Villanova, Pa. - Quotes taken from the post-game press conference following the Wildcats' 70-61 win over Navy on Saturday...
Coach Wright Opening Statement
"I thought we played against a very well-coached and scrappy team tonight...Billy (Lange) had their team really well prepared tonight..."
Each time they made a run, it seemed like you guys would have a response...
"We have good leadership on this team...at times during their runs, Mike (Nardi) and Dante (Cunningham) just went out and made plays for us."
How will a close game like this help you down the road?
"We need to be in close games like that...We need to go through that as a team. I would have liked to have played better, but we will learn a lot from a game like this."
Senior guard Mike Nardi
On finally being able to play a home game this season
"We love playing here at the Pavilion and at the Wachovia Center...it was exciting to finally be back here and playing here for the first time this season."
