Virginia Player Quotes
November 12, 2010

Freshman Guard KT Harrell
On feeling nervous before the game:
“It was more of an excited feeling than nerves. I was anxious to get out there and play. A lot of fans came to the game so I was a little nervous, but it all went away after tip-off.”

On halftime adjustments:
“Coach [Bennett] told us we had to play a lot harder and defensively get a lot more stops. We got stops and had to finish plays with our rebounding because they got a lot of second chance points.”

On Billy Baron’s shooting performance:
“He can shoot. He is a shooter and we are not really shocked. He shot so well because he is a shooter.”

On William & Mary:
“They are a great offensive and defensive team. We were well prepared to face them, and we did the best we could do.”

Senior Forward Mike Scott
On the game:
“When my teammates passed it down to me I knew I could kick it back out. Some times they would drop into a match-up zone, and we just shot them out of the zone.”

On halftime adjustments:
“I think everyone started off with jitters, but in the second half we came at them strong. I did not make a lot of shots in the first half and it was frustrating, but I focused on rebounding and defending.”

On Billy Baron’s shooting performance:
“I always joke around with Billy and tell him he will never be as good of a shooter as his brother, Jimmy, but I guess he really took that to heart and shot very well tonight.”

On William & Mary:
“Everyone on the floor can shoot, so it was a tough match-up for us.”

Freshman Guard Billy Baron
On his performance:
“First and foremost, we have a game on Monday. So while it is good to be happy [about the victory], we now have to focus on the team we play Monday.”

“It feels great. We have been here since June 12th, and I have been itching to get on the court. In practice I go against Jontel Evans every day, and he has been preparing me for this moment. I am just grateful to be in this position.”

On feeling nervous before the game:
“I definitely did [feel nervous] before the game, but once I got out there the support of my team, family, and coaches was very big. After that first [shot] went down, everything else took care of itself. I talked to my brother before the game and he gave me a lot of confidence. This game is all about confidence.”
