South Carolina vs. East Tennessee State November 24, 2002

South Carolina Head Coach Dave Odom Quotes

“Certainly, we’re pleased to win the game. I’m particularly pleased knowing ETSU should be in the running for their conference championship. I thank my lucky stars for Carlos Powell and Chuck Eidson. We fell prey to some things that actually bothered us last year. We must do a better job by ourselves.”

“We had a little nervousness before the game. This building is spectacular, but we must work our way up to play at its level. We must get our players in better shape.”

“There were some things that we did do. We won the game. We’re always looking for toughness – you show your toughness by possession by possession. We missed enough lay-ups to put the game away three times. Starting lineups will change until I feel comfortable with it.”

“We ended up shooting the ball reasonably well. We’re not attacking with confidence.”

East Tennessee State Head Coach Ed DeChellis

“It was a very good basketball game. It’s a wonderful building. Both teams played physical. We just can’t turn the ball over 29 times and give up the amount of offensive rebounds that we did. We didn’t execute at times and we’re not just as athletic or strong as South Carolina is.”

“Chuck Eidson worked hard for them and he’s always around for the big plays. Whether its dribbling the ball or making the right pass, he’s always there.”
