Dookie V:

"This rivalry is so lame. I long for the day when ESPN will no longer send me to Cameron to sit in front of those nut cases who get themselves so worked up over a friggin' basketball game. Shouldn't they be in the library studying?"

OK, that's not what he really said. But does anybody wish he'd do something besides gush, gush, gush......

The N&O's Caulton Tudor:

"The loser tonight in Cameron will come out of the game with a world of motivation and an accurate reading on what it needs to improve in order to beat a top-five team in a pressure situation. By the same token, the winner might leave with a false sense of security."

Charlotte Observer's Tom Sorenson:

"If you assess the matchups the way I would, Shelden Williams is the only Duke starter to get an edge (provided none of the Tar Heels implode or take themselves out of the game)."

Sean May, on J.J. Redick:

"J.J. loves to talk trash, and he's just a competitor. You can't blame him for that, but it gives you a reason to hate people."

David Noel on Redick:

"He throws up some stuff that has no hope of going in and it does. He'll use 30 screens on one play. He'll run around like a mouse in a maze."

Roy Williams:

"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Nobody is a favorite going into Cameron Indoor Stadium. Give me a break. No one will ever be a favorite going to play Duke at Duke."

Coach K:

"I don't think anyone gets the ball up the floor as fast as North Carolina does. We can't practice that; otherwise we'd have (Raymond) Felton on our second team. Having Felton lead the break is big."
