Quotes:

“I am delighted to see this match-up between Austin Murphy and Efren Reyes. Obviously, Efren is one of the greatest players ever. Austin is an outstanding player already, and he’s only 14. I think this is Austin’s chance to make a statement about his game to the pool world. And, if Austin performs on the pool table anything like he does academically, Efren is going to have his hands full.”
