Kansas State Player Quotes

Senior Forward Marlies Gipson
On Kansas State having four players in double-digits...
“We had 19 assists, so I definitely like how we are sharing the ball right now. We are finding each other when we are open on the court and knocking down shots. ”

On the freshman...
“Everyday in practice they are playing and making a lot of improvement. They are learning from upperclassmen and when they get their reps in practice, they are just jumping in there and being intense. I think that heading into the Big 12, we cannot stress enough that you cannot take possessions off. There are several factors and when they get their time, they are starting to realize that you get one chance to go in there and work hard and show what you have.”

Senior Guard Shalee Lehning
On Kansas State having four players in double-digits...
“It is one of those things that shows the depths of this team. We have a lot of different people who can score a lot of different ways and that is something that we are going to have to use to our advantage this year. And if we can remain consistent and have four out of five or all five of us in double figures then that just adds to teams having to guard us defensively. You never know because any given night anyone can step up and have a great game. So if we keep doing that, we are going to be successful.”

On having a successful night driving in points...
“Any given game they guard you differently. I was just going with what they gave me and tonight there was obviously a little bit more of a lane, so I took it. Sometimes they take that away, but when they take my drive away, it opens up somebody else’s lane. When they take it away, they give you something. That is something we are working on seeing and we are taking care of it. ”
