Duquesne head coach Danny Nee
"I was disappointed in our halfcourt offense when the game was on the line. We only had 13 turnovers, but a couple came at really critical times. We were only outrebounded by one, but I thought there were some we could have gotten to. I think we also allowed too many easy shots. I was pleased with our effort and chemistry. I like this team a lot. It has a lot of heart and works hard.
"I look at this weekend like we were in the classroom. I think with each game we improved. You just can't simulate what we experienced. We got to face a veteran team in Santa Clara, a running, pressing team in North Carolina A&T and an established team in New Mexico in an atmosphere that will help us prepare for the Atlantic 10. We got knocked to the floor in the first game against Santa Clara, then we got back up. I think we improved with each half we played."
