"It's a really a proud moment for me, for these guys, for the 27 players and my staff. I couldn’t be luckier to be a part of something like this. To go into a game against a team like that, defending champions, very talented, I just give our guys a lot of credit. We were resilient tonight." - head coach Steve Rohlik
"The Big Ten doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves but three teams making it to the Final Four obviously speaks for itself and it’s a really tough conference and there are a lot of tough teams you have to play every weekend." - Dakota Joshua
