    • QUOTES (3)

      • North Carolina Coach Dean Smith: Isn't that great about athletics? I'm just extremely impressed. Thank heavens we played our best in the second half or we would not have won.

        North Carolina Coach Dean Smith: We couldn't stop them. We tried everything. They hit against the man. They hit against the zone. They'd look a little bit shaky, and the next thing you know, they hit a three.

      • Fairfield Coach Paul Cormier: I just told my players how proud I am of them. If you have to go out (with a loss), this is the way to do it. The kids weren't intimidated. ... I told my players at half that we were within one shot of one of the greatest upsets in college basketball history. We wanted to shorten the game and charted it in four-minute segments. And we were able to be where we wanted to be until near the end.

      • North Carolina Forward/Center Antawn Jamison: They were like mosquitos out there. Fairfield did one of the awesome jobs of the year. They started on fire. There was just no stopping them.

        North Carolina Forward/Center Antawn Jamison: The first half wasn't typical Carolina basketball. We didn't play any defense, and we got rattled.
