?Dwayne Roe, assistant basketball coach at Oral Roberts University, asked what he said when he realized the man helping him break up a fight in the ORU-Southwestern Louisiana game was evangelist Oral Roberts: " ' Mr. Roberts, I'm afraid you might get hurt if you don't leave.' At least, I hope that's what I said."

?Al Fleming, Arizona's freshman center, after the Wildcats beat Utah in triple overtime (101-95): "I'm too old for games like that."

?Anne, equestrienne princess of the United Kingdom, to the persistent press, as quoted by London's Daily Mail: "The horse I'm riding today is the same one I was riding on Monday. His name is Columbus, and he's a grey. He belongs to the Queen—got that? I read in the papers I had been riding a horse called Red Passion. No horse of that name is stabled here. You're getting on my goat. Horses are very sensitive. They're not like humans. They don't understand what all the fuss is about."
