post game show

The after game press conference was as predictable as they all are. No one will accuse college coaches and their star players of not staying on message.

The victors had to withstand the opponent's early lead and "overcome adversity". When the star player was asked if the team was thinking about last year's loss in a CAA semi final game, "No we just think about the present. Last year is last year." When asked about a particular opposing player. "We think in terms of team, not individual players." When asked about the value of a star player on VCU the coach said "we win as a team and lose as a team" and "he is not only a great player but a great person."

This is not to disparage Anthony Grant the VCU coach. He is as eloquent and professional as one could be. And his teams always play intelligently.
