Billy Donovan
The thing that gave me the most enjoyment on the bench is that I've never seen so many players at one time wanting to see him do it, wanting to see him grab a rebound or get an assist or score. I've never seen anything like that.

Bob Melvin
He is similar to Tony [Clark], who has learned this [reserve] role. Being a bench player isn't easy to do, and the quicker they accept it and fine a routine that works for them, these are the guys that are the most successful.

I think for a young guy like Colson, coming off the bench, there is less pressure. You get to see what is going on and then can come in and give us a jump start which he has done. I tell him all the time that you don't have to score a lot to have an impact on the game.
Mark Schmidt

We've got the deepest bench in the state. Even with a few of our key players hurt, we've still got seven or eight guys deep. We work the 3/4-court man (defense) the whole time and by the end of the game they were worn out.

Frank Brothers
#Bench

He hit two 3-point shots off the bench and he is a hero. He is a special kid and his mom passed away this summer. He's special because I think she is looking down and smiling. He isn't playing as much, but he is a big part of this team.

I really liked the way we competed in the second half. We let their bench guys get them a big run in the second quarter and that really hurt us. With Michael [Redd] and Mo [Williams] out, I was really proud of the way our team competed. We made Tracy [McGrady] work for every shot he took. We had a shot to win the game at the end, and I can't ask for anything more. I still thought we had a lot of good looks at the basket.
Terry Stotts

(Blount) was looking to the bench to get some instructions. We had just missed a shot and I didn't want to get into another overtime. The only thing that I was worried about was trying not to foul. I'm glad that I didn't foul and I'm glad we got the win.

It's too bad we let it get out of hand with what we wear on the bench. ... I don't think it's going to change much. On the bench, I definitely understand. We shouldn't wear a throwback jersey or a do-rag on the bench.
Lamar Odom
#Bench

We took penalties that we normally don't take. When you've got a short bench and you have to kill penalties, it's hard to get much momentum going. We wanted to conserve energy and make Upper Arlington use up a lot of their energy, not the other way around.
Perry Pooley
#Bench

We get our reps in, then the guys who come off the bench more scrimmage a little bit more than we do. It's good as long as we're there mentally for the practice days.
