Quote: "[DeAndre Daniels] and I were talking about that yesterday, that it will be the last time we'll play in the Garden this year," sophomore Ryan Boatright said. "So we've definitely got to make sure we go out and get a win considering we dropped the ball against NC State [in Madison Square Garden on December 4th]."

Quote: "Everybody blocks shots," Boatright said. "It's isn't like `oh, [Chris Obekpa] blocks five shots.' I played against Anthony Davis. There are plenty of shotblockers that I run up against. It isn't a big thing; we just have to finish and play smart basketball."

Our friends at the UConn blog are invested in something called "Signing Day" that involves a sport called "football" so our Q&A came too late to be included.
