Kansas State Player Quotes

Junior Forward/Guard Claire Coggins

On the second half run...

“Obviously, that run was very big for us. We talked about coming out of the second half wanting to make a run. Once we got up, unlike the first half, we kept our lead. That run just ignited us. There is also something about Bramlage that make it tough (for our opponents). It is something we took advantage of and it got us going.”


Sophomore Guard Shalee Lehning

On the play of Marlies Gipson...

“Marlies was tremendous tonight. She was doing everything from all aspects of the game. She was boarding, she was scoring, and she was bringing the ball down like a point guard. It relieves a lot of pressure off of everyone around us. When the guards were seeing as much pressure to stretch them and finish at the rim like that was awesome. She impacts us all and makes us all better.”


Sophomore Forward Marlies Gipson

On Coach Patterson’s reference to Nichole Ohlde and Gipson...

“It is a complement and I am honored by her saying that. Just with me bringing the ball down the court, knowing the pressure that point guards have on them, I looked to help them out by keeping my defenders off of me.”
