We looked like a lethargic road team and they looked like a home team hungry as hell to stay in first place.
Mason got us in a hurry and did a good job defensively. We went 2 of 14 in the first eight minutes and we couldn't get over that hump.
I want to sit down with him and get an idea of what he's thinking. I'm always optimistic he's coming until I hear him say no.
This is a group of guys who are very loyal, hardworking and trustworthy. They've hit the ground running. They've gotten a great start on recruiting and have been monitoring study hall and conducting individual workouts.
We're just waiting to see what happens. He's taking his time.
By turning the ball over 19 times, our scoring opportunities were seriously limited.
We weren't the better team today.
Having grown up in this area, I am very familiar with Duquesne and its tradition of success. I look forward to getting started.
For every study hall a player missed since the start of the semester, he owes me a mile in six minutes. Some of the guys owe 18 or 19 miles. It takes a lot more than just showing up to practice to wear the Duquesne University uniform. It takes a lot more work.
That's always a tough call. The guys at Northeastern have a great degree of loyalty to me, and I have a great loyalty to them.
UNC Wilmington did a good job of making it a half-court game, which prevented us from converting easy shots.
The absolute worst visit of any college athlete that I've ever been associated with. It was god-awful.
I'm proud of our basketball team. Without question, I think we saw, from both teams, some big-time performances out there with some very good players. All and all, I think we really executed well, especially down the stretch.
When he didn't want to do the 6 a.m. run that was a pretty good indicator he didn't want to play basketball any more at Duquesne University.
One of things I think he showed today was his tremendous moxie. As good as he is with the ball, he made the plays to help us win this basketball game without it.
I'm thrilled and excited and at the same time very proud to represent Duquesne University as the head basketball coach. Having grown up in this area, I am very familiar with Duquesne and its tradition of success.
I think all teams change throughout the year. You go through dips and peaks and valleys. Ours are more accentuated than most it seems. I think our basketball team has changed, and certainly James Madison has changed as well.
I'm excited at the way our team is developing in practice. I think for us, moving into the Colonial and beating a team that's in the top three is a real statement that our basketball team is getting better and that we're progressing.
When he didn't want to do the 6 a.m. run that was a good indicator he didn't want to play basketball for Duquesne. I assume he is going to ask for a transfer. I only want guys who want to be in the trenches with Duquesne. I don't want guys who don't want to be at Duquesne.
