Coach Morong's comments, "Well, to say these are familiar opponents is an understatement. No matter who we are matched up with, we will be playing them for the third time this season, which means there is a certain amount of predictability involved. Our first game of the tournament could be against the host school, and it is never easy to win on another teams court in February. We just need to focus on playing our best basketball and working as hard as we can. Everything we've done since late-August has been in preparation for moments like this, and we are looking forward to this opportunity."
