Larry Fedora Radio Show Quotes

Larry Fedora on the win over Virginia: “We were far from playing our best. We have yet to put together a complete game in all three phases. It’s discouraging and exciting at the same time because I know it’s going to happen, I just don’t know when. But we found a way to win, that’s probably the most important thing, is we did what it took to win. We made a few more plays than they did.” (Inside Carolina)
