Northwestern Wildcats return home after dream season comes to an end

Northwestern Wildcats return home after dream season comes to an end

"I think about it".

"You guys saw it".

"When we get in these atmospheres, there's a confidence and belief that we belong".

"We're always going to attack inside out", said assistant coach Tommy Lloyd, who compiled the scouting report.

"As much as we deserved the fans flying out here and giving us as much love as they did, they deserve just as much credit as we do", Law said.

Will other teams try to mimick SDSU's strategy? This is the last thing we wanted to do. Bottom line: Few isn't ruling out anything. "Even the people who weren't wearing purple - we had a big following out here and it means everything to us". "That brings more fun, brings more competitiveness to us and brings out our best". "Our entity and our brand are national now".

There was the family in Oregon Ducks gear behind Gonzaga's basket, the man in the Real Salt Lake uniform, the woman in the Utah Jazz jersey, the elderly man in the Idaho long-sleeve, the little boy in the BYU T-shirt - all of them were on their feet for Northwestern.

CBS cameras showed a young Wildcats fan often throughout the game because, well, he was incredibly invested in the action.

"There were a lot of times during the season where we could have just laid down and not have made it this far, but we knew what we wanted to do and wanted to fight through it", he said. The Wildcats were in the tournament for the first time ever, and they made the second round. "We fell a little short today, but it's been an unbelievable ride", said senior forward Sanjay Lumpkin.

There's more to the Crying Northwestern Kid story.

Or when you're an eight seed putting a one seed on the ropes. That's really not the case. Gonzaga speed, inside scoring with their bigs, and dictating the flow and temple of the game was what got them the win.

But as forward Calvin Hermanson said, "the scoreboard's still on". Arizona coach Sean Miller coached the Musketeers from 2004-09 before taking over in Tucson.

I thought we responded several different times to their runs throughout the second half. "We hadn't shown that yet obviously in the tournament". Gonzaga now moves to play 4th seed West Virgina. Chris Collins said as much in his post-game press conference.

"We don't think of anything as pressure", Gonzaga's Nigel Williams-Goss said.

And the freshman Ivanauskas never has to let go of his teammate-signed March Madness memento, but he probably also needs to make room for signs from upcoming tournaments. "They were friendly to me, it was kind of weird".

Kelan Martin scored 19 points and Andrew Chrabascz added 15 as Butler won a second-round game at Bradley Center in Milwaukee to advance to the Sweet 16.

Collins credited the fans' energy for motivating his team down the stretch of the first-round game, when his players were exhausted and his team was trying to cling to a lead. The Seminoles held on 86-80.

"We're all emotional, we were coming back from 20 down". We like playing when fans are against us.
