March Madness is over, and it was certainly a fun one. But we can still appreciate the great coaches and their wisdom. Here are 10 of the best quotes from coaches in March Madness

“If the best players are your hardest workers, you have a chance. Humility and work ethic are usually the two components that translate into being a really good player. Good people make good players.”

  • Oral Roberts coach Paul Mills

“Discipline is the highest form of love. If you really love someone, you have to give them the level of discipline they need.”

  • Michigan State coach Tom Izzo

“Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap. Humble people share the credit and wealth, remaining focused and hungry to continue the journey of success.”

  • Iona coach Rick Pitino

“I told our guys this is a we and this is about our family. My expectation is that they’re your kids’ heroes, and people that our families can look up to. Our families are going to come to practices. We’re going to be apart of this as a family. We will win together, and in the end, we hope those scissors get put to use real quick.”

  • North Texas coach Grant McCasland

We can’t be focusing on who we have out there or not. We’ve just got to go out there and play hard and be aggressive. If we have one or two guys that are out, we’ve got to roll up our sleeves and go to work.

  • Michigan coach Juwan Howard

“I believe in developing relationships with the whole team. Not one player is above the team, including the coach. There is no special treatment. I don’t care if you’re talking about Reece Gaines or Kenyon Martin.”

  • UCLA coach Mick Cronin
