We represent everybody in the city of Pittsburgh.
It doesn't matter what seed you are. It's basketball. You have to put the ball in the hole. It's kind of disrespectful for us to be a No. 5 seed. But, at the same time, you have to go out there and play ball.
I have to be honest. We were up early and ready to go. We just didn't execute on the court. As a result we lost the game.
This is the best five years I spent anywhere in my life. I didn't have anything but one book bag when I got here. This was a city known for football and we turned it into a nationally known basketball program. I'm proud of my achievements.
I had a better feeling than I ever had coming into any game. I definitely thought we were going to win this game. It's just sad for it to end like this.
They're a tough team. They executed their plays, they turned our turnovers into made baskets and did everything you're supposed to do in the NCAA tournament.
The team is in good hands with the young guys.
We're going to take it right to him. He's not going to block everything. We're going to right at him and hope to get him in foul trouble.
The tech gave them the momentum and they got a lot of energy from that play.
Obviously, the technical foul gave them momentum. They gained a lot of energy off that play.
I definitely thought we were going to win this game.
I was just overanxious. In my mind, I'm a competitor and a leader, so the leader needs to step up and make big plays.
We stay together. We really enjoy crunch time in games.
When you go on the road, it's about being a family, sticking together and coming through adversity. We gutted it out and got a tough win.
I believe in my teammates.
It was just a classic college basketball game. And our young guys came through.
Our young guys are the real deal. They help us win.
We wanted to get the ball to Gray down low. We wanted the inside presence, and feed off him.
He's a great competitor. He hates to lose, just like me.
We stay together. We enjoy sticking together and playing in crunch time.
I'm pretty disappointed. I didn't think we deserved a 5 seed. I thought we'd get a little better after the regular season and Big East tournament we had. But things happen for a reason.
I remember sitting up there in Kentucky just thinking I was so frustrated and mad that I wanted to help those guys out so bad. But now I get the opportunity.
