2001-02 BKM at Illinois -- quotes

U-M Head Coach Tommy Amaker

On the talent displayed by Illinois ... "Well, they certainly deserved the win today. They played outstanding basketball. They're coming back home from being on the road and this homestand they have is going to be very important for them and they showed that. The beat us in all aspects of the game. They out-hustled us, out-played us, and out-coached us."

On what U-M has to build upon after this loss ... "I thought we definitely had some solid play. Looking at a kid like Mike Gotfredson, who played with a lot of heart and determination today and was able to put some points up for us, was good to see. Rotulu Adebiyi did an outstanding job, also. He knows he doesn't have all the physical skills that other players do, but he was able to accomplish a lot out there on the court today. We're going to continue to look for hard work from our players and those who do that will be rewarded with playing time."
