NC State-Georgia Tech Coaches Quotes
NC State coach Jim Valvano
“We are hitting a stretch where we nee to play well and put it all together. It was a good win for us tonight. We showed poise when we had to.
“We slanted our defense to stop Price in the second half. He’s not very big, but he is very quick. He got free one time in the second half and hit a 3-pointer. He still got 17 points in the second half, so you see how effective he really is."
Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins
“We will always keep fighting back. We have pride in our program. With a few breaks and a couple of 3-point goals, it might have been a different story. We needed a great game, but didn’t get it tonight.
“Mark Price is a fantastic player, but you can’t get a great game for just one player in this league and expect to win. He needed some help. We’ve got some young players and they are getting better each week.”
