- Bill Courtney is quoted by the Binghamton Press Sun Bulletin on the Mike Rice Scandal. The Sun Bulletin writes:
“He’s always been an intense guy,” said Courtney, a 1992 Bucknell graduate who played against Rice when he was at Fordham and later saw him at basketball camps. “But obviously, what you see on that film is shocking. You don’t expect any coach to behave that way, and what you see on that tape is almost unbelievable.”Courtney said there is no room for physical abuse of players .“You never put your hands on a kid, unless it’s to give him a hug or a pat on the butt or something like that,” he said. “You never put your hands on a kid or use such abusive language. You get fiery or salty at times, but you never come close to that kind of language. I can’t imagine anything that would anger me so much that I would do something like that.”

- The Naples News writes, "It is much more likely that FGCU over the rest of this decade will join the list of 20 small to mid-major schools -- (2004) St. Joe's, UAB, Nevada; (2005) Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Utah; (2006) Bradley, George Mason (2007) Southern Illinois, UNLV; (2008) Davidson, Western Kentucky; (2010) Northern Iowa, Cornell, St. Mary's; (2011) Richmond, VCU, San Diego St., BYU; (2012) Ohio (2013) LaSalle -- that had one great run to the Sweet 16 or beyond."
- The Providence Journal interviewed Brown's Mike Martin. On Harvard’s upset win over New Mexico in the NCAA Tournament, Martin said, “I think it’s great! I couldn’t be more happy for Tommy and his program. It was just another example for people to see that our league is getting better and better. We are becoming one of the more competitive mid-major conferences in college basketball. What Harvard did and Cornell’s run a few years ago are a good example of that.”
- A Harvard Crimson beat writer notes, "on a number of recent occasions, Lavietes Pavilion has almost felt like a neutral court. The arena is made up of eight sections, and whenever opposing Ivy teams—especially Penn, Princeton, and, to a lesser extent, Cornell—visit Cambridge, a quarter of them are filled with supporters of Harvard’s rivals. I believe that the obstreperous presence of Quaker fans in last season’s final regular season contest was a major reason why the Crimson’s 28-game home winning streak came to an end, and Tigers and Big Red fans always make their presence felt as well. Of course, it’s understandable why those three schools would have the largest fan bases in the conference. The Killer P’s have been the Ancient Eight’s traditional powers; together, they account for almost 70 percent of league’s tournament appearances. Cornell, too, continues to reap the benefits of its recent three-peat and ensuing Sweet 16 run."
