Michigan Head Coach Tommy Amaker
On Michigan picking up its first road win of the season ... "To have an opportunity to win our first road game was significant. I was proud of how we started off the game, and the start was the difference. This was a critical stage for us, and for us to go on the road and compete in a tough place against a quality opponent, I was pleased to get a road victory."
On Michigan's play down the stretch ... "I thought Lester (Abram) and Dion (Harris) had the two biggest plays. Dion's three-pointer late was huge, and he got the ball upcourt against pressure. We had some problems on defense where we were playing cautious and playing not to foul, but you have to give them (Miami) credit."
On Miami's Nathan Peavy and Michael Bramos ... "Peavy is a good player inside and out. We didn't want to foul him and wanted to put pressure on him without fouling. We blocked some shots and were tough around the basket, and that may have helped us. Bramos played well. Last year he was outstanding and I think the world of him. He's a terrific basketball player."
