Notre Dame Head Coach Mike Brey Quotes

On the play of Colin Falls...
"He missed a couple shots, and then takes a charge. That's how great his head is. He is having fun playing the game. There will be nights where he is going to get a lot of looks."

"He sure does open the floor when he is on the floor because someone is always hugging him and not helping on our big men."

On Butler, Notre Dame's next opponent...
"They are really good. They have some veteran guys who have played a lot of basketball at Butler. They spread you out and really shoot the three-point shot."

On Notre Dame's approach to their next game...
"If we can be as alert and as active as we have been, we will be in position. I think we can run on them. It is a great challenge for us. We are playing for a championship at the end of this thing."

On his outlook for the season...
"If we bring this kind of energy to the table, we are going to have some fun this year, we really are."

IPFW Head Coach Dane Fife Quotes

On the preparation of the teams...
"Coach Brey has really done a good job with his kids. That's the sign of a good coach. His kids really improved over the summer and they really compete and get after it. On the flip side, we came in and thought that we had a chance to win this basketball game, and wow, were we wrong. We were just beaten in every way. That's a reflection of the coach. I take the blame for not having our kids ready, for not instilling the competitive nature they need to compete at this level. I think if they [Notre Dame] compete like that they have a chance in the BIG EAST. It's a very tough conference, but they can compete."

On the play in the post...
"We've got a couple packages. We have a trap. We have a zone. That goes along with the competitive nature we need to instill. We have to instill in our players that competitive fight. Notre Dame defended our post game pretty well. If we don't make adjustments, our kids need to get that drive and that's my fault."
