Kansas State Player Quotes

Freshman Forward Michael Beasley

On going into Big 12 play...

“I knew how physical the Big 12 was coming in but they told me that it was at a whole other level than we have been playing. The road games are going to be crazy. It’s good to go into conference play with a win like this, a confidence builder.

 

“If we play like we played tonight and we all bring our A-game, do what we have to do on defense and rebound like we ought to, there is no question that we will be ready.”

 

On K-State’s identity as a team...

“I would say that we are still searching (for an identity). I would like it to be rebounding but I can’t really tell, as of now.”

 

On Savannah State’s 4-point second half performance...

“I’ve never seen that before; that is crazy. They were playing hard but they weren’t knocking shots down. They had a couple of open shots but they just couldn’t hit it.

 

“It was good defense. We got a bit of a speech at halftime that woke everybody up. It was great defense and a good team effort from everyone. Today was the first time that we played defense as a team and it worked we played really great.”

 

Sophomore Forward Luis Colon

On K-State’s progress going into Big 12 play...

“We are looking pretty good. Last year we had a great season in conference play. We are a young team so if we go there and play hard like we do in every practice, apply ourselves to a position and just play basketball we should be fine.”
