Yale Head Coach Quotes

Yale Head Coach Chris Gobrecht

On the good start to open the game...
"We got off to a good start because we were not tired. We were able to get in the face a little bit and put pressure on them because we had energy and kept on our toes. When we got tired we lost a few steps and that allowed them to get open shots and you just cannot do that against K-State because they will make the open looks. We are just not where we need to be right now but we will get there by the time league starts."

On adjusting to K-State's zone defense...
"We definitely have to get better at our zone offense. We did adjust well to what they were doing and we did not work hard enough to find something different. This group of kids is pretty mild mannered but we need someone to want the ball in a tough situation."

On the seven game road trip YALE is currently on...
"That is the life we live right now. We have kids that have to have school first and we are not allowed to take them out of classes. So we have to play our road games when there are no classes in session. We would love to play some games on our home court but right now this is what we have to do."
