Villanova, Pa. - Temple-Villanova Post Game Quotes

Villanova Head Coach Jay Wright

Opening Statement
"That was a good game for the first half, they handled our press very well...but we didn't hang our heads and came out and played well in the second half..."

On Curtis' dunk setting the tone...
"The dunk is something for the fans. That is something that they enjoy...he sets the tone early in games when he is aggressive...but on that play it was good because he went up strong, and even if he misses it or gets fouled, he went strong..."

On the seniors...
"It's nice to have seniors, it really don't know how young guys will react when their shots are not falling. But with seniors, you know that they will not hang their head and keep getting after it."

Villanova Forward Curtis Sumpter

On the difference in your play from the first half to the second half...
"I wasn't worried about the shots I missed in the first half. I knew they would fall. I wanted to set the tone with my defense and get a steal."
