DU-SBU Postgame Quotes

Recap |  Box Score |  Notes

Duquesne head coach Danny Nee

"We didn't panic, we just stayed with our game plan. We were very cohesive and didn't go `negative' in any way mentally or physically. We played smart in the second half. We pounded it into [Kieron] Achara and got to the free throw line. I thought Bryant McAllister showed a lot of heart in the second half. He was getting fouled and going to the line. He got stronger and stronger as the half went on. Jack Higgins carried us in the first half with his offensive thrust."

Duquesne center Kieron Achara

"Basketball is a game of runs. Earlier this season we worried about scoring when we were down. Now the focus is more on defense and getting stops. I was focused on playing hard. I knew I had a bad game against Rhode Island (six points in 27 minutes). I just went out and played as hard as I can play."

Duquesne guard Jack Higgins

"Coming into this game, I just wanted to keep a positive mindset. Sitting out (Higgins missed three games with pneumonia) was hurtful. I had a lot of time to think. I got a clear view of what I want to do and how I want to perform. This is a new year and a new Jack Higgins. I'm just trying to finish the season and play hard."
