Kansas State vs. Kansas
Kansas Head Coach Quotes
Head Coach Bill Self
On win tonight...
"I thought that was a great game, we did not play great. I think it is impossible to play great with how hard Kansas State plays. It was two competitive teams getting after it and those are the fun games to watch."

On last possession...
"I think we took time with about 16 seconds and we did the same thing that we did against Cornell which was a tight game. We faked the ball screen and he (Sherron Collins) was able to turn the corner and made a nice and-one which was similar to the game in Allen Fieldhouse."

On be aggressive play of Cole Aldrich...
"I like the way he played. I thought we controlled the first half since we led by one point and we do not rebound. They are a great offensive rebounding team, and I know that I cannot speak for Frank (Martin) but they did not block us and we did not block them out so the rebounds were about even. I thought Cole was pretty aggressive and they hurt us when he was not in."

Kansas Player Quotes
Senior Brady Morningstar
On playing in the tough environment...
"This was a big win, a great win for us. A minute to go and we were up three and we turn it over. I take the blame for that. He threw the ball to me and I need to go and get it. We've got to learn to execute in those situations with the game on the line. It was a great win."

On the crowd...
"It was a tough crowd. When the crowd is into it, it gets loud, and momentum changes real quick. When the other team is hitting shots, you've just got to get the ball and execute on the offensive end."

On Sherron Collins...
"He is like he has been every year. He is the best player in America to me and he's huge for us in the clutch. When we need a score, we get the ball to him and he goes in there and gets it done."

Senior Cole Aldrich
On what this win says about the team...
"It says a lot. Coach said for the past few days that the men are going to come to show. I think we had a lot of guys step up and do some really good things."

On the most enjoyable part of getting the win...
"All the adversity we overcame. We kind of shot ourselves in the foot after getting up. Then we got up again, even though we let them back in to it. Fortunately, we were able to come out of here with a victory, because this was probably the most hostile crowd we've played in front of all year."

On being on a roll as a team...
"Yes, I do (feel like the team is on a roll). Coach said walking back to the locker room, he said 'they felt that.' I'm just coming out and playing my heart out and having a lot of fun."
