Head Coach Steve Lappas on the final stretch:
"We only had one time out with 15 minutes to go. It's not a great situation to be in when you're playing UConn. It was fortunate that we didn't have to use that time out."

Lappas on UConn:
"They're a great team and tonight was our night."

Lappas on traveling to Miami:
"Let's enjoy tonight. Unfortunately, we do have to fly to Miami tomorrow. We have to go down there and play and that's not going to be an easy one. This is a great lesson for our guys. Now you have to come back."

Lappas on Viggiano:
"We have a couple of upper classmen. He's one of them. If something showed up in the box score, I'm happy for him, but a lot of it didn't."

Lappas on the team:
"This team is going to be a very good team. We start four sophomores and a senior. We will see how they handle success."

Lappas on the team's play:
"I don't think we played that well. But we played great defensively and great on the glass, and that gave us a chance. It was a gutsy win."

Lappas on the A-10:
"Last year it was proven that we had a much better league than what most people thought. Anytime you have a league that has three or four teams in the NCAA Tournament, you have a good league."
