Sacred Heart vs. Saint Francis (PA) Post Game Quotes
Head Coach Ed Swanson
Opening Statement - "I take my hat off to Saint Francis. They were better prepared and came out with a lot of energy. The dictated the tempo of today's game right from the opening tip and their first possession. They took it right to us and we just didn't respond."
On overcoming early mistakes - "I thought we found some rhythm and got it going some. But when you're on the road, you need to get off to a good start and we were much too careless with the basketball tonight."
On SFPA's rebounding advantage - "They really pounded the glass. Unfortunately for us, no one stepped up and complimented Jasmine (14 rebounds) rebounding the basketball. Bottom line, they played with a higher level of intensity today."
On whether the Pioneers were looking past Saturday's game to Monday night's match-up at Robert Morris - "Absolutely not. Absolutely not. Look at the games we have played of late. We've had tough, tight games with Monmouth, FDU. We knew we would be in for a fight here."
