"It's been a really funny year," coach Kevin Corrigan said. "We've had some terrific wins. We beat the pants off of a very good Virginia team and feel good about ourselves. Then we drop one to Denver. It's just kind of been an up-and-down thing. Somebody said to me, 'Gosh, you guys have been playing so loose and fast since the ACC tournament.' I said, 'Yeah, I think it's about the time we went up 6-5 on Maryland is when we started playing loose and fast,' because until then, that was just a nailbiter of a game. Just every possession and every pass seemed to get heavier and heavier when you're playing in a 6-5 game like that. Then you come out in the next one, and it's just, 'OK, let's just go and play.' And I think that's when we're at our best. That plays to the strengths of our team. We're an athletic team, and we've got a lot of guys who can make plays, and that plays to our strengths."
