To have a player of Patrick's ability available this late in the game is rare. We are very excited about him joining our team. He's an exciting player. He plays hard on both ends of the court. He's a very good shooter with deep range and he has the ability to play both guard positions.
More Quotes from Stan Heath:Our league is very strong. It's better than it was in November and December. Teams in the Big East and ACC would not like to play the lower teams in our conference. I hear people say other conferences should get 10 and eight bids. We should get at least six teams in the tournament.
We just haven't had the consistent play at that spot and it's been something that's hindered us, especially late in the game, in terms of having a guy who is comfortable and confident down the stretch to make plays.
I know their guards are good players. They are very capable of stepping up and making things happen. If we're focused, really defending and moving our feet, we can disrupt them. But we have to make sure we play at that energy level.
We've clearly shown that we're a lot better making defensive and offensive plays down the stretch. We're doing a much better job now. That confidence and momentum should carry us.
We have got great momentum going into the tournament now. We'll play these guys again, and I really think Georgia is a much better team than they showed today. I really expect their guards to step up in the tournament. Next time is going to be a lot tougher.
McNaughton is a handful. I've got one of the best defensive centers in the country and I hope he doesn't get in any kind of foul trouble. He relishes shutting someone down. He's going to make McNaughton earn every basket. We don't want him to shoot a high percentage -- that's our goal.
