VU-'Nova postgame quotes
Dec. 1, 2012
Villanova 62, Vanderbilt 52
Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings
“We got the game back to two points… Kedren [Johnson] falls down going to the goal and we don’t secure the goal [on another possession]. It goes from two to six and the air goes out of the gym.”
“It’s hard to survive guys having bad days. We had some guys who didn’t have good days, and we don’t have enough depth to overcome that.”

Villanova head coach Jay Wright
"Anytime you come on the road and play an SEC team it's always hard, especially one coached by Coach Stallings. They really execute and they are very difficult to defend. They run a lot of complicated sets, so i was really mostly pleased with our defense and our rebounding."
On Defensive Performance
"We struggled at first and gave up some back screen lay ups. We were really struggling, but I thought we got better in the second half. We didn't give up offensive rebounds in the second half and that was big."
On Winning on the Road
"We made some big plays and that's what I was really pleased with. When you play a team on the road like this, they are not going to beat themselves. They are not going away."
Difference between first and second half
"In the first half, as I said, we were getting caught on their screens. We were really struggling with their offense, but I think in the second half we attacked their screens well, we stayed matched up, so when they missed we rebounded the ball."
