— Haws told the Desert News: “We’re disappointed we’re not in the big (NCAA) tournament, but you take what you can get and you just want to keep playing basketball as long as you can.”
— BYU coach Dave Rose talked about the Wilcox-Haws relationship and told the Salt Lake Tribune: “That is an interesting storyline to the game. C.J. had a great high school career here in [Utah] County. I think a lot of our guys who played here know him. Obviously, him and Tyler are very close. And with his dad playing here, this will probably be a pretty special opportunity for him.”
— If the Huskies win tonight, they could face No. 2 Tennessee, which is disappointed about missing the NCAA tournament.
— Vols coach Cuonzo Martin told The Telegraph: “So we beat top 25 teams, four if I’m not mistaken. You beat top-50 teams, top-100 teams. Our résumé stacks up against the best when you’re talking about a bubble team, per se.”
— Defending NIT champion Stanford begins the tournament today with a home game against Stephen F. Austin.
