Duquesne head coach Danny Nee

"Last year when I saw Saint Joseph's I felt that `these guys were really good' that they were going to do something. I feel the same way about George Washington. They are a very, very good basketball team. I think nationally they are underrated. They have a chance to do something special the rest of the year. Their quickness up the floor, their intensity, their rebounding ... they've got a nice team. They have an opportunity to play very long into March.

"They played almost a perfect first half. In the first half, the knockout was delivered. Then they toyed with us in the second half. It is so tough to simulate a team with their talent in practice. I think our young players can learn a lot from a game like this."

Duquesne guard Bryant McAllister

"George Washington is the best team in our league. They play hard. They take you out of your sets. They get you out of whack. I think in the first half we gave up 10 points on transition layups. Against them you have to do everything right. They took us out of our sets and stopped ball reversal. A few guys were like `what do I do now?' But no one has their head down. We will use this game to learn."

Duquesne center Kieron Achara

"They were able to get us out of our plays. It was sort of like playground basketball. They are the most athletic team I've ever played against. They run the floor well and jump out of the gym."
