"I think it's going to be a little bit mixed, the sense of pride hoping he (Jimmy) does well, just not too well to beat us," McNamara said. "Coach is who he is. At the end of the day, he wants to win, and that, above all else, is going to overpower anything."
"I think he's feeling more comfortable," said Gerry McNamara, who had a school-record 400 3-pointers in his Syracuse career and now serves as a graduate assistant. "He's really asserting himself. That's what coach wanted him to do all season. When he gets going, he's as good of a shooter that's out there. Early in the season, I think he was a little hesitant."
