Kansas State Player Quotes

Senior Guard Lance Harris

On his feelings after the starters were replaced early in the game...

“I was ready to get back in and play.  We were falling behind, and I felt like we needed to come back in the game so we could help our team out.”

 

On Cartier Martin’s performance...

“At the end of the game he was really knocking down shots.  He had the hot hand, and he just stuck with it.  Coach was on him pretty hard and he fought it out.  He stayed with what he was doing and stayed focused with what he was trying to get done.”

 

On how the team has played so far this season...

“It’s very frustrating because we haven’t played our best game yet.  I think we’ve only played one game where we shot over 40 percent from the field.  We aren’t playing at the level we have been striving for.  We just aren’t playing our best ball yet.”

 

Senior Forward Cartier Martin

On his shooting performance...

“I knew I could make shots.  It’s all about my preparation.  I talked to Coach Huggins and he helped me out with the little things I was doing wrong.  He helped me get my shot back to where it once was.  I was comfortable in there tonight.  I know I can shoot; it’s just a matter of making them.”

 

On Coach Huggins’ decision to replace him early in the game...

“That’s just the way he coaches.  It’s a little frustrating not being out there at times, but you can’t afford to make mistakes if you want to be a good team.  It’s not something I’m used to, but in order for us to be a good team, we have to learn how to make fewer mistakes.”
