Memphis Head Coach John Calipari
"Pierre Niles starts practicing tomorrow. I want to get him minutes in Monday's game. He won't play too much, but I want to get him and Joey rotating in and out, and use him as the third big man."
"I'm disappointed that they played zone against us the whole game. These exhibition games we try to get better, and I wanted my young guys to get in motion. They played man-to-man twice. I can understand why you play zone, but I had to throw the ball into the post every time. We didn't have to get our young guys thinking too much."
"There was a lot of good stuff. It was a little bit disappointing. I wanted to see some man-to-man a little more."
LeMoyne-Owen Head Coach Smokey Gaines
"It's a lot of exposure for us. When we get into our league, we won't see anywhere near that level of play. That's a fast-playing team out there."
"Cal does a good job with these kids. He typifies what a good coach should do. Once he started getting good players here, their success kept continuing."
"This has been a good way to get some exposure for us. We're trying to build a tradition at LeMoyne-Owen, and these games are good ways for us to build for the future."
