  • "We think our freshman, our big guys are going to have good years but our nucleus is the returning veteran guys. We think we’ve got a good group and should have a good basketball team." - Jim Boeheim
  • "I think our big guys, not only Fab but Baye Moussa Keita and DaShonte Riley, I think we have three really good big guys.  Bigger than we've had in a while. We're a lot bigger inside.  So we think our freshman and our big men are gonna have a good year." - Jim Boeheim, bullish on his big men.
  • "It's more of an excitement, for who we are as a program. We have a few things in place, and have done a lot to build the foundation, so I don't think we look at it as a grind, it's more of a sense to see where all the hard work paid has off this offseason." - Doug Marrone on the impending preseason camp.
  • The tournament itself raised $75,000 for the Jim & Juli Boeheim Foundation.
