"They do love each other, and that's where it starts. That's where the success starts in our program is right there, is love and the relationships that they have and our coaches have built with our players and the sense of responsibility we feel to each other to give our very best. And I thought our guys laid it on the line and gave their very best." - Head Coach Jeff Monken
