Kansas State Player Quotes

Junior Guard Kimberly Dietz
On the contributing factors to the loss...
“We have some girls with injuries. We didn’t come out competing as hard as we could. We’re just going to watch film and figure out what we can do better, which is going to be a lot. We’re just going to go forward from here. That’s pretty much all we can do.”

 

Senior Guard Claire Coggins
On the contributing factors to the loss...
“I think it was a good test. It was our first time out in front of the fans and everything and we saw where our toughness was where we were mentally, physically and emotionally. At times we showed the character of a good Kansas State team, however, most of the time and the better part of the game we didn’t. I think we see and we know that it’s inexcusable and we have to change or games like this are going to continue for us and that’s unacceptable.”

 

Freshman Forward Ashley Sweat
On the experience of playing in her first game...

“I was kind of surprised coming out there getting in there right at the start. I can tell that I’ve improved a lot. I know looking at the film that we’re going to see everything we can work on as a team. It’s just the starting point for us and we can only go up from here. I guess that’s one of the good things that can come out of it.”

 

Sophomore Forward Marlies Gipson
On being looked to more on offense...

“Whatever the coaches need me to do, I’m looking to help out the team whether it’s shooting or rebounding. We just have to work as a team and when I get my chances, take them and hopefully finish for the team.”
