Postgame quotes

By mrasor Published: March 13, 2008

Men's basketball
Dambrot -- "The last time we were here, it wasn't too pleasant."
"I thought our younger guys really played well. Brett McKnight and Roberts were really good."
"We did a good job of throwing it inside. Our guards did a good job of taking care of the basketball."
On Wood running the fast break: "I quit arguing with him."
"We didn't do anything different after they hit the 3's. The key was the job that we did on Watson. We started Ceddy on him to tire him. Nate took him later on. That length bothered him. In fairness to Watson, we've caught him tired both times. He played a lot of minutes last night."
WMU "beat us really badly. It was a little misleading because we came back and tried to trap. That's the worst loss we've ever had in the league. It will be a war. We have to match their physicality. They're one of the most physical teams in the country. We're going to have our hands full."
"Hopefully, we can get Woody to play games two and three. We have to be prepared to play whether he can go or not."
"Brett McKnight will lead us in scoring next year. He is an unbelievable talent. We're just scratching the surface. He can shoot it. He's strong. He can shoot on the blocks. He's a good ball-handler, passer. On top of that, he's an unbelievable person."
"It's a big challenge (for Wood to play three games in a row). He's going to try, though. I can guarantee that."
"This team has beaten the good teams and struggled against the average teams. It really doesn't matter (whether it's) Reitz, Quaintance. We have to do a good job on Kool. That's the key."
Linhart -- Watson "is a great player. I just tried to use my length to stay in front of him. I just tried to make it hard on him."
"Thankfully for us, they cooled down."
Wood -- "I just was going to play basketball today. If I see an angle, take it. We're at the point in the season where every game is your last game if you don't play well enough. I don't want to leave anything on the table."
"I can't express how good I felt when we were shooting those free throws (against Miami). One shot, and it was gone."
"I really felt good today. I was moving good. I sat out practice yesterday and watched."
"I'm a God-fearing man, and I pray a lot. We have a good trainer, Mike. They pushed me and were willing to put in the extra work."
"I like hitting the 3. A lot of people think I can't shoot it."
