Richmond 63, George Washington 57
Atlantic 10 Basketball/Quote Sheet
The Robins Center, Richmond, VA/January 21, 2003
Richmond Head Coach Jerry Wainwright:
"I felt this was a very pivotal game for us. The night of the week, time change and fact that it was on TV probably didn't give us the same crowd we would have on another day. Our team just didn't have the same bounce."
"We had trouble scoring tonight. We adapted a little in the second half and opened Tony [Dobbins] up. He took advantage and was the difference maker."
"We cured some of our ills tonight ... played good defense, were good in transition. We're better offensively than we showed tonight. We'll need to be better down the stretch."
On the self-motivating nature of tonight's game: "I yelled, I hugged, I threatened and I made false promises. I tried everything I had. GW played us differently that most other teams, they extended the floor. We took advantage early but just didn't score."
On George Washington's Chris Monroe: "[Chris] Monroe really showed the value of a go-to guy. He is a warrior."
George Washington Head Coach Karl Hobbs
On differences from the first to second half: "I thought we settled down, Chris [Monroe] started to take over, and our defensive effort improved. Once we got the shots we wanted, we were OK."
"It's difficult to win to a basketball game when Richmond shoots 28 foul shots and we only took eight. Now, I know we were taking the ball to the basket aggressively. I don't want to take any credit from Richmond's game because they made them."
"We've played so many games on the road we're looking forward to a home game. We have the youngest team in the league. We are taking small steps, I have to have patience with this young team because they are getting better. Hopefully before the years is out we'll put it together."
Richmond Junior Tony Dobbins
On taking the game over: "Jeff and I were talking the other day about senior leadership and our obligations to the team. Tonight was my night, I hit my shots and my free throws. I know when I go home this summer I'm going to hear about it if I lose on my court."
