ON PLAY OF SENIORS Brown, McGhee and Wanamaker

“Improvement never stops. There is always an opportunity to get better. There is no better example than the three seniors making the strides they have made during this season and I think it’s been pretty evident.”

 

BRAD WANAMAKER

ON TEAM PICKING UP SLACK FOR GIBBS (season-low eight points) 

“It shows that we have a lot of guys that can step up and contribute to our team. Everybody contributed in different ways.”

ON TEAM’S EARLY SLUMP

“Early on they had taken us out of our game. We started attacking their defense and we got stome good looks.”

ON CROWD’s ODDLY TIMED REACTIONS

“In the back of our mind, we knew some cheering was for the Steelers. Our task was Seton Hall.”

 GARY MCGHEE

 KEVIN WILLARD

ON HAZELL

“You don’t take two months off and stay at a very high level. He missed a lot of shots short tonight that he normally doesn’t miss.”

 ON PITT

“There are a lot of things that make them dangerous. In my opinion, they are one of the top two teams in the country. They have everybody that does their role and they do it very well.”

 ON WANAMAKER

“He’s a glue guy. He goes out and plays hard. He runs the offense. He does everything they ask him to do. He’s unselfish and he’s a very good defender. He doesn’t get enough credit for defense.”

ON PITT’s INSIDE PLAY 

“I don’t see who the players are. I just see Pitt. They are all pretty physical rebounders.”
