Colorado Player Quotes

Junior Guard Richard Roby

On losing the game...

“They got a lot of rebounds and second-shot opportunities.  They were more physical than we were today.  But we have to bounce back, we have another test coming up.  We can’t hold our heads down for too long.” 

 

On Kansas State’s defensive play...

“Akeem (Wright) is one of the best defenders in the league.  They cut off all the driving lanes today.  They were playing well defensively as a team they would step in and take a charge if it was there.  In the second half they played much harder on defense.  I got frustrated.  I needed to take better shots.  I think I was forcing too many shots tonight.”

 

On losing on the road this year...

“The other teams would go on scoring runs.  We couldn’t match their runs.  Then, they would go on another run, and we still couldn’t match it.”

 

On how Kansas State plays under Coach Bob Huggins...

“They play a lot more physical this year.”

 

Freshman Guard Xavier Silas

On committing turnovers...

“I wasn’t focusing, and the team wasn’t either.  I think I was just trying to force the ball to my teammates and take what the defense gave me.”

 

On losing on the road in the Big XII...

“That is just something we have to grow up and fix.  I think it’s mental once the crowd gets into the game it really affects us.”
