We just don't have any depth. Sometimes, we might play five guards. We'll be tiny.

The football team's success has added a mystique about the university. The fact that they're building a new arena shows great commitment on their part that they want to have national-level success in the basketball program as well.

Before I left to go to the NBA, I said, (Bennett) is one of the five guys I'd never schedule. It's how he gets guys to play. Every possession is important. Their transition defense is as good as any in the country.

Two weeks ago, Stewart couldn't have done this. Tonight, he rebounded, really defended and had the poise to take good shots.

We've grown up a lot since the first couple games of the year. I wasn't sure if we could handle the test tonight.

We've grown up a lot since the first couple of games of the year defensively. We've learned to get back defensively, and we're controlling the tempo of the game.

I'm a little hesitant to anoint this team. I'm still very guarded about who we are. We still haven't beat anybody of note, other than North Carolina, and even Carolina came to town with a new team and on a night when we played our best.

I think this will be the most talent-rich recruiting area I've ever been in.
