Brian Wardle: "Am I excited about that game? Absolutely. I don't know why you wouldn't be," he said. "People can say it's just another game, but it's not when it's all said done.

Buzz Williams: “I think my mentality is the same. I think my personality, I’ll probably have to adjust it and be a little more patient.
