Duquesne head coach Danny Nee: "This was an important game for the future of our program. It was a matter of us going "up" or "down." I think our kids really hung in there and battled. Wayne Smith is our horse. He didn't shoot particularly well today (6-15), but he did hit 13-of-13 from the line and pull down 11 rebounds. I think Kevin Forney has been remarkable. He's been impressive with his scoring, defense and rebounding. He just continues to get better."
Duquesne forward Wayne Smith: "We played a box-and-one on him [Chris Monroe] in the second half and Kevin [Forney] kept his touches down." On teammate Kevin Forney: "I've been calling him "The Finisher" the last couple of days. He's been finishing everything."
GW coach Karl Hobbs: "You have to give Duquesne a tremendous amount of
credit. We made a run and they never lost their poise. They also showed a
terrific amount of class at the end."
