K-State Player Quotes

Junior Guard Jacob Pullen

His thoughts on the game...
"We could not put them away at the end. They are a very underrated team. They have a lot of athletes and players that can shoot the ball. We played a lot of minutes today so we were pretty exhausted at the end but that is something that we are working on in practice. "

On whether IUPUI surprised him...
"We knew that they were a very explosive team. They shot the ball well and we knew they were going to, so we needed to score our points in bunches. Our scouting report was to keep the pressure on them and not throw the ball away. When we did not do that, they were successful."

On the teams' injuries...
"Injuries happen every day. As a team, I know injuries can affect a season. We practice hard every day and we get treatment after every practice. You do not sit out of practice if you injured because then you cannot prepare. If you do not prepare well, you do not play well." 

Junior Forward Dominique Sutton

On Jacob Pullen's performance...
"That is Jacob Pullen being Jacob Pullen. He gets to the basket and makes things happen on the offensive end to get everyone going. "

On his improvements thus far...
"The first couple games I was not in it mentally. My knee kind of slowed me down in the off-season but I have just been working hard in practice which has made me work hard in the games."
