Keatts presser after ACCT loss to Boston College : BULLETED

Keatts met with the media to discuss his teams 2nd round ACC Tournament loss to Boston College. Above is the full video and below is the bulleted summary.


  • Congratulate BC. Great job in the first half. Guards played well. Scored for themselves but got everyone involved.
  • Team was slow getting started. Got in a big deficit early and had to battle back at halftime.
  • Talked about staying the course and guys did. Thought if we made some shots the press could get us back in the game. It did and had a chance to win it at the end .
  • Unfortunate. Guys battled hard for a win but came up short.
  • BC answered every time with a basket. Pretty exciting final 3 minutes of the game. Just couldn’t get over the hump.
  • Robinson and Bowman are good players and get into the paint. Can score on all 3 levels and finish around the rim. Good FT shooting team also. Could be the best backcourt in the ACC.
  • Approach was the same. A little different from time at UNCW where you had to win the conference tournament or there was no post season play. So a little different, but as far as prep, team was mentally prepared to win the game.
  • Going to gather as a team and watch the selection show on Sunday. Not sure where. Body of work is pretty good when you look at what we’ve done in a shsort amount of time and beating 5 top 25 teams and winning on the road against the #2 team in the country. Excited about it and excited for these guys to get the opportunity.
  • Next opportunity to play a game it could be the last chance the seniors have to play together. Can’t come out the way we did. Challenged these guys at halftime and they responded. Did a tremendous job in 2nd half.
  • Not sure why they didnt play well to start. Must take from this that one-and-done situations, you have to play the entire game. Must finish. Team was right there to win this game and certainly would have been great to do so.
  • Dorn on the bench changes the team. More success when using the 4 guard rotation and without Dorn it changes. Malik came in and did a good job but got in foul trouble. Definitely changes you.
  • Markell got caught in the moment with the timeout-technical. As a staff, we try to tell them how many timeouts we have and whose possession it is. He’s not to blame. He made a play, got to the hole and scored with 7 seconds left. Wanted them to go back and play defense but got caught up in the moment.
