Kansas State Player Quotes

Junior Forward Marlies Gipson

On the team’s performance...

“Obviously it was apparent we weren’t clicking. I can’t really put a finger on what it was. We weren’t all on the same page. We didn’t come to in with the competitive edge we needed to win today.”

 

On Baylor’s Defense...

“Baylor is a good defensive team. We need to find easier shots to take.  We weren’t playing as a team today, and we had to take a lot of tough shots because there was little time on the shot clock due to Baylor’s good defense.”

 

Junior Guard Shalee Lehning

On Kansas State’s performance...

“All due respect to Baylor - they are a very good team, and very athletic.  They have five players on the floor that play very well together. I think more of our issue tonight was the unit that we have been taking pride in that we have become, and our five players weren’t that tonight.  I will take the blame as the point guard.  This will be something we can learn from and hope to build on.”

 

On if it was the worst performance of year...

“It is up there with the worst performances of the year.  There were phases of the game that were the worst we have done all year.  We didn’t compete to the level we needed to compete, simple little things that we have been doing all year we didn’t do tonight.  This definitely goes down as one of the worst performances of the year for us.”
