What Tom Crean had to say before Georgia basketball-Kentucky game
On his relationship with Coach Cal…
“We’ve had a friendship for a long time. I have a ton of respect for him, I have long before I ever met him and I certainly have during the years of our friendship and the times of competing against him. I think he’s a great coach, I think he’s built great programs wherever he’s been all the way back to UMass. I think he deserves to be in the hall of fame like the other ones who are coaching now deserve to be in it because he’s done it at such a high level and he keeps his foot on the gas constantly. He makes sure that his players keep their foot on the gas so you’re got that kind of standard of excellence that he has you can’t help but respect him.”
On the environment you expect tomorrow night…
“I think it is going to be a big week because actually I think Florida sold out right before Kentucky. No question about it, our fans have been great. They have been building up, but we need them to be here early, to be loud, to be crazy, obnoxious, whatever it takes early on to establish themselves. Just for them to be into the game and help us through everything. If we are on a run, help us keep going. If we have to get a run going, help us get that going. Continue to read the game the way they have and just be loud. It is our first ESPN audience of the year too so I think that is great to bring a lot of attention to not only our program, their program and the SEC but it brings a lot of attention to the fan base. I think it is a great opportunity to show off what we are trying to establish here when it comes to the crowd, the atmosphere, the tickets sold. Most importantly, we need them and that has been said since day one. That has been the case since game one and that is certainly the case if we are going to have success tomorrow night.”
On the recruiting of Ashton Hagans and the challenges he presents…
“I think first and foremost he had de-committed before we got here. I know him and we certainly went to visit him but he never came to campus. When you don’t have somebody on campus I don’t put into context that we didn’t get him. We never got him up here to see what we were doing and that’s fine. He made a choice for himself and that’s good. I would venture to say there isn’t a better defensive and attack minded guard in the freshman class throughout the country. He is playing that way. His ability to create steals, he had eight against North Carolina and his ability to create havoc on the ball, off the ball, getting to the rim, it is outstanding. He is playing with a ton of confidence. I think people who knew him, or knew of him, knew he had that and all of the sudden, as he got more opportunity at Kentucky and with the transfer of Green it came out even more. He is playing at an extremely high level. It is not like you can pinpoint your game plan on one or two or three guys or the backcourt or the front court. Whenever you play John’s team, you have to be ready for the whole team. He isn’t going to put anyone out there that can’t win the game for him or impact the game on both ends. Ashton Hagans is certainly doing that.”
