USC 73, Navy 40 Notes And Quotes
Don DeVoe, Navy: "My team said it all. We are outmanned against the caliber of a team like South Carolina. It's always tough for us against an SEC team. We don't have anyone to keep up with their players. Hopefully our team will learn something from this. It was good for us and we'll prepare for our next game on Monday. South Carolina did a job being the aggressor and playing solid defense. Jeff Charles is our point guard and is the best we have at controlling the basketball. It's a credit to South Carolina's defense on what they were able to do to him (11 turnovers). He made some bad ball handling mistakes."
