Q: Who will the family members root for?
Rick: Well, Joanne [his wife, Richard's mother]... will sit behind [Richard's] bench, Michael [another son] will sit behind mine and Chris [another son] will go to the highest bidder.
Richard: So many people make a big deal about where Mike and Chris are sitting. I think they care more about who they're going to celebrate with after the game. That's more important to them.
Q: By now, you both know each other so well. What's the difference maker?
Rick: He knows we're going to try to do some different things. We have never played a Triangle and Two [defense], he will not be ready. But we have to play it. Their backcourt is something that must be stopped and I'm going to try it for the first time in my coaching career.
Q: Do you believe him?
Richard: No, I do not.
