Northeastern Coach - Bill Coen: "I want to tell you how grateful we are to be invited to this tournament. We get the chance to compete against some of the very best competition in the country. I know our kids were extremely excited to play against a program such as Georgetown, which has such tremendous tradition and is an outstanding ball club."
"In the first half we were a little bit awe struck. We had some turnovers that we don't normally have and committed some fouls that put us in some rotation problems. Scott Eatherton and Reggie Spencer really battled back the second half, did a tremendous job on the boards and were able to carve out some space down low and get us some baskets when we really, really needed it."
"They just have to have confidence in themselves and confidence in their teammates. Our (the coaches) work is done in practice, and when they get to the games they've got to communicate themselves and compete out there. We did a great job of playing together and making the adjustments on the fly."
"Georgetown had 26 points at halftime on second-chance shots and turnovers. As soon as we started to eliminate the turnovers and get it into a half-court game it was good. We can't match them athlete for athlete, we have to take care of the basketball and take those easy baskets off the table."
Northeastern Forward Scott Eatherton: "We knew how big they were, we knew we had to use our quickness to get around them that was probably the biggest player I've ever played against. I got in foul trouble in the beginning of the game, so it was more of a team effort. Our guards helped us rebound and were right there pinching on their big guys in the bottom too."
Northeastern Forward Reggie Spencer: "We never had doubt. In the beginning, we might have played a little timid, but after we got the nerves out we were good to go."
Georgetown Coach John Thompson III: "This group quickly, quickly needs to figure out how to compete. We can sit and talk offensive systems, defensive systems, rotations, slides, everything - we have to compete. I thought we did a poor job of rolling up your sleeves and competing."
"I know what Bruce Weber's teams have traditionally done. We'll start to hone in on Kansas State now."
"The attempted zero threes in the second half. They decided to put their heads down and drive by us or throw it inside. When they drove by us, they got to the rim, and when they threw it inside, they scored."
"Losing the rebounding battle is something I'm very disappointed about, it's something that needs to change. That's part of competing - rebounding. We have to get better at that."
Georgetown Guard D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera: "I give them credit for the defense they played, but at the same time I feel like we in our offense we didn't attack in our offense like we needed to. We were taking unnecessary shots early in the shot clock. It was all about execution and obviously the rebounds were not in our favor today."
Georgetown Forward - Nate Lubick: "Give Northeastern all the credit in the world. We executed relatively well in the first half and then didn't do what we need to do to win games in the second half. That really hurt us."
