Wagner Quotes

Head Coach Mike Deane

On the start of the game...

“They made every shot they took, and give them credit. That can’t happen to start off a game. To be honest with you we are starting a small lineup and we had trouble inside. Our inside guys didn’t score much. We let down on the perimeter, and that is where our strength is defensively. It is a miss match.”

 

On what he thinks K-State’s strengths are...

“I think they are very good offensive rebounding team and they have good team speed. In hindsight I might have played things a little differently had I been a little bit more aware of their team. They have good team speed and they go hard to the boards. I think it will be interesting to see how they far in the Big 12. I met with somebody that said they were the biggest disappointment in the Big 12. I think they are a little bit better than that. They waxed pretty much everyone they played at home, including us today. They play pretty solid defense and rebound well and they are physical team. I like (K-State’s) team.”

 

Guard Joey Mundweiler

On scoring 1000 career points ...

“It is a privilege to be able score a 1,000 points, especially against K-State, so close to home for me. Unfortunately, the outcome wasn’t what I would have liked but it was my last go around.”

 

On the slow start...

“It just didn’t seem like it was going to end. They didn’t miss any shots to start the game, and when you are playing against a good team like K-State you have to hope they miss those open shots early and let us get into a rhythm. They hit their shots, and you have to give to them, they came out ready to play and they didn’t take us for granted at all.”
