  • Quotes

    • Virginia Coach Tony Bennett: To get to the Sweet 16, that's the rarefied air of college basketball, and you're going to have to play. We know who's waiting (Michigan State), we know how good they are, and it will be us trying to test our game against one of the teams that's playing its best basketball right now.

    • Memphis Guard Joe Jackson: They've got to be the best defensive team I've ever played against in college. They never lose sight of the basketball, and they just help each other out on every possession. You will never get an easy layup on them.

    • Virginia Guard Joe Harris: This is just the way we play. If people are not familiar with watching us, we love to just grind it out. We love the long defensive possessions. We love just making teams work when they're defending us. It's just kind of what Virginia basketball is all about.

    • Memphis Guard Geron Johnson: Virginia came out, played Virginia basketball: out-toughed us, out-aggressived us. They made shots. Every time we made a mistake, they capitalized on it with a bucket. There's no excuses. They beat us fair and square.

    • Virginia Guard Malcolm Brogdon: Of course we try to come out and impose our will from the beginning. But if that doesn't happen and we don't break them right off the bat, we're going to keep going and keep playing our type of defense and offense. And at some point, we're going to wear them down and break their back.
