller.

      • Montana Forward Ryan Dick: In warmups I was almost in tears. I was looking around and I couldn't believe the environment. It was the most excited I've ever been for a game.
