No. 2 Pitt holds off Rutgers, post-game quotes

 

Here is the early game story on Pitt and some post-game quotes

*** Pitt survives Rutgers, 65-62, to dodge upset-riddled day

Jamie Dixon

On Gibbs’ game-high 24 points

“I thought he did a good job waiting for shots and getting shots. I think that was key, getting a good one.”

Ashton Gibbs

On 3-pointer with 58 seconds left  

“It was a deep shot, but I know the shot clock was running down, so I had to take it. I was confident in it, so it went in.”

On playing 25 minutes from home  

“It felt good with a lot of my family and friends in the stands, but the main thing is we got the win.”

On free-throw shooting, going 28 for 35

“It definitely was a key. Coach Dixon has really been stressing it, especially in practice.”

On life in the Big East

“Whether you are home or away, you’ve got to come to play whether it’s the worst team or the best team in the Big East. Everybody’s players take it personal because everyone knows each other.”

 Gary McGhee

 On Rutgers staying close

“We expected them to give us their best shot.”

 On Gibbs in first half

“Ashton did a really good job of being aggressive. He helped us stay in the game and go into halftime only down one when they (Rutgers) played really good in the first half.”

Rutgers coach Mike Rice

On Gibbs and big 3-pointer 

“That’s why he’s a first-team all-Big East player. We were a little slow getting out when he threw a dagger in“
