Head Coach Steve Lavin

On the game against Seton Hall:
“The last four games had similar themes, stretches where we play brilliantly and then stretches where teams make runs on us. The opponent is always well-coached and the talent level of the BIG EAST is the best in America. There are many things we can improve upon after we watch the tape; both offensively and defensively. What I was most proud of was how we found a way, after Seton Hall went on a run, to go on a run of our own. We are trending in the right direction; and with that being said, these kids are very humble and realize we have a lot of work ahead of us.”

On the recent play of the Red Storm:
“The team needs to sustain and execute for the full 40 minutes and hopefully dictate our style of play on the opponent and control the tempo. The most challenging aspect for any team is to sustain the same level of execution for 40 minutes. How you respond and how you handle prosperity determines how successful you can be. Our youth differentiates us from a veteran team because we are still learning lessons on the court.”

Freshman forward JaKarr Sampson

On today’s game:
“Everyone comes out energetic and we are playing in The Garden today, so players are making shots. We don’t let [the opponent having] a lead get us down. We keep playing and that’s how we take the lead.”

Sophomore swingman Sir'Dominic Pointer

On D’Angelo Harrison’s performance:
“That’s just our captain stepping up. We’re blessed to have him in those kinds of tight istuations. He’s one of our best free throw shooters and we want to give him the ball, but we’re trying not to force the ball.”
