I loved playing there. I bleed the blue. From a coaching standpoint having to play the No. 2 ranked team on the road is a daunting task. ... I'm excited about the opportunity. I tell these guys all the time these are great opportunities for Stony Brook.

First of all, it's great to be back here in D.C. and all the good people here at George Washington. As you could tell it was a difficult game.

We played well at times, but our margin for error is so small.

We're a team that needs a lot of things to go right for us to win. We're improving. Unfortunately, our record doesn't indicate that.

His focus wasn't on what is important. Forget about the NBA, he needs to get his degree.

If we're 9-for-10 from the line instead of 4-for-10, the game doesn't come down to a final jump shot. We spend hours shooting free throws in practice but we can't make them in games.

Their big guy was blocking shots and he did a nice job of hanging around and making us change our shots a bit.

We're the worst free throw shooting team in the conference. We missed six of eight down the stretch and you can't afford to do that on the road.

When you play the No. 2 team in the country and you give them 25 offensive rebounds, it's going to be a long night.
