What they are saying
Senior guard Duane Notice on making the tournament and a final run: “I think it’s just a very crucial thing for us all, especially us seniors. We just feel good about the situation and where we’re kind of leaving the program and guiding it towards who we’re leaving it off to. And like Sin said, when we came here, three, four years ago, Coach didn’t promise us that we would be in the Sweet 16, but he promised that if we believed in him, and he believed in us, that he would provide us with an opportunity to kind of make our dreams come true. And it’s kind of coming into fruition right now.”
Senior guard Sindarius Thornwell on being from South Carolina: “Yeah, I just have been born and raised in South Carolina and from South Carolina. Me and PJ (Dozier), we both, I feel like we both played for the same reasons, for our family, for our state, Justin (McKie) also. We all grew up in South Carolina. We all have been through the struggles and with the program and just we all been playing good this season. For us all to be in the spotlight is just tremendous because we don’t feel like we get the recognition that we deserve all season. There was a time when we were No. 1 in the conference, and I don’t think anybody knew about it. But we all been playing great this season and we’re just trying to keep it going.”
