"I have had some questions about K-State, and from a coaching standpoint one thing I can tell you is that I admire Coach (Frank) Martin and I will tell you why I admire him. There have been a lot of adjustments to their line-ups this season but for them to always compete and play hard, if you want to know where this program is at I remember doing media here before but I only saw some of you here, but now he is doing a great job with this program. This is a very tough place to play and is always going to be a physical game. I was proud of our defensive effort and I felt like we needed to do a better job on the boards. They are the best at rebounding and we know we had our hands full with it. At the end of the day they were better than us tonight. I know that it was a big game for them and a big game for us."
On K-State's defense...
"They are very good defensively. They take you out of what you normally do and it is tough to prepare for because they guard different than most teams that we face and it is really tough to have 24 hours to simulate that. I was proud of the way that we responded in the second half. We really shot the ball and played a lot better. I thought that Stargell Love did a great job playing a lot of minutes for us tonight in a tough environment."
On physical nature of the game...
"I love when both teams are physical out there and at the same time they did a good job from the free-throw line and we needed to do better at the free-throw line. I thought it was a well officiated game and I thought that it was a competitive game."
On Jacob Pullen's defense...
"He is one of the best defenders in the Big 12. He did a good job. Whatever their plan was, he stepped up and was the leader of his team and doing his role. He was playing good defense, which he has been all year."
On flow of the game...
"We did a great job of executing and rebounding but I guess we let it slip away. We got out of what we do best. They stepped their play up and kept executing. We need to learn how to keep a lead and how to get back into a game."
