Xavier University Musketeers vs. IPFW Mastodons
Tuesday, November 16, 2010, Cintas Center, Cincinnati, Ohio
Xavier Guard Tu Holloway
"No one ever said it was going to be easy. We've got to be resilient and keep sticking with it. Right now, we're just trying to find ways to score."
Xavier Forward Jamel McLean
"It felt good just to be back out there with my team. Towards the end (of the game), I got into my groove."
"Jeff (Robinson) had seven (shot attempts), I had eight, Kenny Frease had eight attempts. Terrell (Holloway) and `Cheeks' (Mark Lyons) are passing the ball and we're finishing and passing it back out. Mark and Terrell, they're doing a great job running the team, even when they're tired."
Xavier Head Coach Chris Mack
"I am happy we won, but we have a ton of work ahead of us. Give credit to IPFW. They were hungry. They have some three-point shooters."
On Jamel McLean:
"For him to play 29 minutes, a lot of that was on adrenaline."
On Jeff Robinson:
"I'm really excited about Jeff. He continues to improve. One of the things that makes me proud as a coach was the way he wrestled for a loose ball in front of our bench."
On Tu Holloway:
"He makes plays down the stretch. There aren't many players that I've coached that love that moment more."
"We need to grow up in a hurry. We have more talent than IPFW. I don't think we are as talented as last year. Effort beats talent."
