Postgame Reaction: Head Coach Jay Vidovich after Pitt advances to Sweet 16 for first time ever

With the win, No. 2 Pitt will now face No. 7 Washington in the 4th round on Monday (1 p.m. kickoff) to determine which team from this quadrant of the NCAA Tournament bracket will make the College Cup (Final Four).

Pitt Head Coach Jay Vidovich caught up with the media via Zoom call after the match.

“It was a good win tonight,” said Vidovich. “The way we are combining, we’re willing to defend and grind out wins to find beautiful goals and enduring goals. I think we are starting to not only be healthy, but we have guys who know how to do their job and come off the bench and really help us out. I am proud of our guys today.”
