"I think we're going to get our share of teams in the NCAA tournament," Smith said. "You're going to see ACC teams start to get better. It's early in the year and I think we're going to have some late bloomers in this conference."
"Going into every game, nobody has said, 'Let's not guard Nolan Smith,' so I know that teams are going to try to defend me, try and go at me even harder, going forward," Smith said. "Kyle and I take the majority of our team's shots, so just getting sharper, knowing that it's going to be like that, and just play my game — just take strong shots, and stay in that aggressive mindset."
