"It's scary because me, I never thought being a walk-on, [that] coming into my senior season, I'd be the leading scorer and be 'the man' of the team," said Noel. "... Also, it's lonely, because all of my friends -- most of the class I came in with -- are gone. But we're going to step up and face it, because we can't run from it. ... And I think we really will shock some people this year."

"Somewhere between 12 and 17. I’d love to go to Charlotte at No. 5 or 13. Going at No. 12 (L.A. Clippers) would be good. I’d also be happy at 13 or 14, Charlotte or Minnesota."
