“We knew UMBC was going to be a tough team. They have a great offense, and we knew after a long week of spring break and practice we needed to really show up today. To have a game where we were down big, it was a hard game to play in and I was really proud we came out of the half with an attitude that said we could get it done and we climbed our way back in.” – Temple Head Coach Bonnie Rosen
