Appalachian St. 62
GW Coach Karl Hobbs
on Appalachian State's repeated comebacks in the 2nd half.
"We won by 14, and it's a terrific win. We're just trying to win basketball games, and are not concerned right now about the number of points we win by. At times, we tend to lose our focus. And today we played against a pretty good basketball team. It's a credit to them as opposed to what we were doing or not doing. I don't think we'll play another team as athletic as them."
"Our problem wasn't our offense. We allowed them to score, and more importantly, we allowed them to score quickly. They shot 55% in the 2nd half. If we could have held them to 40%, I would probably feel a little more comfortable on the bench coaching the game."
on having to face Appalachian State again next week
"I'm not so concerned about that. I'm only concerned about William & Mary. They're averaging 80 points a game, and if they continue to do that throughout the season, they'll be in the top 10 in the country for points scored. We'll watch some tape of Appalachian State, but mainly watch us because we need to correct some things, and then we'll get ready for William & Mary."
