Michigan Coach Tommy Amaker

On the game ... "It's a great win. We know how tough it can be to get a win on the road with a lot on the line, and I thought our players came out and played with the toughness and poise to get the job done. We have been striving to do that all year and it was nice to do it on the road in this type of environment. It was a competitive game and both teams laid it all on the line. ... It was just a total team effort."

On Dion Harris replacing Lester Abram in the starting lineup ... "It was more along the lines of me listening to our players. Lester came to me and indicated he thought Dion was struggling and offered up his starting position to see if that could get Dion going. It blew me away, I'm still in awe of the move. It speaks volumes of who he is as a player and as a man. Certainly it helped Dion's confidence, because we need his play."

U-M Senior Bernard Robinson Jr.

On his three-pointer late in the game ... "It was a well-executed play. The play call was a dribble-drive and a kick-out to me on the side. I was ready for the shot. It was a big three, a big change of pace. We needed that shot because we had missed a few coming into that possession. It was definitely a big one."

On the win ... "It helps out our psyche a lot. We needed to win one on the road. It was a tough environment and tough crowd with this being their Senior Day. I think we did a good job with it."

U-M Sophomore Daniel Horton

On his play in the first half ... "With Bernard and Lester in foul trouble, I had to step up and make plays. Coach told me to attack their press and when we got a rebound he wanted me to push up the floor and make a play."

On what this win means ... "This win is real big, it puts us right back where we want to be. Hopefully we can string a few games together. I think we'll be fine."
