Maryland Head Coach Sasho Cirovski
"I'm proud of the way our team competed. We played confident and committed a lot of players forward in an intimidating environment. The few mistakes we made that cost us are very correctable and I'm very impressed by our team effort."
"The game was exactly what I expected- it was a great college game. The difference was that we missed an opportunity in the beginning that could have given us a whole lot of confidence. I felt good at the half and we pressured them more in the second half.... That's the best team we've seen this year. They've got to be one of the best teams in the country. There's probably four other teams in the ACC that are comparable, but on the day, Connecticut was the best."
"UCONN had maybe three or four good chances and got two goals. We had chances, but just didn't convert."
Connecticut Head Coach Ray Reid
"These were two even teams tonight. They're the best team we've seen all year. We did a better job finishing, but we were also playing at home. They're a good team, they're going to be around this year."
