QUOTEBOOK...

UM H-COACH JOHN BEILEIN:   "Our last two road games were just like this, but they
didn't go our way; this one did...When you go through a season, hopefully you have
situations where you're down and your team fights back...We were just trying to
keep our composure...Our coaching staff, as much as we could, was trying to show
a "yes face" in the huddle. 'Just hang in there guys, hang in there, we have to make
a couple of baskets and get stops.'"
