Kentucky is one step away from reaching the Final Four. The Wildcats will take on Baylor at 2:20 p.m. Sunday here at the Georgia Dome. The following are quotes and notes to help prepare you for the contest.
Baylor’s Quincy Miller on Kentucky center Anthony Davis: “We call each other brothers and we really have good chemistry. I was planning on going to Kentucky with him and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. We always talked about (going to Kentucky), but I ended up choosing Baylor. We respect each other, but we always talk smack to each other. I know the game is going to be a lot of fun.”
Anthony Davis on the Kentucky fans: “Last night, it was very crazy. I looked to the right and I saw a little section of Indiana and it was like blue blue every where else. I don’t know how they do it, but they find a way to get to very game and sell the house out.”
Darius Miller on the team’s mindset going into Sunday’s game: “We’re having fun and that’s the main part. I feel like the teams that have the most fun this time of year are the ones that advance. We’re all focused in on what we need to do (and) we’ve had some tough wins against some really good teams and I feel if we continue to play this way, we’ll be able to compete with a lof of good teams. … If we get caught up in putting too much pressure on ourselves or thinking about the next game, that’s where teams fall off.”
Doron Lamb on the fatigue factor after the win over Indiana: “That’s the major part of the game, is having our legs ready. We’ll all go out, get massages (and) treatment today and everybody on our team will get ready for tomorrow’s game.”
Terrence Jones on his play during the postseason: “I have just tried to be more aggressive,” he said. “I try to attack the rim on both offense and defense. I try to get the team out on breaks and get us going fast-paced style. I try to push it, take three dribbles and try to get us going.”
Baylor’s Quincy Acy on the team’s neon jerseys compared to the black ones: “There’s no difference. It still has Baylor across the front and we are still the same players. We don’t like to believe in superstition.”
