? Shelby Metcalf, Texas A&M basketball coach, on next season's prospects: "We'll be small but nobody will notice because we'll overshadow that with our poor shooting and lack of speed and experience."

? John Uelses, first man to pole-vault 16 feet, on his surprise appearance, after a six-month layoff, in a minor AAU meet at Miami: "I've seen the world from the end of a pole. Now I want to see it from the ground. Before I always felt pressure. Today I can vault the way I dreamed, for fun. All I want to do is soar up there and wave at a few friends on the way down."
