Sunday March 19, 2006 George Washington Quotes
GW Head Coach Joe McKeown: "I would like to congratulate Old Dominion and Wendy Larry for running a nice program, and a hard nosed team. They kept fighting, and they really made a run on us. I thought our kids did a great job of handling that, and that was the difference in the game. I would like to congratulate Old Dominion and their fans, their really knowledgable and tremendous basketball fans. When you have Kim Beck on your team, you feel pretty good."
On GW's performance overall
Jessica Simmonds, Senior Forward: "I think that our team did a great job today. We had a lot of composure, a lot of heart, and we competed to the best of our ability. They just played great."
On Lawrence coming off the bench
Sarah Jo Lawrence, Sophomore Guard: "I've pretty much been the sixth man all year, so I've taken my role and embraced it. Coming off the bench and making an impact on the game is something that is what I like to do. Obviously it fits me."
On ODU home court advantage:
Lawrence: "When we first came out, we heard them cheering for ODU when we came out for the Tennessee game. So we knew the crowd would be really into it, and we just used that as fire to come out and perform."
On her career-high assist performance:
Kim Beck, Sophomore Guard: "I thought everyone was passing the ball very well. Everyone was catching it and putting it in the basket."
On team's gameplan:
Coach McKeown: "I thought that we were due for a game offensively. It's no secret that we struggled to score the last few weeks, it just helped us that we could hit a couple of shots early. To have six players in double figures, that would be an intersquad game normally. Offensively, I just thought we did a great job. Everybody found Kim, and she got the ball to the right people in the right spots. In the first half, our size worked for us inside a little bit, and then because of rebounds we worked well in transition, and got a lot of easy baskets off of that. In the second half, I thought ODU played much better. To just have six people in double figures is a fantasy to me."
