?Clyde Vaughan, Pitt basketball player, after consulting about an injured thumb with a psychologist, Gerry Chesin, who uses hypnosis to get the Panthers to play up to their potential: "He told me I don't have any pain so I don't have any pain. But for someone who doesn't have any pain, I'm in pain."

?Weldon Drew, New Mexico State basketball coach, explaining the Aggies' 1-3 start: "We have a great bunch of outside shooters. Unfortunately, all of our games are played indoors."
