Postgame Quotes

Head Coach Jim Crews

(Ref. His impresions of the game)
“There were a lot of emotions. We got off to an 11-0 lead which was great. The guys were really executing and doing a good job. Then it slowed down and we really got into it. I thought we were playing pretty good basketball. What hurt us in the first half were the careless turnovers, fouls and offensive rebounds. When they get offensive rebounds, they get threes. We were a little self-destructive with that. In the second half, we got down eight or nine points, but our guys just stayed with it. We were poised. I thought Rickey Royal did a great job. We were talking about that (people stepping up) before. Jimmy Sewell came down here one year and played 0.3 seconds, but knocked the ball away on an inbounds play and helped us win the game. Rickey, who hasn’t played much and I’m not sure how many minutes he played today, was outstanding. Certainly, Jarell is having a great, great year and you can’t say enough about him.”

(Ref.: Brown's last basket)
“We were trying to run some things and we ended up getting a clear out with Jarell with the ball, and he took advantage of it. We were looking for some things, obviously with Jarell, but Navy did a pretty good job and Jarell just made a play. (laughing) In other words, coaching had nothing to do with it.”

(Ref.: His team's ability to bounce back)
“If you keep fighting, then you have a chance. That doesn’t mean you’re going to win every time, but if you fight and keep getting better with executing the system, good things are going to happen. Any time you win, it’s great. These guys have invested so much so winning helps. These guys are very resilient young men.”

Senior Guard Jarell Brown
(Ref.: His last game at Navy)
“It’s a really good feeling. The last time out, you want to put everything you have into it.”

(Ref.: From going up 11 to down nine and then coming back)
“We were up 11 and feeling good. We started to get down and forgot what got us up by 11. We knew that turnovers and rebounding would get us back to where we needed to be. We told the guys to stay positive and rely on each other stick with it and fight for each other.”
