K-State Head Coach Frank Martin Quotes

On Curtis Kelly's performance...
"He grabbed one defensive rebound. That is not a very good performance in my opinion. He made layups; I can make layups."

On why the rebounding was a problem...
"We stunk. No disrespect to Loyola because their kids played their hearts out. They grabbed 25 offensive rebounds. We were the worst team in the country yesterday in practice and we deserved to play as bad as we did. I hope we got embarrassed by it. It was the worst practice I have been associated with since I have been coaching basketball."

On the defense late in the first half...
"Their point guard got into foul trouble - that is why we looked better. They had to play without a point guard and they had trouble handling that initial pressure. We tried to play a little harder in the second half, but we were not any good."

On whether the Puerto Rico trip was distracting...
"I could care less. We have got to get better to play on Sunday. Puerto Rico could disappear as far as I am concerned."

On how the team will prepare with the quick turnaround...
"We better be better tomorrow in practice because if not it will be a long Saturday."

On what he was happy with tonight...
"Victor Ojeleye and Chris Merriewether. Those are two guys who are consist with their approach everyday and they came out and played that way."
