HEAD COACH JEFF CAPEL

"We were fortunate to get the win. In tournament play, you just want to survive and advance. Tonight, we survived. It’s not about being pretty, it’s about getting the job done, and we were fortunate to get it done tonight."

On William & Mary big men

"They are tough to defend for us, because we don’t have the size inside. We have trouble with teams with big bodies, and (Adam) Duggins hurt us in that stretch."

Momentum into overtime

"Anytime you’re down at the end and scored to send the game into overtime, you’ve got energy. We got renewed life there and were fortunate to be able to take advantage of it."

Defense in overtime

"We took two charges late, and I was glad to see we were disciplined enough to do that."

W&M HEAD COACH RICK BOYAGES:

"It was just a great college basketball game. It was worth the price of admission. I thought everybody in the coliseum had an opportunity to see a great college basketball game.

"I was very proud of our kids. It was kind of the way the whole season went. Our kids really gutted it out. We don’t have much of a history in this conference or this tournament, so this is a start. We took a big step today.

"My hat’s off to ODU. They played great. Give Jeff’s kids all the credit in the world. We just tried to play great team defense. They made some open three’s, but got tired in the second half and missed some. There was a lot of jockeying between Jeff and myself.

On a last-second call late in regulation:

"About 4,000 people in the coliseum saw what happened. Maybe we should take a survey. I just thought it was a nice play by Cody (Carbaugh). I really have no comment. It would take away from Jeff and ODU. At this point, it’s not worth dealing with."

SENIOR GUARD JIM MORAN:

"We just missed shots today. Everything felt good. I had a couple rim out. The shots just weren’t falling today."
