Florida State (80) vs. Wake Forest (89)
Feb. 2, 2002
Wake Forest Coach Skip Prosser
“We were concerned with Florida State, coming off two losses, it was like attacking a wounded animal here.”
“Florida State was undefeated in ACC at home and that was one of the challenges that we threw out to our kids this week, to be the first ACC team to win in Tallahassee.”
“I thought Florida State got off to a great start, Coach Robinson had them very well prepared.”
“We went to a zone defense against them in the first half, because it had been successful in Winston.”
“We had a good week with two road wins in the ACC.”
“We have been pretty good from the free throw line all year. We spend a lot of time on that.”
Florida State Coach Steve Robinson
“We just couldn’t get a stop when we had to have one.”
“We told our team that their effort was what we needed. I thought we certainly competed. We looked different in the second half, far more aggressive against their zone. I think it paid off, but we just didn’t get enough stops.”
“They made the plays they had to make to win on the road.” On Wake Forest
“We have a few days to build right up, try to get ourselves in the right frame of mind about playing. Today it hurts, no one likes losing.”
Senior Guard Delvon Arrington
“Bottom line is we need to start putting the ball in the bucket.”
Senior Guard Monte Cummings
“We never showed signs of giving up, that’s the most important thing.”
