Opponent Quotes

Head Coach Keitha Adams

On key difference in the game...

“We had the lead and then we went on a stretch that seemed like forever, about a five minute stretch, where we didn’t score. That really killed us. We had some shots that were right in there that rimmed out. We didn’t finish off some trips to the bucket. That little spurt there where we didn’t score is what got us. They are going to score eventually, because you can’t continue to not score. They are a really good team that has great shooters. That stretch where we had a lid on the basket was a real turning point. If we could hit one or two of those shots then we would have gotten the lead there. We fought and battled, but they have a great team. It was quite a ball game. I think we left it all out on the floor tonight.”

 

Senior Guard Natasha Lacy

On tournament MVP Shalee Lehning...

“We tried to contain her and not let her get to the basket. When she gets to the basket she’s very creative, getting assists or trying to get a layup.”

 

On the start to the second half...

“In the first five minutes we tried to close the lead, and try to get it down to single digits. We kind of got up there but then we went through a five minute span where we weren’t scoring. We have to work on that and just put the ball in the basket.”

 

On improving from yesterday...

“I think today’s game was more competition than yesterday. I’m not trying to take anything away from Arkansas Pine Bluff but K-State is very good. They are known in the NCAA, they went to the WNIT last year. We had to execute, we can’t just go through the motions we have to execute our offense.”
