K-State Head Coach Quotes

Head Coach Bob Huggins

On the play of Cartier Martin...

“I told Wyatt on the radio that, if this was November, and you told me I’d be sitting here saying Cartier did a heck of a job defensively, I’d look at you like you had three heads. I thought he was really good. Defensively he was really good. He did what he does he made shots. I thought his overall game was terrific. That’s the best that I’ve personally ever seen him.”

 

On the first half...

“When you are aggressive, usually that happens. We’ve been too tentative at both ends of the floor. I thought we got good minutes from a lot of people. Serge (Afeli) gave us really good minutes. I was very pleased with what Serge did.”

 

On the chances of making the NCAA Tournament...

“All I’m saying is that I’m a believer in history. Historically, no team from a BCS conference has had 20-some total wins and double digit league wins and not gotten in. Why would they start with us? I don’t think they should start with us. If they’re going to start with somebody, do it next year.”

 

On playing in the Big 12 Tournament...

“I’ve never done anything in my life I didn’t want to win. I’m not asking them to go down there and win a game. I’m asking them to win three games. With three games, you get an automatic bid and you don’t have to worry about all that stuff.”

 

On the struggles of the second half...

“We lost our aggressiveness. We kind of started to stand around. You generally miss lay-ups and free throws when you’re not really focused on the game the way you ought to be.”
