(WUSA9) -- The Maryland women's basketball team chooses a theme every year. This season it was "We Will." It served them well as they willed their way to the Final Four, but "We Will" has now become "We Didn't."
There was a lot of disappointment after the game against Notre Dame. The Terps ended their season with the 87-61 loss. Inside the locker room was a lot of heartache. The ladies tried to be strong, but know this is the last time they'll play together and they didn't reach their goal of a national championship.
"We're disappointed in ourselves but about this game but look over season have to be proud of all we accomplished and all we been through and all we fought through and so I'm just proud, but you don't see it in my face right now," said Katie Rutan.
"It's sad but again can't be disappointed never been to Final Four in my career so I'm happy with it," shared Alyssa Thomas.
Coach Brenda Frese told us, "Final Four appearance at the end of the day only one gets to end with a win. Obv we're disappointed we were hoping to be more competitive than we were tonight… four great teams so proud of this team and all they've accomplished."
Most pundits had Notre Dame winning this game. Maryland didn't put much stock in it and hoped for a Music City Miracle. It just wasn't meant to be.
