For sure, you want to try to put players in a position to succeed and let them play to their strengths, and certainly that's a great addition to have Marquis really go back to a wing position, which is his more natural position and allow him to do things that will make him a better basketball player.

We had to get a key hit there. If you asked me the two guys I wanted up, it'd be those two guys - it's a tough game, and you can't get hits every time you want.

There was some good and some bad. We started off very good and hit the ball good but as the game went on I think we made some mistakes from a pitching standpoint and we were giving too much of the plate.

It may not look like it, but he has an unbelievable inner toughness. It's not physical toughness when you get poked in the eye as much as it is mental toughness. He came out and played like it never happened. He was fearless.

I thought all three games were good ball games. I was a little disappointed that we didn't hit as well as we had throughout the rest of the season, but the positive side to that though is that we did hit at the right time.

He's grown and matured over the years in such a unique way.

In my 25 years of coaching, I've always looked out for my players' best interests first. I believe if a player is a guaranteed first-round pick ? a guaranteed first-round pick ? then he should go (to the NBA) if that's what he wants to do.

Every time it rains we get a real mess. It's very disheartening.

They were there for Renee 24/7. I could not believe everyone who came by to help. People like Amy Kessler and many others. I was talking Earl Thom about it, and do you know what he said? He said of course they wanted to be there, they loved Renee and they are Hazel Parkers.
