"To be honest, they were much better than us in the first half, full credit to them", conceded Mauricio.
A drubbing was expected when the League Two minnows visited White Hart Lane on Saturday but the result was quite the opposite as the two teams delivered a classic FA Cup contest.
"That is football, and I am sure they are very sad now and disappointed, but we can do nothing".
The 44-year-old told BBC Sport: "We did not underestimate them. This is the magic of the FA Cup".
That dramatic last-gasp goal saw Spurs book their place in the fifth round, although Gareth Ainsworth and Wycombe can take pride in their display, despite the cruel ending.
It looked that was that, but as the very last seconds ran down, Wycombe hearts were broken.
"It was hard for me when I arrived in England to say the FA cup is magic, or the "beauty of the FA Cup", but now I realise it is a special competition", the Argentinian added.
Spurs played the final half an hour with 10-men after Kieran Trippier hobbled off in tears with a hip problem but Pochettino said he had not had a chance to assess the defender.
"It was hard for me at the start when I arrived in England four years ago to understand the magic of the FA Cup but now I realise it is a special competition", Pochettino said. Now I realise that it's a special competition.
"That is the FA Cup".
"I think it is the most special in the world because you cannot replicate it in Spain or France or Italy, the same passion, the same on the pitch, the way a small side from League Two like Wycombe can be exciting".
His sentiments were echoed by his club, who used their official Twitter account to commend the League Two side for their superb effort. "The beauty of the FA Cup..."
"They showed that they are very sad now and disappointed".
"The lads have done me and the town so proud". Maybe they were lucky with a few extra seconds added, that was about it'.
