“I thought tonight was a heck of a college basketball game. The environment was everything we dreamed it would be and what we thought about what the new Welsh-Ryan could be. Our students were fantastic.”
— Sullivan-Ubben Head Men’s Basketball Coach Chris Collins on the environment during the contest against No. 5 Michigan
“[Pardon] and Vic [Law] have done a phenomenal job getting the team ready to compete this year and setting the tone in so many ways. No one works harder than Pardon and he has worked his way into being one of the premier big guys in college basketball” — Collins on senior leadership
“With this new group, it is hard to start the season and finish these close games, but it is very apparent we can hang with whoever we play with. Whatever the next situation we get late in the game is, we will be prepared.” — Vic Law on lessons learned from No. 5 Michigan
“I’m starting to get more comfortable in the new offense. The ball is finding my way more and I feel like I’m in a rhythm now.” — Dererk Pardon on back-to-back 20 point games
