"The night we played, none of us had a sense of what it meant. We'd run across some ugly scenes, playing in the South, but I grew up in New York City watching St. John's and NYU, so I'd seen black players before and never thought much about it. But not long after we won, I went home for Easter break and so many people came by to congratulate me, my mom just left the door open. Then I went over to my cousin's store. He said, `I'm really proud of you guys. I never thought I'd see so many black faces on a court all at the same time.'
