Duquesne head coach Danny Nee
"Its great to get the 400th win, but it feels better to get our first [this season]. I felt the team played much better than we did against Santa Clara. North Carolina A&T is the kind of team that can make a team look bad with their pressure and 3-point shooting. We knew they would take a lot of quick `three's' so we changed defenses a lot against them. We played a lot of men. Getting the younger kids playing time is real important. I really liked the way the kids gave up the ball. We had an excellent assist-to-field goal ratio.
"Playing New Mexico will be a lot like playing Dayton or Xavier on the road. I expect it to be a great atmosphere. Hopefully we'll be able to raise our level of play."
