Penn vs. Bucknell Press Conference Quotes

Bucknell Head Coach Pat Flanery

“Penn was just quicker than us at every loose ball, quicker getting out, faster on the rebound and just better all night long. We still have to figure things out on this team. We fought in the Second half but it just wasn’t enough.

“We have a lot of pride in our program. I thought we’d be ready to go but we weren’t. We tried to switch is up in the second half, we battled the best we could but it just wasn’t good enough.”

Penn Head Coach Fran Dunphy

“Any Good team is looking for balance and scoring. We’d love to have five solid scorers but it’s nice to not have to depend on one player like Begley.”

“I thought we did a good job on McNaughter, we doubled at the right time, and we were as solid as we could possibly be in the first half.”

“Our offense keyed their offense. I thought our set defense pretty good overall.”

Penn sophomore forward Steve Danley

“It’s frustrating not to put teams away. We need to come out with defensive intensity and have the defense lead our offense. We need more consistency in our game.”

Penn sophomore Ibrahim Jaaber

“I think our guys really stepped up early, and Bucknell couldn’t really get things done.”

“For all teams, it is consistency where games are won.”

“I’m always looking for the opportunity to steal the ball, but my main goal is good defense.”
