  • I shake your hand, but I'll give you that you've got professional basketball players who said they're not gonna play and we've got amateurs that haven't had a voice.

  • It baffles me that the Big East is still playing basketball.

  • Could these be the last seconds of the game or of the season?

  • Extremely, extremely disappointed.

  • I don't know.

  • £1000 of concrete poured on your shoulders, you know, just crushing.

  • We really felt like we could have ran the table, you know, and just like not even get a chance to play, and it was truly saddening.

  • We got a call down to the meeting room and literally coach coach had tears in his eyes right away.

  • I mean, I don't even think I was able to process it, and I'm still trying to process the fact that I've played my last game and not able to play for a national championship for teams that knew that they were going to be in programs that hadn't been to the tournament for years.

  • And we're having unbelievable years.
