See below for postgame video and select quotes of head coach Mike Brennan after American lost 84-79 to Lafayette to drop to 8-9, 2-4 in the Patriot League.
On Lafayette’s four man Paulius Zalys (21 points)
“(Myles) Cherry being out actually hurt us because he’s sort of more a traditional center so we’ve got (Mark) Gasperini and Josh (Alexander) playing more of a four man making them uncomfortable on the perimeter.”
On Mark Gasperini’s struggles (1-7 FGs, 4 TOs, 22 minutes)
“He just had a bad game i think. we ask a lot of him and he’s not completely there yet to deliver on everything we’re asking him to do essentially — make decisions, score in the post, throw it out, throw assists, just we ask a lot of that position. It’s gonna take some time for him to sort of get there.”
