K-State Head Coach Frank Martin Quotes

On the state of the team...
"We are very selfish. When I refer to selfish, I am not referring to the two guards (Denis Clemente and Jacob Pullen). The new guys are doing what they think they need to do, and not what they are asked to do. I collect a salary for more than just wearing a suit on the sideline. We have got a heckuva staff and a core group of guys that we know we can trust."

On Jacob Pullen and Denis Clemente...
"Jacob (Pullen) is doing great. Some of those turnovers that he and Denis (Clemente) had were not their fault. I would say that five of their six turnovers were caused because they were being aggressive and doing what we ask them to do. The other three guys were just standing around and we need to get them on the same page."

On Jacob Pullen's 25 points and seven assists...
"That is what he brings to the table for us. He missed some gimme shots because he was more worried about contact and shot blockers, not about finishing the shot. Jacob has grown up tremendously. I love him because he wants to grow, and he wants to win. At the end of the day there is one trait that overcomes everything, and that is a desire to win."
