Of the Final Four teams, the one with the greatest basketball tradition is the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Here are five all-time great University of Kentucky basketball quotes:
1. "Kentucky players put their pants on the same way our players do. It just takes them a little longer to pull them up."
-- Joe Sexson, former Butler coach
2. "I'd just as soon freeze to death."
-- Ashley Judd, Kentucky graduate, on being offered a University of North Carolina jacket on a movie set
3. "They're great. We could play them 10 times and lose nine. I wouldn't be sure we would win the tenth."
-- Rick Majerus, on a great Kentucky team
4. "I've never had major knee surgery on any other part of my body."
-- Winston Bennett, former University of Kentucky basketball player
5. "I know I have plenty of enemies, but I'd rather be the most hated winning coach in the country than the most popular losing one."
-- Adolph Rupp, legendary Kentucky basketball coach
