→North Carolina coach Roy Williams:
"Tyler Hansbrough ... was a beast defensively with the things that he did in the second half. Now, in the first half, I didn’t like what he did.”
→OU senior Taylor Griffin:
"We did a pretty good job on defense. You know, North Carolina’s probably the best offensive team in the nation. So I don’t think that that was a problem.”
"I do think we were a little bit tight. Sometimes you can want something so much, you’re trying so hard, and I think that’s what happened to us early in the game.”
→UNC forward Tyler Hansbrough, on Blake Griffin:
"He’s tough down low to box out. He’s one of the best rebounders I’ve played against.
