Western Carolina head basketball coach, Larry Hunter
About the Elon Phoenix:
"(Elon) is a well-coached ball club. They've got great coaches and players and we expected them to play tough going into tonight's game."
On the change of pace in the second half of the game:
"I thought in the start of the second half that Elon did a good job getting themselves back in the game. They've got an all-conference player [Jack Isenbarger] and he showed up and played really well for them. They really got it going. They got the lead, then got a double-digit lead, got Trey (Sumler) in foul trouble and you know I just didn't think we played with the same aggressiveness as we did in the first half."
On redshirt junior Trey Sumler:
"Trey always plays hard. He's a great competitor. You know, we just need some other guys to step up because he can't do it alone."
On losing at home in the Ramsey Center:
"We lost at home so now we've got to go get another win on the road. I hate that the students had to see us lose. We had a great crowd and it would have been nice to give them a win."
