QUOTES & NOTES – San Diego State 73, Georgetown 56

Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing – “We made a big run in the second half, cut it to four points, but then we couldn’t make any shots after that. They got a few run-outs, fast-break points and we just didn’t have enough. If we want to make shots, we need to make good passes and we only had six assists tonight. If we want to beat teams like this, we need to have more than six assists.” (On guard Aminu Mohammed) “I expect Aminu to be one of our best players, he’s going to have a great career here in Georgetown. But I look at everything as a whole and we didn’t play particularly well tonight, we only scored 56 points. I’m happy with his effort tonight, but as a team and as a group, we didn’t play the way that I would have liked us to play.” (On San Diego) “They are a very good team and are well-coached. They did what they do. They play great defense, they limit you to one shot and they’re relentless on the boards. That’s what they hang their hat on. Tonight they shot 7-16 for three, but at the end of the day, it’s the fast-break points. We gave up 17 fast-break points and that hurts.” (On the low three-point shot efficiency). “They got to our shooters. They didn’t give us any breathing space, we got shots but we didn’t make them. They made everything tough for us. One of the things we need to keep working on is when we penetrate, we got to be able to find our shooters. We got to be able to read where the defense is and make the right play.”
