George Washington head coach Karl Hobbs
On what winning the BB&T means to the team:
"The measuring stick for this basketball team will be at the end of the day, which means that [Selection] Sunday, [we need to be] in a room somewhere sitting around waiting for our name to be called. That's our goal. That's our focus. We took a step further to our goal, we took a step further to our dream, and that's what we're focusing on."
On limiting GW turnovers:
"That was the key to the game, we felt. If we didn't turn the ball over, we'd have an opportunity to win the game. Maryland is probably the best team in the country at stealing the ball and then converting. They're terrific doing that. We knew that we had to play with some composure, and I thought TJ and Carl played a superb game, along with Omar Williams, of controlling tempo, particularly in the second half."
On the atmosphere:
"It truly was a terrific basketball game. The atmosphere was fantastic. It was a fun basketball game. I just wish I could have been sitting in the stands so I could have enjoyed it."
Maryland head coach Gary Williams
On the tough loss:
"That was a good college basketball game. GW really played hard and did some good things. When we finally got it going in the second half, we had a couple of opportunities to maybe take over the game, but GW always seemed to come up with the big plays. GW played so hard. They made some things happen. They really did a good job."
On the state of the team:
"We cant be a three point shooting team first. We have to go inside out with our offense. We haven't learned that yet and it hurts us in big games like [against] a Wisconsin or a George Washington. The key thing for us is to get better. We're close. We're not that far away. We're good enough that if we get better in a couple of areas, we'll be ok. We've got some time now so hopefully we'll do a good job in practice."
On the strong GW first half:
"We didn't play hard enough in the first half. GW is too aggressive with the ball. If you don't play hard, they're going to get good looks, drives, lay ups. The intensity level, GW had it more than us in the first half. That had a lot to do with them shooting better than us."
