Game Quotes

Xavier Players

Jordan Crawford

“I was trying to still be aggressive. When you play not to lose you start to make dumb decisions.”

On Kenny Frease

“He did a good job. We worked on them trapping the post. Those guys [Kenny Frease and Jason Love] had zero turnovers.”


Dante Jackson

“Protect home court! Winning two games on the road was great, but we just wanted to come home and protect home court. I think our ability to pressure the ball, that’s what really separated us from them in the first half.”


Charlotte Head Coach Bobby Lutz

“We just weren’t able to execute as well as Xavier. They were more efficient at scoring the ball. We got too far behind. To their credit they did what they had to do to win.”

“We want to go inside. Obviously, Xavier knows that – they’re well coached. I thought we settled for some three-pointers in the first half. You have to credit their defense [for] not allowing the easy entry into the post.”


Xavier Head Coach Chris Mack

“Our kids were certainly ready. I have a lot of respect for Charlotte. They’re a different team from last year. Particularly, Dante Jackson had one of his best games of the year.”

On Andrew Taylor

“’A-Tay’ has really added a lot to our team. He has solidified himself as a guy that I can count and that our team can count on – 6-for-6 from the foul line.”

“Coming into the game we thought Charlotte was as dangerous a three-point shooting team as we’ve played. Our guys understood that going in and made their looks tough early on.”
