Maryland-Eastern Shore Head Coach and Player Quotes

Head Coach Larry Lessett

On the game...

“I am not taking anything away from Kansas State but my kids are a little snake bit. We usually do a little better job of taking care of the ball. I think it was more in the terms of not keeping our poise because if you look, we won the second half. We definitely did a better job the second half. We only turned it over 11 times in the second half. I feel real positive. I also think that Kansas State is going to win 20 games this year and make it into the NCAA Tournament.”

 

On K-State’s offensive surge late in the first half...

“That was the difference in the game, because if you think about it we were right there the whole time. If you break the game down, there was probably a six or seven minute span where we turned it over and that’s the difference. We didn’t keep our poise, which is attributed to the way Kansas State plays.”

 

Sophomore Guard Jesse Brooks

On the difference between playing Wichita State and K-State...

Wichita State just plays as a team. Nobody stands out on Witchita State. They really play together, but K-State is way more athletic.”

 

On the number of turnovers...

Their pressure got to us a little in the first half. We had 21 turnovers in the first half, so you have to give them (K-State) a lot of credit, but a lot of it was on us too because we made dumb decisions.”
