TULSA-MARSHALL POST-GAME QUOTES
March 1, 2008
Tulsa Coach Doug Wojcik Quotes
"Sam Mitchell gave us a lift when Marshall cut the lead. He did a nice job, and going 7-for-7 from the line is very impressive. It shows how much he was concentrating on what he needed to do. Overall it was a very good performance for our team."
Besides that guys were shooting well, what goes into a performance where you shoot 62 percent?
Did the second-half performance carry over from the Memphis game into this game?
"The other guy I thought played under control was Glenn Andrews It's important for his growth to do that."
On the match-ups:
"I really believe that the two best young post players in the league, at least performance-wise are Tyler Wilkerson of Marshall and Jerome Jordan. Tyler has a little more offensive than Jerome, and Jerome has a little bit more of defensive presence. We really keyed on Tyler Wilkerson tonight. He was the hottest player in the league. He's been averaging 16 points a game in their last five games, and we were able to cut that in half to eight. I thought we did a nice job there."
"Baines had a nice first half, and that's a tough match-up for us. I think too that Markel Humphrey is an all-conference player because he's a multi-skilled kid. He can step out and shoot the three, he can take you off the dribble and he can post you up."
