Recap| Box Score

Old Dominion Head Coach Blaine Taylor

"We got two in a row. It's never easy, we had to make a lot of adjustments in the first half. We didn't have things in doubt much during the stretch. I think our seniors led, I thought our bench led by their leader Troy Nance."

"Every conference game has a side story. I told our team 'Let's go for it, let's go forward. More positive, than negative.'"

"Both Wright and Marsh are defending and rebounding better and playing with a better mindset. They are concentrating on really good things and that's better for us."

"In the first half Jamaal (Gildchrist) played very well but we challenged our points guard (Troy) Nance and (Isaiah) Hunter to stop them. Troy (Nance) has worked really hard to improve himself defensively."

"We've been very good at home. I think we have a very good sense of competing."

Old Dominion senior forward Richardo Marsh

On Last Season Against Towson:

"We definitely remember it. Stuff like that you don't forget, but it made us play hard at home."

"I have to give all credit to my teammates and my coaches for giving me the confidence to try to make plays and keep a positive mindset. I definitely think the game slowed down a lot for me and having confidence in myself and my teammates has helped me play."

Towson Head Coach Michael Hunt

"Old Dominion has momentum and they've been close in a lot of games. Richardo Marsh and Rasheed Wright are the best tag-team in the CAA in my opinion. They played well like I predicted unfortunately."

"We're a young group. I hope we don't get discouraged, but we're in it for the long run."

"Wright and Marsh have shown their leadership. All respect to them with helping their team. We didn't execute and Marsh and Wright did that for ODU."
