"Each team is different," Thompson said. "We lost some great players going into this year ... our team and our coaches did an excellent job just throughout the year of overcoming adversity, working together, getting over humps."
"We definitely came into this tournament knowing what we needed to do," Thompson said. "We came in confident tonight. We knew that we needed to hit. I mean, we did a great job getting people open. I felt like we had a lot of open shots, and that has to go for our people penetrating. So we did a great job just all around team effort of doing that."
