Louisville Head Coach Dan McDonnell
(On the outcome) "Indiana has to be one of the best four seeds in the country. I'm really pleased to get the victory tonight."
(On the pitching) "Arnett may be one of the best pitchers we faced all year. I thought Justin showed a lot of heart tonight. I don't know if he has been as courageous as he was tonight."
"We play at a high level a very intense level and we work at that during the year. We try to play tournament baseball for 55 games."
Louisville 3B Chris Dominguez
(On the dropped ball) "Definitely a huge play they didn't capitalize and we did."
(On Justin) "Justin played awesome tonight. We know he is going to compete and pitch very well."
(On Louisville's style) "We try to play very aggressive that's our style of baseball. When we can take the extra bases we are going to try and do that."
Louisville LHP Justin Marks
"It didn't feel like my velocity was there tonight, but my breaking stuff was there."
"It's big to get that first tournament win and that's the best feeling you can have in this regional type atmosphere."
"Last year we were young and inexperienced, Tonight on our home field it is really nice to come out and play well and get our first regional win in front of our fans."
Indiana Head Coach Tracy Smith
(On the outcome of the game) "Justin Marks was tough tonight we knew that coming in. We just didn't hit the ball well tonight. He was throwing his breaking ball late in the count."
"We just didn't play good defense tonight. We didn't deserve to win this game tonight and Louisville did. We made mistakes tonight we just don't normally make. Baseball is a game of controlled emotion and we didn't have that tonight."
"By far this is the worst game we have played in a long time. It was an awesome environment tonight. I appreciate the fans coming out we just wish we would have played better."
Indiana LF Kipp Schutz
(On playing in front of a large crowd) "I love playing in front of a lot of fans. I don't feel like we were nervous. We just didn't play defense."
(On only having four singles) "We didn't swing it as well as we like. Marks is a good pitcher, hopefully we can pick it back up and get the bats going tomorrow."
