I think it helped us as coaches. I think it helped the players on the court and helped us in the other areas that rely on things that were significant. … I knew it was going to be a significant year in all of our lives. I knew that going into this year because of what was going to be coming at us because of that from a basketball standpoint. So, I just knew we needed each other.”Guy on his game-winning free throws”I think for me and probably every basketball player, everyone’s envisioned themselves winning a game on this stage. Like you said, I just try to get in my own zone and focus in. I knew that my teammates had confidence in me, and that gives me more confidence than I’ll ever be able to give myself.”Jerome on potentially winning the title“We’re mostly excited to go out there and compete. We’d love to cut down the nets. I would probably be speechless if we’re able to do it. I’m sure it would mean the world to me. It’s what every kid hopes for and what we work so hard for, but like coach said, the joy is in the competition.”center_img Tre Jones returns to Duke for sophomore season Beard on playing for the championship“Our goal has never been to make a tournament. It’s been to win the tournament. It’s easy to talk about, and really, really hard to do. But that’s where we started this whole thing, was just trying to have the expectations and the vision where we could be relative.”Culver on playing for Beard“He’s a tireless worker. He brings the best out of you, no matter if you’re a walk-on, the best player, coaching staff, GA, he brings the best out in you. He works hard, and he’s never satisfied. He wants to win. Winning is important, and that’s what it is for us.”last_img read more
