    Quote of the Day: Ilian Evtimov after losing to UNC - "We did not play hard, so we were not in rhythm. They were making any play they wanted to make. They were calling plays and just making them. We were just out there and didn't play hard. They did, and that was the difference. They were in rhythm to make their shots, and consequently we missed our shots."
