    • QUOTES (2)

      • Temple Coach John Chaney: I don't think I could handle super players. I believe a team is built around elements - like my mother, who didn't think you could make a cake with all flour or all sugar.

        (on his point guard Juan 'Pepe' Sanchez)
        Temple Coach John Chaney: I was apprehensive because of Pepe, who was very sick,. 'Up until warm-up time, I didn't know. He had a light touch of the flu. I can only credit the trainer. Pepe played a tremendous game.

      • Temple Center Marc Jackson: From the early going they weren't doubling me. They were playing me one on one, so I took advantage of that. Later they started flashing a double team, but they were leaving me one on one. So, basically for most of the game they left me one on one.
