UNC-Maryland: Mike Fox Postgame Quotes

"We’re ecstatic to have won that ball game. It wasn’t easy. Maryland is just playing so well. We knew the game wasn’t over.

It’s pretty deflating, obviously, to lose that kind of lead, but I’m proud of our guys for coming back and winning. It was obviously a big win for us." (Inside Carolina)
