K-State Player Quotes

Forward Ashley Sweat

On match-up with Corey Montgomery...

“I think, obviously, she is a great player. She had a great game coming out. She is kind of versatile; she got some outside shots off in the first half, and I think if you leave her open, she is going to make those (shots). She had a good night. Like (Coach Deb Patterson) said, for a team that’s been kind of riddled with injuries this year, I think she is their go-to player. She showed why she is leading their team.”

 

On being effective on offense...

“The more versatile I can be, I think that helps my game and in-turn opens things up for my teammates. I believe that was a big part of our game tonight, especially Shalee (Lehning) off the drive, opening things up for our shooters and Kari (Kincaid) and Shalin (Spani) knocking down shots. I just think that is so big for our team to be able to play together like that.”

 

Guard Kari Kincaid

On her 3-point bank shot...

“I was just lucky that Shalee (Lehning) found me because I was trying to be sneaky and not say anything. I knew I had an open look and I shot it, and I guess I just put it in the right spot. So a little bit of luck, but I guess I had to shoot it in order to get luck.”

 

On a slow start and coming out in the second half...

“I think they got us on a little roll early. Coming out in the second half, right at the beginning, is really important in a game. I am just glad that the shots eventually went in. Whatever helps my team, I am happy with.

 

Guard Shalin Spani

On working as a team to find a way to win...
“Well, I think it is all about my teammates getting shots. Shalee (Lehning), Marlies (Gipson), and Ashley (Sweat), whatever they bring inside obviously opens up shots outside for Kari (Kincaid), Danielle (Zanotti), and Kelsey (Nelson), and I. I think it is all about them and what they bring, which is just like what we are able to do. It is just a blessing that we are able to be out there and compete with them and work with them everyday. It is our responsibility to hold our end of the deal and knock down shots for them. It was nice that we could do that for them tonight. That is what I tried to do.”
