Michigan Head Coach Tommy Amaker
On Michigan's 20 turnovers ... "It was a huge difference. We certainly self-destructed and you have to give Indiana credit for the things that they did. But it was totally unacceptable for us to play in the manner in which we did in terms of turning the ball over. It's very disappointing because of the way we have been playing and showing some toughness. They (Indiana) got us out of synch and we went in a downward spiral. We had no one out on the floor that could get things together and make things happen. If you have that on the road, then it's a formula for failure."

On Indiana's 8-0 run to open the second half ... "There's no question that it was the difference. We went into halftime making sure that we wanted to get off to a good start in the second half. The start we got off to was turning the ball over, just like we did to begin the game. This time we weren't able to rally and regain the lead and that was the difference."

On the bright spots of the game ... "I thought Brent Petway was an energizer for us and he made some big defensive plays. We didn't get the production from our perimeter players and our guards. I was very disappointed in how we handled the ball and valued the ball. We took some bad shots and it was just a very disappointing effort here tonight."
