“It should be incredible. It has all the bells and whistles you want. You’ve got the fans and you’ve got TV. You have one team that is really, really good and one team trying to get there.”
Michael Jones; UA’s starting lineup:
“He helps us because we have to keep pace offensively. He’s a good answer for us. I don’t see any reason to change our lineup right now. Mike will battle and fight.
Areas worked on with the open date on Wednesday:
“Wednesday we started off drifting a little then picked it up and got re-focused. They have some excitement built up but I don’t think I’ll see it in practice. We had to decide early this week how we were going to do certain things and make sure we’re on the same page.
“This week we’ve looked at different areas that can take our team to another level. One of those areas is on the boards. We have to be more active and want to get to the glass. Another area is free throw shooting. We’ve responded the last couple of games. That and rebounding would make a big difference for us.
“Jonathon Modica has really been practicing well and Steven Hill, the last couple of days, has been more aggressive. Olu Famutimi has played his best basketball the last couple of games. This break was good for us.”
