“I’m really excited for the game tonight. I’m definitely expecting a big win. Michigan has been a bigger Cinderella than Loyola (Chicago) if you ask me. Like the (Bo Schembechler) saying goes, ‘those who stay will be champions.'”

“Being a University of Michigan-Flint alumnus, it’ll be big to be able to see my team win a championship. I can’t remember the last time they won the championship. And also, just for this campus, it could bring a lot of energy. Even though we’re not the Ann Arbor campus, we’re still a part of it.”
