Roy Williams, Kenny Williams, Theo Pinson Post-Syracuse QuotesRoy Williams: "So some guy (Theo Pinson) who's maybe the best play maker I've ever coached gets an offensive rebound late in the second half, and he thought it says in the constitution of the United States that he had the right to shoot the ball.

Jim Boeheim, Syracuse Players Post-UNC QuotesJim Boeheim: "Carolina has really played good defense against us in the two games. I thought in Syracuse we handled it a little bit better. But I thought their defense was really good half court, and we just really couldn't get any penetration against them. Obviously seven guys, it's tough to play as many games as we've had to play in the last really two weeks." (ASAP Sports)
