Kansas State Player Quotes

Senior Guard Akeem Wright

On the teams defensive play...
“The last 15 minutes of the Colorado State game is what we wanted to build on. We have seen what we can do when we come out and defend, and force turnovers to get them out of their offense. That is what we came out tonight and did.”

 

On the teams preparation...

“We had two good practices this week. We talked about playing defense, forcing turnovers, swinging the ball. The two losses taught us a lot of things about what we can’t allow to happen. We just wanted to come out tonight and get a win. We definitely want to get up on Saturday and get another win.”

 

Junior Forward David Hoskins

Senior Froward Cartier Martin

On coming out strong in the first half...

“The first half definitely set the tone for the rest of the game. We are trying to build off the last 15 minutes of the Colorado State game. We tried to jump on them early and we kept staying on them.”
