On Roy Williams: “He’s won at Kansas and UNC. But who couldn’t do that … besides Matt Doherty?”

On Rick Barnes: “There’s just no bang for the buck, is there? All that talent, so much in there every year — and nothing to show for it.”

On Scott Drew: “If Bill Self had his talent the past three years, they’re winning the national championship at least once.”

On Jay Wright: “I’ll tell you this about Villanova and Jay Wright. In all our prep over the years, he’s the only coach we never prepared a scouting report for.”

On Ben Howland: “Just watch what they do next year. They’re gonna win because they’ve got all that talent. But when has he won without it?”

On Tommy Amaker: “He had his shot against the big boys [at Michigan] and couldn’t get anything done. And now he’s a good coach? Because he won the Ivy League with way better players than everybody else? Come on.”
