Kevin Huerter, DL Hall, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Brandon Boykin and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar all chimed in on Glenn Clark Radio this month. Here's what they had to say:
"Melo taught us a lot. He never really got rattled ... the whole team fed off that. I'm definitely comfortable [with being a go-to guy]. Coming from high school, I was kind of in that role, and I know it's a lot different, the stakes are a lot higher [here], the crowds are a lot louder, but I think I'm comfortable making plays down the stretch and making big shots."
- Maryland rising sophomore guard Kevin Huerter June 23 on being comfortable in helping to replace former point guard Melo Trimble in big, late-game situations
"I think I can get out anybody. I think that's the mindset you have to have as a pitcher. You can't go up there scared. No matter what their name or their size is, I don't worry about it. I think I could get anybody out."
- Orioles first-round draft pick DL Hall June 14 on whether he believes he could already get Yankees slugger Aaron Judge out
"The fact that they moved me to fullback instead of just moving on with me is just a blessing. I just took it and ran with it. It was easy for them to just toss me since I've been hurt, but they found a way to get me to make the team and contribute to helping them win. So I'm embracing it."
- Ravens fullback Lorenzo Taliaferro June 19 on being moved from running back to his new position
"I went from 2013 being second in the league in interceptions and potentially people seeing me as one of the top corners in the league, and then didn't have that success the next year or two and then got injured. So I feel like I've got so much more to give. I've got so much potential that I haven't really tapped into, whether it was circumstance or whether it was injury. And I think this is a fresh start for me. I think this a clean slate for me to get back on to what I can do."
- New Ravens cornerback Brandon Boykin June 20 on what he believes he can offer the team this season
"I don't think Coach Wooden would have been able to coach in today's environment because the whole idea of somebody just coming in to stay there for six months and play basketball -- that was alien to him. He wanted the people that came to play for him to go to school and be academically inclined. So that would have been an issue. I don't think Coach would've survived in this environment."
- Basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar June 16 on if his legendary UCLA coach John Wooden could have worked in today's college basketball climate
