Quick hits: Beilein, Douglass, Morgan 

February, 20, 2012
Michigan coach John Beilein, senior guard Stu Douglass and redshirt sophomore forward Jordan Morgan met with the media on Monday to discuss their Tuesday night matchup against Northwestern. Here are some of the main points they touched on:


  • ON THE CHALLENGES OF PLAYING IN EVANSTON: Northwestern has just three losses at home this season (Purdue, Illinois, Baylor). Beilein said it's tough to play there because of Northwestern coach Bill Carmody's style of play and how the Wildcats’ offense constantly evolves. "They throw so many things at you and the speed that they run it at is really interesting," Beilein said.
  • ON THE FAST TURNAROUND AFTER THE EMOTIONAL WIN OVER OSU: Beilein said he believes the team is over the Ohio State win and has moved on to the NU game. "Our kids are pretty focused about taking each day as it comes," Beilein said. "When you go on the road to play it's always difficult, especially Northwestern."
