QUOTES OF THE DAY

Junior cornerback Casey Hayward on facing one of the nation's top passing teams in Kentucky:

"My main role will be a lockup point guard. I'm not going to let any point guard come in and think he can run his offense. And if I get the ball on the fast break, we go. Coach told me I'm too quick to be walking the ball up the court."

Freshman point guard Kyle Fuller on his role on the team:

"We haven't prepared any differently for this race. It's a championship race, so we'll try to approach it the same way we approached the SEC meet. If we have another race after this weekend, that would be great."
