General comments: "Obviously we are very excited to be in the tournament. We are playing a god Kent team, and I have been very impressed with their excellent guard and post play. He (Kent head coach Bob Lindsay) does a great job substituting his players. This should be a great game."
On the similarities between Arizona and Kent: "We are very similar in points scored and free throw percentage. Kent is No. 1 in the NCAA Tournament in free throw percentage."
On importance of guard play: "Obviously it is very important to take care of the ball. I think we are bigger up front, but both teams will go to their benches."
On similar teams to Kent: "I think they (Kent) are a combination of Colorado State because of their outstanding guard play and Oregon State because they play extremely hard. I have been very impressed."
On the depth of the tournament and playing at Tennessee: "This is basically a neutral site for us and Kent. However, I do think that there is definitely an advantage for Tennessee to play at home."
