Kansas State Head Coach Quotes

Head Coach Deb Patterson

Opening Statement  ...
"I think it goes without saying that that was a tremendous game by Kelsey Luna. Tonight we obviously didn't do the job defensively against Indiana State. Their entire team played with a great deal of aggressiveness, and I thought they really came in here and brought a confident game to the floor. For a very young team to come on the road and compete the way they did is impressive. They dominated us in every facet of the game tonight with the exception of the last five minutes of the game."

On Kelsey Luna's Performance...
"We knew that Luna was a high quality player and scored the ball well during the preseason. We really let her line it up tonight which is extremely disappointing and that is something that we will have to learn from as well as every other play in the basketball game."

On the slow start...
"I was wondering when we were going to bring something effective to the offensive end of the floor for pretty much three quarters of the first half. It took us way too long for us to get on track offensively. I am not sure we ever really put it together compared to the level of the first two exhibition games. I think our focus was not what it needed to be which is disappointing because I thought we really had a good crowd tonight. There were a lot of mistake and wasted possessions early in the basketball game while we were giving up easy baskets on the defensive side of the floor."
