Game One Quotes

#9 Wofford 64, #8 College of Charleston 53

Wofford

Head Coach Edgar Farmer

 

On Defense

"Our kids played with incredible energy on the defensive end. We had to get consecutive stops because we were getting good shots in the first half. We just weren't making them, we just weren't knocking them down. We did a great job on the defensive glass. We knew College of Charleston was going to make a run, but we weathered their run and we finished strong."

 

On Team's Performance

"I believed in our players, I knew if we kept setting screens and moving the basketball we'd get those shots and start knocking them down. I have to give credit to our players and our staff. We played with great energy and great passion. I am very proud of our basketball team."

 

On Facing #1 Davidson

"I feel that if we play for 40 minutes and play hard with this same type of energy and execution, I like our chances. We're excited to advance in the tourney."

 

College of Charleston

Head Coach Nancy Wilson

"Both teams played very hard today. I really thought this would be a game that came down to the wire, since we had spurts where we were in control, then they had spurts where they were in control. I am very proud of this team; I have been all year long. Our staff loves them and we just wish them the very best in the future."

On Latisha Harris' ejection:

"The momentum switched because they got excited she was out of the game. She has been a major factor in us beating them, but I thought we came back and had a spurt of momentum again. They were just able to maintain the lead."

Locker Room after the game:

"We told the team that we loved them and we were proud of them. They have made this year a real joy."
