First is Penn State head coach Pat Chambers. He was very displeased with the team's 23 turnovers and how they handled the Duquesne pressure defense. He would also like to see Tim Frazier take more control of the offense while putting up more shots.
Duquesne coach Ron Everhart also talked to the media following the game. He was proud of the effort Eric Evans and Jerry Jones put forth tonight. The Dukes rolled in the second half of tonight's game, outscoring the Lions 37-27 while forcing 23 total turnovers.
Finally, Duquesne players Eric Evans and Jerry Jones were on hand to speak after the game. The two were instrumental in the Dukes' second half success. Jones has been a pleasant surprise for the Dukes and looks forward to contributing. Eric Evans is showing that he wants to be the team's leader as a senior as this season has gone along.
