Kansas State Head Coach Frank Martin Quotes

On putting together two solid wins ...

“I know that we have tough, strong willed locker room. They believe in who they are and who we are. Contrary to popular belief we lost three hard fought games and our guys didn’t hang their heads or feel like the world was coming to an end. They took it as a lesson and acted like I expected them to. They practice really well, built on our lessons and came out and played well.”

 

On tonight’s performance...

“We played good defense and shared the ball well on offense. We attacked on the transition and got everyone shots. We made every single open three and that is a heck of a recipe to win ball games.”

 

On tonight’s shooting numbers...

“As the season continues we will keep getting better. As we continue to learn when to shoot and when not to shoot those numbers will not be as skewed as today but they won’t be as bad as they were two weeks ago. Even thought the base of this system is the same as it was last year. We do different little wrinkles to try and score the basketball now and those guys are trying to understand what we do in practice and put it together in a game. We have obviously done a better job of that this week.”

 

On building off of tonight’s performance...

“This team has a lot of ability and potential. We are capable of playing along those lines. What does that mean as far as wins and losses? I have no idea but we have it in us to play similar to how we played tonight on a consistent basis. It is just a matter of learning and just continuing to grow.”
