DP: Should college athletes be paid?
DP: You don't believe that?
KEA: No, I don't.
DP: Wait a minute. Educations are expensive.
KEA: They're definitely expensive. But at the same time, you might have to feed your family. And I think a reasonable check every semester isn't asking too much.DP: Has fatherhood helped you on the court?
KEA: Well, I have more patience now.
DP: You go from guys in practice whining all the time, then home to your two boys, who are crying too.
KEA: Never get away from it. But I have a little bit more control at home.DP: Who could the Houston Comets beat in the Big East?
KEA: They'd give BC a run.
DP: I'm sure BC's going to love to hear that.
KEA: Just being honest.DP: Can Master P play?
KEA: I saw him play in one of his first games with the Fury. He showed a little bit of game. But I don't know if he could take it to the next level.
DP: He can't play. You know what? Bring Master P on. I'm ready for him.
DP: I called him out on the radio! I'm not afraid! He's got all the gold in his mouth, though. That's what I'm worried about, because when I go down the lane, I don't want to bust up those teeth.
KEA: Umm, okay.DP: Can we do anything with Jake Voskuhl's hair?
KEA: I don't think so. Snake loves that Texas/Southern/Randy Travis style. That's always going to be him.
DP: It's a bad look, though. Do UConn women love his hair?
KEA: Oh, definitely. Everywhere we go.
DP: He's the Ricky Martin of college basketball?
KEA: I would say yes.DP: Did your mom really bench you in high school for bad grades?
KEA: Yeah, she did -- for four games. She thought I was getting a bit sidetracked. We went 3-1.
DP: Does the crowd ever get on you about your weight?
KEA: Oh, yeah, but I use it as motivation.
DP: What do they say to you?
KEA: Fat boy, doughboy. But I feel very good about my shape right now. I'm cut.
DP: You're not cut.
KEA: Last year, look at the Final Four interview. I had my shirt off. I'm cut!
DP: Do you think I'm some kind of sicko checking out the student body?
KEA: Hey, I do have a nice figure!
