K-State Player Quotes

Senior Guard Blake Young
On Coach Martin’s comments...
“He was right about everything he said. We have to come into practice Monday and work hard to get better. There is going to be some hard games down there in Orlando...We won, but he wasn’t happy. We have to come back and get better because the teams we are playing next are real good teams. In order to beat them we are going to have to play as a team and keep working.”

On the quality of opponents...
“We should be focused on anybody we play. I wouldn’t say we weren’t focused. We didn’t execute, but that’s not all that goes into not being focused. We missed a lot of shots. We are young like coach said. Sometimes it’s like that, we just have to keep working hard at it and it will come eventually.”

Senior Guard Clent Stewart
On the game...
“We came out and started pretty well but we hit a slide where our motivation and enthusiasm was down. They got back in the game and we didn’t have that enthusiasm that we came out with in the beginning. We have to play but we have to play hard. Every possession is a big possession.

On the maturity of the team ...
“Obviously we are really young. We are not playing together or getting the feel of the game together, it’s just not there yet. You can tell the offense is stagnant. As we continue to play together and learn off of each other and feed off each other then I think our shots will start to fall.”
