    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • North Carolina Coach Bill Guthridge: I think you have to give Navy credit, they came out with a good game plan. They did a good job executing. We were just able to get our inside game going and that was real important. I was really happy with what we did today. We played with confidence, and that's why I'm really proud.

      • Navy Coach Don DeVoe: They are indeed a most powerful basketball team. You would expect a number one seed to do what they attempted to do all day. You don't expect them to get away from their game plan. They pushed the ball inside as often as they could, they took advantage of their size and experience and their skills.

      • North Carolina Guard/Forward Vince Carter: At first, we were rushing some plays and made some bad passes. We were going for the jugular, so to speak. I think we were a little excited at first, but once we settled down, we were able to make some things happen.
