Bobby Perryis an American basketball player who played both forward positions for the University of Kentucky from 2003 to 2007...
We knew they were foul prone. Their big guys go after a lot of shots.
We know we haven't put ourselves in the best position for a high seed. Every opportunity you get in the NCAA Tournament you're happy to get. ... Any team can win. To have the opportunity to take out a No. 1 seed is better for us.
We know we can't lose any more home games.
We've said if we do our thing here, we've got a pretty good chance of getting to the Final Four. We need to bring it together.
My family is No. 1. I appreciate my family more.
We just have to be mentally prepared. Because it's a tough place to play. It will be a tough battle no matter how young they are.
He was like a teacher in a classroom. He just wanted to get his message across. If we did something wrong, he'd show discomfort and disappointment. It wasn't like he was jumping to the ceiling and raising cain.
I wouldn't say it was a slump. It just was not a good period. I knew I could still do this. It was just a matter of time, even though I was wondering when that time was finally going to come again.
Kansas was a big team. We didn't really handle it well, but I think we can treat that as a learning experience and hopefully build on it.
Joe was awesome. He's been waiting for that breakout game. He kept us in the game.
Joe's an excellent player. We knew that coming out of high school. It was a matter of time (for Crawford) to get his confidence back. I think he's going to really blossom to the player everyone knows he can be.
I think it's a good thing for our well being and also his well being. When we see him over there ranting and raving, it kind of pays a toll on our mind set.
I think it goes back to our focus and being ready for the game. I think it was just focus.
I thought we played them tough but they did some things down the stretch that separated us.
I thought we played excellent today. That shows you how good they are.
I think it was huge for me to have a big game like this, especially shooting wise. Early in the season my percentages haven't been as high as I'm capable of so to have a game like this is huge for my confidence.
I think we came out focused even though we didn't play the best game.
I think somebody sniped me from up in the rafters. No, I was exhausted and I just tripped over my feet.
I think he's the best shooter on the team by far. For him to be here four years and have a breakout game like this, it's unbelievable.
We've thought about it. It's human nature. I'm not going to lie about it. But we know we have to get by this game.
That was the emphasis for this game: get the ball inside. We know their post men are not the biggest. Randolph could have been a huge factor. We probably did put up too many outside shots.
We have a lot to lose. We're here to compete for a championship. We're not looking at the seeds. We're looking at the opportunity to move on to the next round.
We can't afford to lose at home again. We know that.
You know what you're going to get with most everybody now. We just need a few more consistent players.
We needed stops, and they kept getting open threes. That was a big blow. They hit another one and another one, and the whole game changed.
We had tons of chances to win the basketball game.
This would have been huge. I don't think it damaged our chances for the NCAA Tournament, but it's an opportunity missed.
When Patrick gets on a roll like that ...
The past is behind us. I hope it just clears our mind so that we can come together and move on and start winning some games.
We've had ups and downs, but tomorrow is a chance, a great opportunity for us. At Kentucky, it's about championships. It'd be great to win and great to get to the Sweet 16, but we've got a lot more games to play. The good thing about downs is that the ups are coming.
We've had ups and downs, but tomorrow is a chance, a great opportunity for us.
We've had some tough losses. We had three straight going into the Georgia game. This was huge. It's going to be a tough game in Baton Rouge against LSU, though.
We're disappointed. We got the win, and that's the most important thing, but we've got to figure out what's wrong and find the solution for it.
You've got to respect Randolph on the inside, and that opens up a lot of things on the perimeter. I'd like to think that our bad offensive days, the days of everybody just standing around, are over.
This is a game we can build on. We got the ball moving, we ran the floor, we got assists, we controlled the rebounding. There were a lot of things that we did well. Most important, we got the win.
They don't remember how you start or what happened in-between. They just remember how you finish, how you did in the tournament.
It's made us focus more on the little things. Every pass. Every cut.
Everybody wants to beat us. Right now, people think we're vulnerable. They're going to take it as hard as they can and as long as they can. They're going to beat us as bad as they can.
Everybody knows that when Pat has a great game like that, the whole team has a great game.
It's huge. They have been one of the best teams in the last decade and Kentucky has been a big part of college basketball for a long time. It's a thrill to be part of this type of game.
I'm just playing hard and doing what I'm supposed to do. I just want to stay focused, and do what I know I can do.
I just think we came out focused and aggressive. We've been getting off to slow starts, and we came out ready to play this time.
I definitely got worried. Adrenalin starts running. They put the pressure up. I don't know if it's nervous, but just anxious.
I don't think (this loss) is damaging. I think it's an opportunity missed.
You can't replace someone like Chuck Hayes. It's only so often that someone like that comes around. It's going to be a team effort this season, and we'll rely on the upperclassmen to carry this team.
You can't rely on the ball bounce, you have to go get it.
You've got to realize it's not the end of the season. We know we can't lose any more home games. Our focus is on winning, just winning that one game.
