Louisville Head Coach Ken Lolla
"I'd like to give a lot of credit to Maryland. They're a very good team and they made us earn it tonight. For big portions of the game, we were figuring out how to get at them, defending for longer periods than we have all year. Their pressure is very good. "
"I'm so proud of our guys on how they handled the game tonight. Two times being up and Maryland equalizing, and then having what we needed to win the game at the end. We had some of our better guys make special plays tonight, and that was the difference in the game."
Maryland Head Coach Sasho Cirovski
"I thought they were a highly motivated team and I think the right team won tonight."
"We ran into a team that was the preseason favorite for a reason. They have a lot of quality, a lot of maturity. They're physically strong and skillful. They're much better than their seed, and much better than their record."
"I feel terrible for our guys because I think they have played some great soccer this season, some of the best soccer in years here. Unfortunately we could not put together a defensive performance worthy of advancing out of this round against a very good team."
