Coach Jim Nagle's Reaction

"I was so proud of our team's effort. This was our first game facing a team with Virginia's kind of speed. Our upperclassmen performed great, but our younger guys need to understand the mentality of playing a four-quarter game. But I certainly tip my hat to our younger guys. They are playing a lot and against some quality opponents. I'm very confident in our older guys' leadership. If our younger guys tap into their potential, we're going to be at a good point the rest of the season."
