Recap| Box Score

Old Dominion Head Coach Blaine Taylor:

"In recent history, beating George Mason was something that didn't happen often. And winning is something the players feel good about. "

"Tonight they made some runs at us and I think we handled that very well. I thought our guys took the court today with good confidence and energy."

On Isaiah Hunter:

"Isaiah really showed the team tonight. We never questioned Isaiah and everyday has not been a bowl of cherries, but its getting better. He did some great things on the court tonight besides shooting the ball. "

Old Dominion freshman guard Isaiah Hunter:

"I knew I had to step up tonight without John (Waller). Coach (Kenny) Gattison told me to calm down and let the game come to me and that's what I did. I've been feeling good about my shot all week during practice."

George Mason Head Coach Jim Larranaga:

"Without the five guards we started with at the beginning of the year, it's pretty hard to do what we want. Guard play affects everything. We did a little better job at the free throw line in the second half, but without guard play it has been very difficult."

"There are a lot of constant adjustments and we're playing with only half a deck."

"We can hardly practice. We just don't have the numbers to practice or prepare for each game. Its been rough on our guys."
