Georgia Tech Head Coach Brian Gregory

On tonight’s performance:

“We missed a lot of shots around the basket. We have to do a better job at that. Daniel Miller only had two shots during the game. That’s my fault. That’s not anybody’s fault other than mine. If those guards aren’t throwing him the ball, we’re going to have a hard time winning games. If you look, Robert Carter’s six misses were all quality shots. Marcus’ missed shots around the basket were probably good shots as well. Kammeon was one for four. You have to make some of those shots. When you don’t, it puts a lot of pressure on your defense.”

On two losses:

“I think the common theme is that we have to figure out as a team how we’re going to be successful and win games. We were a very good defensive team last year. We have a lot of those pieces back and we’re not right now. Our defense could hold us in games when we weren’t as good on offense. Now we’re supposed to be better on offense, but at the same time, we have some guys that aren’t playing as well offensively. That’s a key. You play these games early to figure out where you are. For me, the biggest theme is we’re not as quite as good as our guys think we are. We need to play with unbelievable effort and energy every single play. That’s something that a game like this will get across.”

On Trae Golden:

“Tonight was a night he could have had ten assists instead of only five. I think as he gets a better feel for those situations, we’ll become a better offensive team. For the most part, he’s been a positive addition for us.”


Ole Miss Head Coach Andy Kennedy

On the overall effort of Ole Miss:

 

“I thought our effort was outstanding.  I thought our guys were locked in.  It’s our biggest challenge to date.”

 

“I liked our team’s fight.  We exuded toughness early.  We wanted to be aggressive.  I thought we attacked the game right from that jump and for that I was proud.”

 

“I was anxious to see how we would perform against a high level team and I was really pleased with the way we started the game, locked in playing extremely hard.   We weren’t as efficient as we would have hoped, but overall I was really pleased with the effort.”

 

On the feel of the game:

 

“I think the feel in (Barclays Center) is an NCAA Tournament feel.”

 

“It’s just two teams playing and it’s the end of November.  We have no idea what our identity is.  We are trying to figure out who we are.  In games like this where you challenge yourself against big, strong, fast guys from high level programs you learn a lot about yourself.  Our objective is that when we leave Sunday that we have a much better idea as to who we are.”

 

On Marshall Henderson development:

 

“He is a work in progress.”
