Dayton Head Coach Oliver Purnell "This was a huge win for our ball club tonight. We didn't want to go 0-2 in the league at home. This was a critical win. We were ready emotionally and mentally. This was important coming off an emotional loss to Xavier on Saturday. GW came in here 2-0. They have been playing well. We started making some shots late in the first half and broke the game open."
"Our wings were very active and aggressive tonight. Ramod (Marshall) and Brooks (Hall) knocked down some shots and did a great job on Chris Monroe. This was probably the best all-around game he has played for us."
"It was important that we establish our inside game because that played to our advantage. GW gets up and down the floor as quickly as anybody. They score a lot in transition. We gave up maybe three 3's in the first half, but overall we did a good job."
"We'd like to get another winning streak going. We're 1-1 and plan to be in the thick of the conference race. You have to go on the road some in conference play. We want to go into Duquesne the same way we did tonight."
George Washington Head Coach Karl Hobbs "This is an uncharacteristic game for us. Somewhere along the line we lost our collective will to play team basketball."
"They came in prepared to win a basketball game. We
came in to play for ourselves and score 20 points."
