Head coach Michael White Post-game Quotes
On rebounding from Thursday loss:
"This was one of the biggest wins that we have had, obviously this year, but in the past few years. This, probably along with UTEP, are probably our biggest wins of the year because we understand the amount of success Kermit [Davis] and the Middle Tennessee program have had in this building and how hard it is to score against one of the elite mid-major defenses."
On the Bulldogs' defense:
"I hate to say that our defensive effort was terrible against UAB because they are really good rebounders and they had a lot to do with that obviously, but you cannot go into someone else's building who has a really good team and just give pretty good effort. Our effort, especially for us a team that struggles to rebound, has to be off the charts any time we are in between the lines."
On Xavian Stapleton:
"I am really, really proud [of Xavian Stapleton]. Xavian, just like all of our guys, still have room for improvement. He made some mistakes, but he made a lot of positive plays to help us win. If he did not play the way he did, we would not have come in here and won."
On the next two league games being at home:
"It is added opportunity for us to continue to improve moving forward and opportunity to continue to defend our home court at a high level and to continue to make strides as a team at the right time of the season."
