Kansas State Player Quotes

Junior Forward David Hoskins

On the defense...

“We just couldn’t get a stop. We came down and made a couple of baskets, but it seemed like for a 10-mintue stretch, they just got layups and shots that they wanted to get.”

 

On the offense...

“I don’t think there is anything wrong with the offense. It seemed like when we needed a basket or a nice shot, we turned it over. We really needed a stop, they scored or they got an offensive rebound.”

 

Senior Guard Akeem Wright

On the offense...

“I don’t think there’s anything missing. We’re just not executing as coach wants us to. They switched a lot of stuff to try to take us out of stuff and we had to adjust to that. That caused some little problems on the offense. They switched because we do a lot of screening. The man at the top of the screen just switched off so that caused some problems for us. I think we still got good shots and we have to finish them off.”

 

On preparing for Texas Tech...

”We scouted them pretty good. We had a day to prepare and we knew what they were going to do. We had some things we wanted to adjust and do with the way they defended us. Like I said, we had a couple layups missed. Cartier (Martin) missed some shots that he usually makes.”

 

Freshman Forward Bill Walker

On how he tore his ACL against Texas A&M...

“I can’t even tell you (how it happened). I just buckled my knee. I just think it got bumped on the jump and came down awkwardly.”

 

On coming back from the injury...

“I’ve been down that road before. It’s pretty much back to work. I’m going to try to rehab it and get it as strong as I can.”
