Syracuse Defeats St. John's: Quotent Quotables

The Syracuse Orange defeated the St. John's Red Storm 95-70 on Saturday. Here are the quotes to prove it.

Dion Waiters before the game:

"I’m back...I’m back, baby, I’m back."

Dion Waiters after the game:

"I told you I was back. A minor setback for a major comeback."

C.J. Fair, upon learning that he hit his first three-pointer since November 29th against Eastern Michigan.

"November?. Dang, that’s long.’’

Rakeem Christmas, summing up the rebounding problem that plagued Syracuse before today:

"Other teams are outrebounding us, and (SU coach Jim Boeheim) doesn’t like that."

Scoop Jardine, on the return of Fab Melo.

"He’s our anchor. As you can see, we’re a totally different team when he’s on the floor with us.’’

Fab Melo, on what it was like to not only be back but to do so well on a "home" court:

It feels good to be back. S/o to my teammates for handling the business well. MSG is def our house, it was like playing at the dome.

Melo on whether or not he was worried he might not play again this season:

"No, I was never nervous. I knew at some point I would play. I wasn’t nervous about it.’’

Melo on what he brings to the 2-3 Zone:

"I know I affect the zone. I intimidate the other team. They're not going to go inside to try to get layups, stuff like that. That's what I do."

Michael Carter-Williams on his monstrous dunk:

"I just saw an opening and just tried to finish it as hard as I could. I was trying to pick us up a little bit. I was trying to be aggressive. It just happened. We were having fun."

Boeheim, on his attempts to get MCDubz in the game more:

"Michael is a very good player. He just needs to get some time, and I just haven't quite figured out how to play four guards."

Dion Waiters, on how Cousin Scoop is always there to cheer on his accomplishments:

"He's always got a new celebration for me every time I do something, and the first person I look at on the bench is him. He was waiting right there when they called a timeout. That's priceless."

Dion Waiters, responding to a St. John's fan on Twitter who said Dion was "trying o act hollywood in our gym" and that he should "gtfoh."

From what i kno its syracuse gym lol

Kris Joseph on Syracuse's ownership of Madison Square Garden:

"We love playing here. It’s fun playing here. Our fans always come out and support. I always feel like our fans over-power the St. John’s fans. I feel like I didn’t hear them all game. When Cuse Nation’s is in the building, that’s a good sign.’’
