"It all depends on the All-Star games. It's in the wind. There are no secrets. It all depends on these games. I'm just focusing on playing hard. I'm not playing for the people in the stands or for the NBA people."
Louis Williams on playing point guard in the NBA:
"Absolutely, I can play the point. It will be an adjustment, no doubt. I started out as a point guard until I started playing with Mike [Mercer]. It was a comfort thing. Mike liked the ball in his hands, and I was fine with playing the role of the scorer."
Louis Williams on whether or not the East will execute their plays:
"I think we have a group of mature enough guards to get a couple plays in. If we don't, it's all on [Greg] Paulus. He's the point guard."
"Basically, me, my mom and Coach Billups will sit down and figure out what is best for me and my family. Right now I am not thinking about it. I just want to help my team win in these all-star games."
Monta Ellis on the development of his game:
"I'm trying to get my game ready for the next level, not just my shooting. I want to play hard and make good decisions in transition. I'm trying not to do too much and worry about the stands."
Monta Ellis on what the next level will be:
"Whatever the next level may be."
Monta Ellis on whether he has signed with an agent:
"No, that is just a rumor. I don't know why he [Sonny Vaccaro] put that out in the paper. We told him long before the [Roundball] all-star game that I had school work to make up."
Monta Ellis on playing point guard in the NBA:
"I am more comfortable playing the two, but with my size, I'll need to play the one. A move to the one will not be a problem. I just moved to the two the past two years because my team did not have anyone that could score. I have played a lot of point. I just like to play like Reggie Miller and run and come off screens."
Tyler Hansbrough on missing North Carolina's regional final during a McDonald's practice session:
"I had faith they would win. I'm going to the Final Four to watch them."
Tyler Hansbrough on his role next year at North Carolina:
"If everyone stays, I'll come off the bench. I'll help the team by running the court and rebounding."
