Q U O T E S
Michigan coach Tommy Amaker
On the game ... "It was certainly frustrating for us from an offensive standpoint. We couldn't get on track, we missed a lot of easy interior shots and I thought that got us a little frustrated. But I thought both teams were pretty darn good defensively. I thought it was that kind of game today where possessions are going to be very important and very valuable and whatever team could have a little surge or breakout [would have an advantage]. But we didn't value the ball, we had some silly turnovers, and we certainly couldn't put it in the hole, and then [there were] some of our key guys that we need to score for us in particular."
On whether the free throw shooting was so lopsided because they were more aggressive ... "I think so. I think they were able to attack the basket a few times. They attacked it in the post, trying to drop-step looking for contact. I thought they got some loose balls. If you go after those kinds of things its funny how you get rewarded for getting fouled or going to the foul line and I thought they were quicker to the ball than we were this afternoon."
On whether he takes anything away from going toe-to-toe with these kinds of teams on the road ... "Well, I'm sure once we look at the tape and analyze things from this afternoon that we'll find some positive things. I was impressed we were able to put some fight there at the end; I thought we still competed all the way through, but as [far as] going toe-to-toe in some of these tougher places with some really good basketball teams, we'll look at it and see if we can gather something from it but it's still a loss."
