Jonathan Wallace on His Bigs, and Other Stuff
Jeez, I hesitate to post anything now, lest angry Georgetown fans again pick on me for being 6 feet tall and a tad over 170. (Note to Hoya fans; not too many fat vegetarians. Some, I suppose, but not too many.)
Let me think, basketball, basketball, basketball.....how's this?
Jonathan Wallace on how to keep his bigs happy: "It's going to be a tough job. Our offense is one that keeps the ball moving a lot and is real active. And those guys put themselves in a lot of good situations to be productive with the ball, and it's my job to get the ball to them. Those guys are some of the most unselfish guys I've ever played with in my life. Those guys are so concerned about getting everybody else open to do their things. Wherever, and by any means we can get scoring, we'll take it."
Roy Hibbert on sharing the wealth: "Well, with our offense, everything is distributed [with] good passing and good screens, so that's really what we focus on with our offense. So it's not to say I'm going to touch the ball all the time; it's to make sure that we get the right shots, setting screens and getting the right shots. It's hard for other teams to guard, but as long as we keep doing what we're doing, we're fine. As long as we win, I'm fine with it."
Roy Hibbert on his two remaining years of eligibility: "Oh, I'll be here for two more years. I have no doubt about that."
Jeff Green on his two remaining years of eligibility: "I've been talking to my dad and I want to get a degree. People in my family haven't gotten the opportunity that I have, so I want to take advantage of that and get myself a degree, so I think I'm going to stay all four years....You know, after basketball, what else am I going to have? So me getting a degree is a big part of my future."
Tyler Crawford on JTIII: "Me and Jeff always call him the smoothest guy on the team, because he has a smooth swagger about himself. Dresses great. He takes time to get dressed, you know what I mean?"
Is he the best-dressed coach in the Big East? "Definitely, definitely. Hands-down, he's my favorite dresser. I like the stuff he puts together."
Kenny Izzo, who do you think is the league's best-dressed coach? Has to be Coach Thompson, right? I was gonna say Jay Wright, but he gets enough credit, right?"
Really? I just said that because he's our coach. He's just smooth, low-profile, well-dressed, but if was going to have to seriously pick one, I guess Jay. You can tell he's making an effort to look as good as he can and outdo everyone. Coach Thompson's more focused on the game, so I'll take that in a coach any day."
Pat Ewing, your thoughts? "I think our whole coaching staff's the best-dressed coaching staff in the nation. In the nation. I think our coaching staff has got that definitely beat. You've got Coach Thompson, he always has his nice suit on with a nice tie, I like the way he dresses. But probably the best-dressed coach on our staff is Coach [Kevin] Broadus; he always has the Gucci shoes, the Prada belt, the Italian-made suit with the silk shirt. He definitely is the top-notch-dressed coach."
Roy Hibbert, what say you? "It's got to be Coach Thompson. When we're on the road, he has a lot of nice suits and sweaters and everything. The Villanova coach has a lot of nice stuff, but I'll take Coach Thompson."
Coach JTIII, your response? "Our kids know their comments about their coach help determine whether they get in the game or not. That's all I'll say about that."
Whoops. That wasn't about basketball, was it? My bad, Hoya fans, my bad.
