Kansas State Player Quotes

Senior Guard Claire Coggins

On improvement of her play in today’s game...

“All season you can look at my game and say I’ve been struggling offensively. I’ve proved that I can’t get bothered by anything and I got to keep playing my game with confidence and know that I’m a player that needs to be good for this team. I’ve never had any doubt that I was a good player, by any means. So if anything I’ve proved that I can stay confident, and I did that.”

                                                             

Freshman Forward Ashley Sweat

On transition play ...

“The coaches have been talking a lot about getting up the floor quick and transition baskets were huge in this game. When you have a point guard like Shalee who can throw awesome passes and get the ball to you right away it’s a smart thing to do to get up the floor quick and beat everyone up the floor to get easy baskets.”

 

On front court play...

“A lot of our extended offense helped us to open up the inside and Marlies had some nice looks and it also gave Claire a chance to take a drive if the middle was open.”

 

Sophomore Forward Marlies Gipson

On how Claire Coggins influences her game...

“They would have to pay more attention to Claire and have harder defense on her and if they have to go off and help with Claire she can find me for a bounce pass or down low. When Claire gets going its definitely gets me going.”

 

On chances of the team succeeding...

“If we work hard, the sky is the limit. We just need to come in work hard, every day whether it is practice or games, working together and we are definitely excited for a Big 12 season.”
