MT vs. Western KY Fan Quotes

February 26, 2004 · Brian Hand, graduate assistant
On a night that even before tip-off all signs pointed towards a Blue Raider victory, the fans were more than vocal about having a full house at the Murphy Center and the inevitable win over Western Kentucky.

Before the Game

"I think that it is great for the university to have so many people going to the game so that people can see that we have a good team."
--Jeff Ingram, junior at MT

"I think that if the people see the Murphy Center filled up like this then it will turn more people onto basketball, especially if they win."
--Ben Holl, junior at MT

"More people will come to the games if we win and by winning tonight it will show the fans what all the fuss is about."
--Rodney Posley, sophomore at MT

"I have been a season ticket holder for quite some time now. If we win tonight it will be really good for the university. Tommy (Gunn) and the other guys on the team have been working hard to make sure we have a good team."
--Richard Walden, alumni of MT and season ticket holder

Halftime

"It is better when there are more people here. It makes the game a lot more fun."
--Valencia Jordan, Charmaigyn Salim, and Janice Weaver, MT students

After the Game

"I am almost a century old and I have been coming to games at MT for almost 30 years. To see such a big crowd is great. I have never seen one like this at the Murphy Center. And for us to get the win on top of having such a great crowd makes it that much better."
--Bryant Kelly, MT alumni

"I think that it is appropriate that on the night with the biggest crowd that we defeated one of our biggest rivals in Western Kentucky. I am not even really a basketball fan and I know that it was awesome."
