GW Coach Karl Hobbs
"The thing I've learned this year is you take it one game at a time. I thought we displayed 40 minutes of maturity defensively. We wanted to settle the game down a little bit and run the clock. I didn't want our guys to take a shot 10 seconds into the possession even though a lane was there."
"We can control our effort on the defensive end. We didn't want to give up threes because these guys [Richmond] can get hot from three-point range."
"One of the things I was proud of today was that, when we got the lead, we continued to play defense."
Senior guard Chris Monroe:
"We executed, moved the ball well, and finished."
Junior guard Greg Collucci
[on hitting three three-point FGs]: "I didn't really change anything. I still believe I can shoot it. It's been difficult but you have to keep plugging away. I've been shooting them since I was a little kid."
