"In high school, we were ‘the man’ and only cared about scoring. I’m not going to lie, I didn’t play defense in high school. I didn’t know anything about ball screens or how to defend them or hedging. But every day we’ve gotten better and we’re learning all the tools.” — OU freshman forward Tiny Gallon "I think Willie’s out. I do. Hopefully, he comes back, but I think he’s out.” — Gallon, on whether teammate Willie Warren will return next season or declare for the NBA Draft
