2001-02 BKM at Penn State -- quotes

Postgame Quotes U-M Head Coach Tommy Amaker

On the game ... "It feels great to get the win. We have struggled on the road this season, but we fought hard tonight against a tough team and came out with the win. We came out of the blocks early in the game with something to prove and our guys came up with some big plays. It seemed like we got fatigued there at the end, but we had enough to finish. Penn State is a great team who fought us down to the wire. We are fortunate to come away with the victory."

On junior forward Lavell Blanchard ... "LaVell came out today ready to play. His shot still isn't there and we will work on that, but his effort on the glass was a big key to our success tonight."

On Blanchard's buzzer-beater going into halftime ... "We drew it up exactly as it happened, we even drew in using the backboard. It was just a great shot by LaVell. Chris (Young) did a great job getting the ball in bounds and LaVell did a great job to go up and get the ball."
