    • TRIVIA (4)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Morehead State Coach Donnie Tyndall: While it probably wasn't a perfect game by us offensively, it was a game that reflected the toughness of our team. To out-rebound a team as talented and athletic as Alabama State by 23 rebounds in an NCAA tournament game is unheard of. And, we just made plays that it took to win.

        Morehead State Coach Donnie Tyndall: Louisville is a fantastic team. We saw that when we played them earlier (in November) in the Billy Minardi Classic. They are deep, talented and well-coached. Their press is relentless. We have two days now to get ready to play the top seeded team in all of the tournament. We are extremely excited to be in this position, and I certainly expect us to give strong effort on Friday.

      • Alabama State Coach Lewis Jackson: I was flabbergasted. I was upset. We just made mistake after mistake aft­er mistake. We didn't come out like we wanted to win. We didn't play like we're capable of play­ing. This was our worst game of the season.

      • Alabama State Guard Brandon Brooks: They crashed the boards hard. We just didn't play our game tonight. We came out timid. We should have come out like we wanted to win this game, and we didn't. The better team won.

      • (on their next opponent, Louisville, who beat them by 38 points last November)
        Morehead State Forward Maze Stallworth: I think we'll do a lot better. That game is a big blur to us. A lot of us don't remember that game -- or don't want to remember that game. It's great to play them one more time on a neutral court.

      • Morehead State Center Kenneth Faried: For every fan out there, this is for you."Even for those in the last 25 years when we haven't made it, this one is for them.
