Duquesne head coach Danny Nee:
"I thought the difference was 3-point shooting. We make a couple more and I'm sitting here with a happy face. I thought we played good defense and rebounded well. We got stops but couldn't turn them into points on the other end. We played smart. We just have some things to clean up.
I totally respect our effort. We put it on the line. Keith Gayden messed up his ankle and was on crutches earlier today, but he came out like a warrior."
Duquesne guard Bryant McAllister:
"We held them scoreless for over six minutes in the second half. We got stops, but didn't score. We are going to stay positive. We played as a team, and that was a key for us. Keith [Gayden] is my roommate and he kept telling me all day `I'm going to play.' He played like a warrior."
Duquesne center Kieron Achara:
"Keith's a warrior. He's a hustle player. He's very aggressive. The way he walks is even aggressive."
