GW-Texas Men,s Basketball Post Game Quotes
Texas 88, George Washington 72
GEORGE WASHINGTON HEAD COACH Karl Hobbs
On Greg Collucci
"Greg Collucci is a guy that we put in during certain situations. He plays well against the zone, and we can always count on him when teams, such as Texas, play zone.
On Texas' play
"P.J. Tucker dominated the game tonight. He is the most surprising player in the country. It was Royal Ivey that we were initially most concerned with, because he is the heart and soul of the team.
TEXAS HEAD COACH RICK BARNES
On the Longhorns, overall performance
"After the game against Duke, we knew we were embarrassed. That was a tough week for our guys especially since they were coming off exams and the freshman were taking their first exams. It was a hard week, but we have a group of guys that really care about their performance and we have room to get better.
On P.J.,s first career start
"We haven,t really gotten a good start and we knew that George Washington would press against us. We felt that we could get the ball to P.J. and he did a great job with it tonight. He made a lot of really good decisions and he earned the start. He has been the most consistent player and it became a pretty simple decision to give him the start.
BRIAN BODDICKER, SR., F
On the game tonight
"P.J. (Tucker) played really big tonight. We knew what we were looking for and we executed our plays. They ran a lot of zone against us and it became a matter of us finding an open man. We,ve been a defensive minded team and we went back to that tonight.
P.J. TUCKER , FR., C
On tonight,s win
"Tonight, coach told us to come out and show them what we can really do and we did that. Everyone really picked up the intensity. My teammates got me the ball a lot tonight.
