Mike Krzyzewski quotes
Guys are accustomed to hearing his voice, so when he took over as the interim head coach it wasn't shocking.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amile played one of the great games. God bless him. He was fantastic.
I'm glad he had the vision to get this thing started.
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.
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.
I know if he can play, he will play. We're going to try and win. We would like to win.
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.
Mason made a big-time play and it was well guarded.
I think Grayson had a very frustrating game.
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.
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.
For me, this (gold) ranks just like the others.
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.
It was just a real different game today.
I wouldn't call it relief, I just think we are evolving.
What a remarkable run by Argentina and so we knew we had to match that energy tonight. I thought we did.
We don't give enough credit to the talent level on the other team.
We do have more talent. We have to get our talent playing even much better as a team.
This is the real world now and that's good for us.
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.
I don't think they've gone back to their boat or apartment or wherever they're staying thinking they can't beat us.
