Post-game comments from Georgia Tech players following the team’s 88-56 loss in the NIT final to TCU in New York’s Madison Square Garden.
“Seems like they sent all five to the glass. They were real physical. They played hard and they came up with some loose balls. I think both teams played hard. But they found a way to get to the balls.”
“We would never want our season to end this way, but I don’t think it takes anything away from what we did this y ear. TCU played a great game. I think that we played till the last buzzer.”
“We just didn’t get the job done. So, obviously, it’s not a great feeling. We’ve just got to move on and fight for another year.”
“Driving in the lane, they made it hard for all of us, to be honest. We couldn’t penetrate inside. Clogged it up and they made it hard to kick the ball out and they forced a lot of turnovers.”
On getting in foul trouble
“That was definitely their game plan. I think they pretty much threw it into the post for the first 10 possessions, so I guess props to them for doing that. I wasn’t able to stay out of foul trouble. That always throws you out of rhythm, both offensively and defensively because I can’t do what I normally do.”
