ECU Coach Ricky Stokes
"We got off to a good start, but it was a disappointing loss. I thought we didn't do some things necessary to win games. We knew it was going to be a physical game, and we felt they were going to push it inside to Gomez and Louisme. Gomez had 12, Louisme had 4, so I think we did a good job. We also wanted to limit the other guys' points, but we weren't able to do that. Donnie Stith had a great night rebounding and shooting."
"We had a couple of bright spots. One of the things we want to continue to do is establish an inside presence. We tried to put some plays in, and I'm glad to see John score. We were able to get the ball into him. Brandon Evans gave us a nice spark. I liked his defensive play. We're glad that Courtney was able to come back after the spill he took. We don't need to lose anybody else."
Freshman Forward John Fields
"We really did not execute at times. We were also a little careless with the basketball, especially at the end of the shot clock."
"It is hard losing. In high school I maybe lost four or five games in two years. I think with our coaching staff and our young guys, we can take this program to new heights."
Freshman Guard Brandon Evans
"It is kind of hard right now because I am used to winning championships as I did in high school."
"We have to have faith in our coaching staff like they have faith in us. Our coaches emphasize having a positive mindset."
