Kansas State Head Coach Frank Martin Quotes

On Kansas jumping out to an 18-0 lead:

“For us to come out and turn it over three of our first four possessions the way we did was just unfortunate. I’ve been here three years and three years in a row we’ve been down 20 at the first media timeout. I don’t know what it is about us in this building.”

 

On concerns he has of his team:

None. I’ve got none. It’s the same team that played hard to get back in the game. It’s the same team that we’ve been coaching for three and a half months. I’ve got no concern whatsoever. We’re a young team and need to understand why things work for us sometimes and sometimes they don’t.”

 

On if his team was intimidated:

“I don’t think intimidation had anything to do with it. You see the way we came back? We don’t do that if we’re intimidated.”

 

On Sherron Collins:

“You guys asked me and I told you. I think he’s the best guard in the league and you could argue he’s the best player in the league. He’s healthy again. Sitting there watching him on tape, he’s back to what he was as a freshman. He’s fast, he’s explosive, he scores it off the jumper, he scores it off the dribble, and he scores it in the paint. He’s a good player.”
