SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) The entirety of what this season had been about for Ariel Massengale hit as she dropped to her knees while Maryland celebrated around her.
No trip to Tampa, Florida. No getting Tennessee back to the Final Four. No title for the final group of Lady Vols to have played for Pat Summitt.
"Cierra (Budrick), (Isabelle Harrison) and I wanted to take this team back to the Final Four. And end this drought for this program, for ourselves, for Pat," Massengale said. "We wanted it more than anything in the world. We felt we had a really good chance and just not being able to accomplish your ultimate goal, it hurts."
