This town isn't big enough for both of us.
It is disappointing. But we didn't shoot well (Saturday), and it was another close loss for us. We have lost four games by five points.
He doesn't play like a freshman. I'm proud of the way we gutted it out. Being down eight, nine,10, whatever, the crowd was into it, the band was going nuts, somehow, some way, we found a way to win. That's what you've got to do in playoff time.
We want the 2006 Urban Hot Spots campaign to focus on Toronto because it's Canada's largest city, and the problems surrounding trail access here are representative of the challenges faced in urban areas across the country.
We made great progress. The expectations were low. We had only one starter back. We were picked 10th. Nobody expected us to be here, so I'm really proud of our effort, but you're disappointed the way it ended up. Being up 49-45, you had a chance.
The big guy gives us problems. He gives A.J. Jackson problems, just his height. When A.J. struggles, we have a hard time. We can't just rely on jump shooting. That goes hot and cold.
It is our hope that the Toronto campaign will inspire a higher level of commitment to the trails from riders throughout the GTA. Toronto mountain bikers have an opportunity to set the stage for improved access across the province.
It was a game of runs. In essence, FDU had the last one -- and it was way too long. You just can't go dead for 10 minutes.
We made some dumb decisions in the end of the game, but overall, I was pleased with our defense. We didn't shoot well, but we did other things well.
We can't worry about this being our best home record or best conference record, or any of that. I am pleased we are 5-0 and not 0-5, but we just have to worry about the next game because we have 13 more games to play. Five wins doesn't get you into the (NCAA) Tournament. We can't get complacent.
It is a little harder now, because every coach knows about players, and there aren't many gems who get overlooked. But this game was a perfect opportunity to see what other players could do. It is nice to see these guys get rewarded with playing time.
