I don't know what more he could give us. The shame of it is he doesn't have a better supporting cast. He gets worn down.
He's a first-round pick. He's going to be playing in the NBA next year. He's a great player. But they have a lot of really good players.
Teary-eyed. It hurts, like ripping your heart out.
The doctors gave him some tests, and they are going to do more tests. I'm hoping he'll be back soon. But I have no idea. It's a medical thing.
I think Greg will find a good quality young coach. This is a very hard job, but not an impossible job.
I thought we competed. We came in and we wanted to play a certain way and for most of the night we did. Temple sometimes pushes you out of it.
I thought we competed. We wanted to play a certain way and for most of the game, we tried to play that way. We stayed and fought as well as we could. But the percentages catch up with you.
Our kids got up. St. Bonaventure put us on the mat and knocked us out. I kind of felt like they thought they had the game won then. We just came fighting our way back.
The last eight or nine minutes we got tired, no question about that. I thought we gave a good effort.
I thought we played well. We played hard. We gave a good effort. Pops was really unstoppable. He's a man-child. He's an NBA player, that's for sure.
I thought the kid played great.
We've had to move our roster around. There's a lot of playing time going to a lot of young players. What we're seeing is a lot of inconsistency.
We're not the team that I thought we had. But we have to play with what we have. We have to figure out a way to win. We have to have a lot of guys play better more of the time.
We've gotten a good effort every time we've gone out. We haven't just thrown in the towel. And a lot of younger guys are getting good experience.
It's not how many times you get knocked down it's how many times you get up.
I was scrambling. There were times when I was thinking we weren't going to get this done. We couldn't get the ribbon and the present tied.
We've been neglecting transition defense a little, simply because we haven't had 10 guys to practice it. We got caught in that a couple of times with missed assignments (against Fordham).
Now we have to get the swelling down. It's a matter of his tolerance.
That bothers me. I can understand Roberts scoring. He's a great player. But we were getting hurt by a lot of people.
The university was very fair to me. I appreciate what they've done for me. How they handled me in the past 48 hours convinces me they're going to get this program going in the right direction.
He's really struggling. We're just going to have to go back to the drawing board, watch film with him and keep his confidence up, but these are the two worst games he might have played since he's been at Duquesne. He got shut out tonight and a lot of them were, what I call, easy shots.
We couldn't play much worse. I would have to call it a disaster offensively.
I thought we did a nice job on Smith. But they have some excellent players. When someone is down, someone else steps up. That's what makes them good. That's why they won the game because other people stepped up.
We have to get stops. People are scoring too many points, transition baskets, seconds shots. You name it. All of the above.
It was a game of two halves. I thought we played really well in the first half and did the things we needed to do to win the ball game. In the second half, we did exactly the opposite. We didn't do anything well enough to win.
