 Bret Tuetken - “There's talent, yes, but they had to improve. I don't know if we really expected to win the state tournament. Getting to state was our goal, and we played well that weekend. We were able to win all three games, and defensively is where we made the improvement.”
 Bret Tuetken - “The one thing about this team is they go out every night and expect to win. You can't teach that. It doesn't matter who the opponent has been. They aren't cocky or look past anyone or anything like that, but they expect to win every time they go out on the floor.”

 Bret Tuetken - “I thought we came out in the first half extremely focused and very intense. Defensively they never did have any easy passes, and we were able to convert on some turnovers to give us a little bit of lead.”
 Bret Tuetken - “We won 20 games last year playing a lot of sophomores but we never won that game against an elite team. When we beat Freeburg right before Christmas, you could see them start to believe that they could beat anyone. And when we beat T-Town, you could tell that they really believed.”
