•Frank Layden, Utah Jazz coach, complaining about a former player of his: "I told him, 'Son, I can't understand it with you. Is it ignorance or apathy?' He said, 'Coach, I don't know and I don't care.' "

•Joe DiMaggio, comparing the pressures of his 56-game hitting streak in 1941 with those Wayne Gretzky has experienced during his scoring streak, which reached 49 games on Saturday: "He doesn't have to worry about a hockey game getting rained out in the middle of the second period."

•Marv Harshman, University of Washington basketball coach, explaining why he favors size over speed: "Quick guys get tired. Big guys don't shrink."

•Akeem Abdul Olajuwon, the University of Houston's 7-foot center, after a poor first half against unheralded St. Mary's of Texas: "All those little guys kept hitting my hands. And one guy kept running underneath me."
