WAKE FOREST COACH SKIP PROSSER

All you have to do is look at the rebounding stats. That was the story of the game. We guarded well, especially in the second half, except for the second shot. But when you get one and they get two, it's really hard to win.

We didn't want Singletary to beat us. He made a good shot, but we were a little late in the rotation. Singletary's a big shot maker and so is Reynolds. It's sort of, `Pick your poison.' As has been our wont lately, it ended up being poison.

(Virginia's rebounding advantage) That was a great effort on the part of Virginia. They ratted out more than their share of the long rebounds.

(On Gray's last shot attempt) He probably could have taken a couple of more dribbles. We're run that play before, at N.C. State last year. We got what we wanted there.

VIRGINIA COACH Dave Leitao

At times, it was exasperating because we weren't playing the game the way we needed to by defending a little bit more, protecting our space on the floor and giving up easy baskets. But the reason for that is that they're a heck of an offensive team. With Williams and Gray they have two of the most outstanding offensive players we have faced all year long. But we did a good job late in the game of getting a little more aggression and as a result getting them a little off balance.

The rebounding margin was huge. Twenty-one offensive rebounds against the best offensive rebounding team in the league speaks to our stick-to-itiveness on a day when our defense didn't really live up to its potential.

(On Diane's rebounding) The guys gave him an ovation in the lockerroom after the game. We told them at halftime that you can make other contributions in the game. If you defend, rebound, move your feet, those kinds of things, you'll find yourself much more involved in the game. He did a tremendous job.

(On J.R. Reynolds) He defended one of the best offensive players in the league, and when you do that sometimes it wears you out on the other end. I thought that he did a very admirable job on offense.
