Michigan Head Coach Mark Rosen
On getting the win ... "I think we cannot look the past the fact this was a big win for us. It was not the prettiest win, but it was a win. After losing set three and four, I am really proud of this group for regrouping and coming out in the fifth set. I am very proud of that because we could have just as easily folded and lost that fifth set. We need to celebrate that and move on to the next one."

On the play of Sloane Donhoff ... "I think today, Sloane was an anchor for this team. She was trying to keep everyone grounded and keep people together. I think that is something as a libero, a senior and a captain that we need from her. She did such a great job and was a stabilizing force out there for us."

On where the team goes from here ... "I think we need to use tonight as momentum. We need to work on trusting ourselves. Each player needs to trust themselves and then that will build trust between the players. It is not mean-spirited, everyone just needs to believe in themselves. If I trust myself, then everyone else will trust me. We cannot expect to trust each other if we do not believe in ourselves."
