Everybody’s situation is different. If Tim Duncan stayed in school another four years it didn’t matter what Tim Duncan did his senior season. I think there are some guys that are NBA guys… I think Ronnie is definitely a guy who could play in the NBA. It doesn’t matter if he stays or whether he...
They really honed in on him. When he got a little bit open, they would rotate on him pretty good.
Silly me. I probably should have had him in there more getting shots 70 feet away from the basket.
Part of his growing process is he’s got to learn to play through sickness and illness. I expect him to be 30 percent better by [today ] anyway, but he’s got to learn to play through that and he’s got to learn to be effective while he’s not feeling his best.
When we can get in transition, we’re a dynamite team. We’re fun to watch.
They get it to each other very well. Second in assists in the country.
I said, ‘I’m going to give you one more chance,’ and I gave him one more chance. And he responded.
For 39:30 we outplayed them and had the game in hand. It’s a game that set us back.
Very possible. We’ll see what happens. But I do expect him to be more of a veteran player than a rookie.
We tried to get after them defensively without Strawberry. McCray did a good job handling the pressure.
He wants to play in the NBA. He knows that’s a big part of his future. In order to do that the rule was specifically made for guys like him, guys who aren’t really considered in that realm of a first-round draft pick. Ronnie is going to make sure he doesn’t do anything to jeopardize...
They’re playing with more confidence and playing the kind of basketball Kentucky’s been known to play.
Georgia is a very aggressive team, and we had to be careful not to get out of our rhythm. At halftime I encouraged our guys to have more patience if the transition (opportunity) wasn’t there. But our defense really picked up in the second half and created some offense for us.
