    • (on the relationship between coaches Rick Pitino of Louisville and Steve Masiello of Manhattan. Maisello was Pitino's ball boy in the 1980s when Pitino was coaching the New York Knicks of the NBA, played for him at Kentucky in 1996-97 and was his assistant coach at Louisville from 2005-11.)
      Manhattan Coach Steve Masiello: It's emotional. It's emotional. You look down, and the guy who kind of made you who you are is your enemy for 40 minutes. So it's tough. You know, it's an honor to be on the other sideline, but it's about the kids. It's not about me. My kids played. Their kids played. I think it was two very good basketball teams. But it's tough. It hurts. You know, if I'm going to lose to anyone, I guess lose to him.
      .
      Louisville Coach Rick Pitino: That's why I didn't want to play them, because I'm sick inside losing to one of my players.

    • Manhattan Guard-Forward George Beamon: This loss definitely hurts. At least we lost to a great Louisville team. ... Those guys brought it, but it definitely hurts. Definitely don't want to feel this ever again, and we want to get our younger guys ready so they won't have to feel like this again.

    • Manhattan Coach Steve Masiello: I thought we played well for about 39, 38 minutes. That's what happens when you play great teams. You give them that one opportunity, they make you pay. That's why this team is a defending national champion and top five in the country.

    • Louisville Coach Rick Pitino: That's one of the best coaching jobs that I have seen in my 39 years. He (Coach Masiello) just made us have to guard on the perimeter with four guards.
