"It puts basketball in its proper place. Win or lose tonight, I felt an emptiness in my stomach. Another senseless act of violence that we’ve experienced as a country many, many times," Boyle said after the team’s loss to Florida State.

"Even if we would have won this game and celebrated going to the Sweet 16, it would have put a damper on it. My heart goes out to the families that were affected and those that lost their lives," he said.
