    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • North Carolina Coach Dean Smith: In many ways they were a better team than we were tonight. Sometimes you have to lose. We've won a lot (15) in a row. Maybe we can count this as a loss and do better Sunday.
        North Carolina Coach Dean Smith: I was really disappointed with our zone offense. I'm the coach. It was my fault. ... I did a bad job. That's probably why I'm so disappointed, yet I'm happy for the players.

      • California Guard Randy Duck: You try to win the game and we didn't win. It doesn't feel good. I don't care who we were playing. It's hard. It's real hard.

      • North Carolina Forward/Center Antawn Jamison: I was disappointed in the last two minutes of the first half and the first two minutes of the second half. The frustration was definitely coming up. But that got me going. There was no need to pout. We just needed to go out and turn the game around.
        North Carolina Forward/Center Antawn Jamison: Coming in, the media was talking about their big front line, their tall front line. I've been saying they're big and tall, but it's hard to catch me if you can't find me. In the second half, I just started to run. I guess they're not used to a big guy like myself running circles around them.
