GEORGIA TECH COACH Paul Hewitt

Thoughts on the game…
“I was really happy with how Iman Shumpert led us home. He was the guy who -when we did get a little unsettled–did a nice job of bringing us home. Although Glen [Rice, Jr.] put up 27 points I think he was a little careless with the ball, but I thought Iman did a really nice job of leading us to victory.”

On the game not being a pretty one…
“We still have to rebound the basketball better. Daniel Miller had five rebounds today and I know he is capable of doing better than that. At one time he had a baseline drive and instead of going strong to the rim he double clutched. He is a really good athlete, and I know his legs are a little tired right now, but earlier in the year he would have gone up and dunked that. He has to continue to have confidence in himself that he can go up and do those things.”

On if it’s okay that Iman Shumpert and Glen Rice, Jr. take 31 of the team’s 50 shots in the game…
“Yes, especially when you get seven out of 14 from Iman and eight out of 17 from Glenn, I mean we will take that. We have to get more contributions from other guys though. It doesn’t necessarily mean throwing the ball up on offense. We have to do a better job of getting to the offensive boards. We only had seven offensive rebounds tonight.”

On Glen Rice’s long three-point shot in the first half…
“I guess he takes after his dad. He can make them from deep. He hit 3-of-8 from the three-point line, so we will obviously take that and 8-of-10 from the foul line so he had a nice night shooting the basketball.”

On how to handle preparing for Duke on Sunday night…
“They really aren’t very complicated. They are talented and they are shooting the ball very well, but I think the number one thing is to defend the three-point line and build your game plan from there.”

CHATTANOOGA COACH JOHN SHULMAN

“We were out of sync. It looked like a game that was played February 16th with both teams trying to figure out why exactly we are playing this game February 16th. We moved the ball okay, we played a lot better than it looks. It looks bad because the ball didn’t go in the basket. We missed open look after open look and if the open shots go in, then our offense is flowing and we are a good team. But the ball didn’t go in the basket.”

“I’ll tell you who is really tough to guard. I mean, Glen Rice should be hugging [Iman] Shumpert because Shumpert is very difficult to guard and he makes them go. He gets everybody shots. If you don’t build a wall on him, he is going to get to the basket. He is a high level player, and he makes them go.”

“I thought we were two or three shots away from having a chance to win the game.”
