    • Florida Gulf Coast Forward Chase Fieler: It's an unbelievable feeling. We played a very tough team in Georgetown. They have great players. They're a historic school. So being a newer school it's very exciting for us to be able to win a game like that and for the NCAA history. That's exciting and impressive to be a part of that.

    • (on losing to a double-digit seed in each of their last four appearances)
      Georgetown Coach John Thompson III: I wish I could, trust me, more than anyone on this Earth. I've tried to analyze it, think about it, look at it, think about what we should do differently and I don't know.

    • Florida Gulf Coast Guard Sherwood Brown: This is our first time being in the NCAA tournament. To actually go out there and win that first game, it means something really special to us.
