George Washington 62, Dayton 59
Feb. 26, 2005
Dayton Head Coach Brian Gregory
"This was obviously a disappointing way to lose the game. But it was a battle for 40 minutes between two very good, two very talented teams. You have to give them a lot of credit, but give us a lot of credit as well. Our team has battled all season long and that's why we were in this position today."
(ON SETTING UP THE LAST PLAY) "We wanted to get the ball to Trent Meacham because he was able to get to rim against them late in the game. We had Monty (Scott) on the back side as a second option. We executed the play well, but they made a great defensive play on us."
(ON THE SHOT) "I've seen it on TV before, but have never seen it first hand, and I'm not real happy to have seen it today."
(ON GW'S Mike Hall) "He's just a great player and he plays hard. He's not a great three-point shooter but he hit that big three late."
"Our young guys haven't played in a game like this yet and they battled hard with their backs against the wall."
"I thought we handled the ball well against their pressure. To have just nine turnovers and to hold them to seven offensive rebounds, we put ourselves in a great position to win the game against a great team."
George Washington Head Coach Karl Hobbs
(ON THE LAST-SECOND SHOT) "I knew it had the right arc, but I just couldn't tell if it was going in or not. I looked at the clock and I knew he had gotten it off in plenty of time. I told the officials `it's not even close.'"
"We lost the game Wednesday at Xavier and then we had two of our toughest practices Thursday and Friday. No one liked it. No one smiled. They got after it in practice, no one liked each other and it paid off today for us."
"You have to give Dayton a lot of credit because they
turned up the defensive pressure on us in the second
"This is our best win all season. This was even better than Michigan State and Maryland because this was in the most difficult of situations. Coming off the loss to Xavier, the enormity of this situation today and combined with the way we won it, this was a great win. And I hate to say it, but it's a shame someone had to lose this game."
"It is huge to come in here and win at Dayton. This is the fourth time I've been here and we've never been in a game, let alone have a chance to win one."
