Chris McCullough: "It was an intense battle. A good game. I was running down the hallway screaming (after they won)."
Ron Patterson: "It was a great win. I felt like they played with a lot more energy this game than the others in the past versus Georgetown. I was very excited they finally beat Georgetown when it really counted."
Tyler Roberson: "I think it's great that they were able to beat Georgetown after losing to them twice."
