St. Mary is a really good team. They have a good chance to dance. Next week we play Furman which already beat Villanova. Strong out of conference such will help us build our Resume

This is one of the weakest St Mary teams I’ve seen and no they are not going to the dance. I think they have 5 losses already.

I’m worried about our lack of discipline and fundamentals. The Gaels looked like a better basketball team, were just out-athleted.

If you can't tell that we were playing better defense and that game I just don't know what to tell you I don't know if you were watching the same name as me or not

Good Team WIN. Got a little sky late but held on. Wonder if Wade will play this many players in conference and if not who sits? Got a lot of guys who bring a lot of different things to the table. Would love to see this team get it all together and make a deep run. Think we needed a guy like Wade for Men's Basketball for a while and enjoy this team a lot. GEAUX TIGERS!
