Inscription.

"We've played in tougher places. At Wichita State, those fans would stand up and clap at the beginning of each half, and until their team scores, they don't sit down. We had 'em clapping for four minutes one time...And I think everybody had a knife but us. That was a tough place to play."

John Cheney, former Temple head basketball coach from 1982-2006, when asked about a pro-Carolina crowd they would face at a 1988 tournament in Charlotte, N.C.
