Rider 79
Binghamton 65
December 2, 2006, Vestal, N.Y. (Events Center)

Head Coach Al Walker

On the game:

"We didn't play as well defensively as we could have. With the loss of Ian Milne due to illness and then when Duane James went down we were a little short on the bench."

On Rider's play:
"They are a great shooting team and made some outstanding shots. The run of 3 three-pointers in a row in the second half really hurt us."

Mike Gordon, Junior Guard

On the second half:
"We slowed down and relaxed a little bit in the second half which allowed Rider to go on a big run. Good teams are able to make runs when they need them and that's what Rider did. They did a great job of hitting shots when they needed them."


Duane James, Senior Forward

On his second half injury:

"I went up for a rebound and caught an elbow above my eye. The training staff did a great job of getting me stitched up and I was able to get back in the game."

On the team's play:
"We had a few breakdowns defensively in the last 5 or 10 minutes of the game but we will pick each other up from this loss and we know what we need to work on."

Coach Tommy Dempsey

On the game:

"I was really worried about this game today. It was our fourth game in seven days and we lost a heartbreaker on thursday night. Our kids played great today, if we hadn't we wouldn't have been able to beat this Binghamton team."

On the halftime talk:
"We knew we needed to work on our transitions and controlling the ball. I think we did a much better job of that in the second half."
