Last quote by Mike Krzyzewski

I told them I love these guys. I'm proud of them. I'm disappointed that we didn't win tonight. But at the end of the season I want my guys to either be crying because we've lost or crying because we've just won. And it shows that if you're not doing one of those, that means you never really became a team. It was never really that important. And for these guys, they were a really good team. This is one of the most proud teams for me.feedback

Mike Krzyzewski quotes

Look they're a great program. We're a great program. We're accustomed, they're accustomed to playing in buildings that have a lot of energy, for or against them. That's why the kids go to those schools to be in those moments, to be in a moment like today. So to be in that moment tomorrow, the people who were in the stands, they have a chance to enjoy that because those moments don't happen all the time. Our two programs have created a lot of them.feedback

So that was a quarterfinal game? Holy mackerel. Wow, that was a big-time game.feedback

And the people who don't want us to win, they responded. God bless everyone. But energy produced more energy.feedback

Well, for me, energy produces energy. I think we already had energy, and people saw it. And then Grayson has played for three years all out. All out. All out. That was another example of it, and his teammates and everyone responded.feedback

We're two of the great programs. We're accustomed, they're accustomed to playing in buildings that have a lot of energy, for or against them. So to be in that moment (Friday), the people who were in the stands, they have a chance to enjoy that because those moments don't happen all the time. Our two programs have created a lot of them. I love Grayson. Grayson, I got his back all the time. And everyone in our program has his back all the time. The public eye on our program is a blessing and can be a curse. So we have to be able to deal with all of it.feedback

We are in such a line-item society, a Twitter world. When one thing happens, that's the story. It's a good thing leaders don't lead that way. I hope they don't. I know one uses Twitter a lot.feedback

Well, obviously, there's been great value having it in Greensboro because this is the tournament that everyone copied. And if we didn't have the support of an entire city to support us and keep adding to their beautiful coliseum, this tournament and this league would not be where it's at.feedback

I think that's a heck of a performance when a player it isn't going and then it goes that shows you're a different player. You're a special player when you're able to do that. Crazy as it may sound, I think we're still evolving because of all the injuries and interruptions that we've had. But we're getting better. I don't know who we are completely, but I have good kids. I have really good kids, and they play hard, and they share the ball. Maybe we'll develop a little bit more of an identity here. We've got another chance, let's put it that way.feedback

You saw a game where a lot of guys played well. And that's it. Sometimes, it's not nuclear science here. It's that easy.feedback

Berry was amazing; he played really well the whole game, but the first half was amazing how well he played and shot the ball. But again, he's capable of amazing.feedback

Jackson's 3 was huge. It put them up three, then he made a really good play where we took away his 3 on his pass to Hicks and they got six points on two possessions.feedback

To me, where they improved, is having Pinson there. Because Pinson is an outstanding defender and he doesn't need to shoot the ball. ... He's an easy guy to play with, a great athlete who does dirty work. I think that makes their team better.feedback

They've been in so many close games and they've hit big shots. So when it got down at the end, they've been in those situations before and they've performed well. They hit the shot they were supposed to miss and we were supposed to win. They screwed up my game plan.feedback

The two single biggest things in developing, really, something good are preparation and continuity.feedback

You forget how lucky you are, until something is taken away from you. I'm going to be 70 years old in a week or so, and I still get this?feedback

Basically, though, I've been doing stuff every day, really, with our program. Not as much with the physical nature, but with preparation and some of the things that you just have to do in running a big-time program.feedback

Guys are accustomed to hearing his voice, so when he took over as the interim head coach it wasn't shocking.feedback

The biggest thing for me ... is how tired you get because of pain. Even tonight, you're just in pain all the time. You just want to punch it, but then you're punching yourself. I'm ready to have this taken care of.feedback

As soon as the doctors clear me to do so, I look forward to returning and giving our team 100 (percent) of my energy and attention, which is certainly something that they deserve.feedback

Overall our guys have done great. But we're more in October mode than December, because the mistakes we make now are public or against teams that really can beat you. When you play exhibitions and stuff like that in October and early November, they don't show up as much.feedback

It's not like you give a suspension and it's all over. It's a learning experience, and I'm going to use it as that and as a teaching moment. A teaching moment does not stop by giving one game. Maybe that's what it is. I don't know that right now. Maybe it's three (games), maybe it's two weeks, but he won't play until I feel good about the entire situation where he is at.feedback

I handle things the way I handle them. I think I've handled this correctly and moving forward I will continue to handle it correctly, and I don't need to satisfy what other people think I should do.feedback

Amile played one of the great games. God bless him. He was fantastic.feedback

I'm glad he had the vision to get this thing started.feedback

When you get 29 points on 16 shots – what he'd have, 35 against Maine? Really efficient. He's come through for us beautifully. He's starting to put it together a little bit.feedback

We're banged up more than any team I've ever coached. Before the game and then during the game. I mean, Amile has been hurt this week. He has 15 rebounds and 16 points.feedback

I know if he can play, he will play. We're going to try and win. We would like to win.feedback

I think you can't expect to get a foul. I think he's going to a point where he makes a move and it's a good move and he expects a foul. I'm not saying they're not calling fouls. You can't do that. That can't be what you're doing. The last few minutes, he moved well. He's playing hard when he gets the ball and he needs to play harder when he doesn't have the ball. It's what he did in the last few minutes.feedback

Mason made a big-time play and it was well guarded.feedback

I think Grayson had a very frustrating game.feedback

We understand that no teams have played a regular season game at this point, so many things can and often do change throughout the course of a college basketball season. Certainly, we're excited that people think highly of our team, and the ACC as a whole.feedback

It is always an honor to be ranked No. 1. We understand that no teams have played a regular season game at this point, so many things can and often do change throughout the course of a college basketball season. Certainly, we're excited that people think highly of our team, and the ACC as a whole.feedback

For me, this (gold) ranks just like the others.feedback

This team kept getting better and even those three games in pool play, we had not played that type of game against that type of level of opponent. We said it was a learning experience and our guys did learn and we put it to good practice.feedback

I wouldn't call it relief, I just think we are evolving.feedback

What a remarkable run by Argentina and so we knew we had to match that energy tonight. I thought we did.feedback

We don't give enough credit to the talent level on the other team.feedback

We do have more talent. We have to get our talent playing even much better as a team.feedback

This is the real world now and that's good for us.feedback

Well, we don't live on a boat. We're staying on a boat. I actually live in Durham, North Carolina. I have a swimming pool and once in a while I get on a raft and lie in there. But I've never really thought about living on a boat. Since 1992 the U.S. teams have stayed in different locations and those are the accommodations here and that was good.feedback

I don't think they've gone back to their boat or apartment or wherever they're staying thinking they can't beat us.feedback
