If tonight is any indication of how much heart they had. You know, we got down and early in the game, and they just relentlessly fought back every minute of the game until we felt that we had a good chance of winning the game and from that point, they just knew that they weren’t going to be denied. Like I said; tremendous heart, tremendous performance tonight, and I’m very proud of every single one of those individuals.”
