George Washington Colonials Post-Game Quotes
Head Coach Karl Hobbs
On the game:
"I felt that a large part of our offense was to establish our inside presence. Pops [Mensah-Bonsu] played an outstanding game and in order to have success we had to be able to score inside."
On the win
"We are a program that is trying to develop some type of consistency, in terms of winning. We have some teams in our conference that we are trying to be like. I am talking about some teams that have pretty much been averaging twenty plus wins over the past three years. Obviously this is a tremendous win for our program."
On outrebounding Michigan St.
"Going into the game we knew we had to defend. They are a tremendous scoring basketball team. The other thing is they have been traditionally in the top 10 in the country in rebounding. The big emphasis for us was to not allow them to get second shots. We really thought that was going to be the key to the game."
On his play
"I knew coming out that if I started out very aggressive my teammates were going to take on that type of tempo. If we stayed aggressive I knew we were going to have a good chance to win the game."
On the win
"Obviously this was a very big win. This is only the first step we have a lot of basketball left to play and we still have to take it one game at a time. It's good that we won today but we still have another big challenge ahead of us tomorrow."
Michigan State Spartans Post-Game Quotes
Head Coach Tom Izzo
On the team's effort
"I'm extremely disappointed, to say the least, with the way we played. The way we handled things mentally as well as physically was embarrassing. I thought [George Washington] played harder and they wanted it more and I'm embarrassed to say that. It's ridiculous that a veteran team like ours would play with such little intelligence."
"He's a great athlete. He's a very hungry post player, plays very hard. Paul Davis just didn't do the job on him. They did a great job going to him."
