Postgame quotes

By mrasor Published: November 26, 2007

Men's basketball

    Keith Dambrot:
    "We showed we can defend tonight. We couldn't let Tyndale or Christmas kill us, and we didn't. It's not a great win, but we took steps."
    "Woody did a good job throwing out."
    On McNees' passes: "You see these gray hairs, don't you? The guy thinks he's Magic Johnson."
    On Conyers: "This guy is a good shooter. He just hasn't shown it yet."
    "Having a healthy Cedrick makes us a better team."
    On Temple's Sergio Olmos: "I didn't think he could get 11 all season, but he did (tonight)."
    On poor foul shooting: "I try not to talk about it. All we can do is shoot the reps and be positive. Either you believe or you don't believe."
    On the different offense: "This team has to play a little faster to win."
    On Ronnie Stewart's health: They ruled out a heart problem. It could be a stomach issue. He's out of the hospital now.
    On Linhart: "Linhart is perplexing me. He is struggling offensively."
    On Conyers' defense: "Jimmy is probably a better post defender than the 4 guys we got (power forwards McKnight and Milum)."
    Looking toward next season, when 10 of the 13 players will be freshmen and sophomores: "I'm just hoping they keep extending my contract. Most of the time, you don't win with freshmen and sophomores."
    On incoming recruits Humpty Hitchens and Alex Sullivan: "I like that unbelievable quickness at the guard spot, which we haven't had."

    Other interviews:
    Conyers talks about guarding Dionte Christmas: "That was tough. Move. Move. Move. Never sit still, chasing him off screens."
    Wood talks about his hair: "The kids love it."
    Wood talks about Rhodes Arena: "We take pride that when people come here, we win."
    Temple coach Fran Dunphy talks about the game: "I thought they (Akron) did a really good job offensively. I watched their tape, and they like to take teams away from what they want to do. Akron plays really good man-to-man defense."
