Georgia Head Coach Andy Landers

“I think we played better than Tech in the second half. We rebounded very well in the second half and shot free throws well coming down the stretch. We probably shouldn’t have made all of those turnovers, but we fought through those mistakes.”

“I think that this team really showed tremendous courage. Tech would be ahead by six or seven and we would come back and make it an even game. Then they would get another lead, but we would come right back. I don’t think there was any point in this game that we really felt like we were in trouble.”

“I’m just thankful that we were ahead early, because it is really hard to be fighting back the entire forty minutes.”

Georgia Tech Head Coach MaChelle Joseph

“It was a battle out there; there’s no doubt about it. I give both teams credit. I think both teams played their hearts out out there. I’m very proud of my team and the way they competed. We had some freshmen step up big in a big game and do some great things out there.”

“We said in the locker room after the game that we never get too high over a win or too low over a loss, and we’re going to bounce back high from this. This is going to be a great learning experience for us. We’re just very optimistic after seeing the way we played today. If we get all of our cylinders clicking at the same time we’re going to be pretty special down the road.”

“We settled for jump shots I thought. They backed off of us and we settled for some jumpers instead of putting the ball on the floor and driving it to the rim at crucial times. The fact that we got 70 shots at the basket shows we had every opportunity. We missed a lot of wide-open shots we don’t normally miss. We missed layups and free throws. We missed seven free throws and lost by seven points. We talk about that every day. We have to make layups and free throws on the road if we want to win, and we didn’t do the job there today. That’s something we’ll go back to Atlanta and we’ll work on.”
