K-State Player Quotes

Senior Guard Clent Stewart

On the teams performance...

“We’re getting out there defensively. The last two games coach (Martin) put an emphasis on denying the passing lanes and good defense creates offense. Our last two games our defensive effort has been a lot better that the first part of the season.”

 

On Dominique Sutton...

“Dominique (Sutton) is a good defensive player and he is going to bring his a-game every time we practice or out on the court. He goes hard every game. He definitely brings intensity, and when Jamar (Samuels) gets in there we’ll see what he can do too. He (Jamar Samuels) is an athletic player that can get up and down the court and finish and draw fouls.”

 

On his last 3 games...

“I’m taking opportunities when the opportunity is there. At the beginning of the season I wouldn’t say that I wasn’t playing well, but coming off the injury things weren’t going as well as I would like. Now I’m fully recovered, and with Bill (Walker), Mike (Beasley), and Ron (Anderson) down low it opens up the outside game.”

 

Freshman Forward Bill Walker

On going to back to Cincinnati...

“We just have to go into this game (against Xavier) and focus on some things defensively like Clent (Stewart) said. We need to win this game to have a (good team) on our resume.”

 

On having five players in double figures...

“We’re attacking the rim. At first we weren’t shooting with a high percentage from three. We were shooting threes which wasn’t putting an emphasis on getting to the (basket). Now we’re just attacking the rim, and it’s getting guys open shots.”
