St. John's Head Coach Chris Mullin...

On Fordham:

"[Fordham] played great. They were obviously more experienced and stronger. They played with force, got all the 50/50 balls and made a lot of hustle plays. All the credit goes to Fordham."

On the play of Federico Mussini and Yankuba Sima:

"[Mussini and Sima] both had tough nights, but that happens to freshmen. These guys are young, inexperienced and going through a lot of first time experiences."

On the play of Kassoum Yakwe:

"I thought he was wonderful. [Kassoum had] great energy. For a young kid to get in there in his first night out, I thought he played a nice game. He's going to be really good. Once he gets a little more experience, he's going to find his way around just fine as you can see how athletic he is."

Senior Guard Felix Balamou...

On his thoughts on the game:

"It was a tough game on the road. [When you have] 19 turnovers in college basketball it's tough to win. We didn't play well, but we just have to go back to work and get ready for the next game."

On Fordham's ball pressure causing problems:

"We have been working on that [in practice]. It's just a matter of staying calm and going back to our principles. I felt like we were rushing."
