East Carolina head coach Mack McCarthy
"The key to the game was turnovers. We just turned the ball over too many times. We equalized it a little bit by playing aggressively, and making them turnover the ball some."
"Richmond plays such an unusual defense. You don't get the usual shot you get out of your offense, whether you run man, or zone offense, it doesn't really matter. They make you make plays, which was reflected through our shooting percentage. I just didn't count on the turnover situation."
"Defensively it took us a little while to adjust to how they were playing, even though we knew what they were going to do. We had great preparation, a great scouting report, but when it is live, it is a whole other deal."
"They are very much a rhythm based offense, and we got them out of their rhythm by changing the defenses, pressing a little bit and playing a little bit of zone, which I thought was very successful."
"We did battle back, we really played hard and played together. I saw a lot of good things, but I am very disappointed with the lost."
Getting back in the lead in the second half:
Sophomore Gabe Blair
"We should have executed more on offense and defense than we did. We've got to do it like we're supposed to."
"I took what they gave me. I took the shots that were open and I didn't force anything."
