“I’m really sad that I don’t have a chance to play here any more but I’ll definitely get back in town a lot. If I had the chance to play four more years here, I swear I would.”
“This is not really the last goodbye because we want to come back here with a national championship to celebrate.”
“Dad, you gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I got to live out a dream and I’m so grateful for it.... It was an unbelievable experience. It was something coming in to it, that we thought we should have figured out, that we would have a player-coach relationship on the court and a father-son relationship off it, just to make sure that my teammates respected and me deserving to be there. The thing that I respect the most about you is that every player that comes here leaves a better person."
