Kansas State Player Quotes

Forward Jamar Samuels

On the benefit to having a redshirt year...

“It helped out a lot. I gained weight which makes it a lot easier of me to score around the rim. When I got here it was a lot more difficult because I weight around 180 lbs. and everyone was pretty much throwing me around.”

 

On why K-State’s defensive play is so tough...

“We like to just press up and get to the ball. We have a lot of athletic players that like to get up and put pressure on the ball. We get a lot of defensive rebounds and have a lot of blocked shots and that is the main thing that Frank (Martin) looks at.”

 

On the crowd’s reaction to his performance today...

“It was amazing. I have never played in a game where the crowd got that loud. It was crazy, it was shocking. I got goose bumps after that.”
