It's easy to come back, but hard to come back and win

In a January game at Montana, Northern Colorado was down by 16 at the half. Tad Boyle's team rallied in the second half, outscoring Montana, 38-31, but it wasn't enough as UM handed UNC its 13th loss of the season.

After the game, Coach Boyle, who played for Larry Brown at Kansas in the early 1980s, remembered something his former coach was fond of saying.

"Coach (Larry) Brown always used to tell our teams at Kansas that it's easy to come back. It's hard to come back and win, though. And that's why a lot of teams can't do it. We came back and cut the deficit a few different times today, but it happened there at the end when basically the game was over."
