Third quarter run not enough for K-State on Sunday

About Texas Tech’s offensive success

“Just pass it to the open player. I mean if they found the open player we were slow against her. Gerlich came in good, you know she’s coming from a game where she was four out of six out of three. So we were terribly slow to that rotation to her.”

On K-State’s defensive approach to Bre’Amber Scott

“She schooled us in Manhattan. We didn’t want to get her to the free-throw line. We did well in the first half, not so much in the second half. But you know, Gerlich is definitely hurting us. I thought the player in the second half Maupin was in the part where we hit the back, Maupin seemed to make every move, so credit to them and credit to her.

On defense

“If you ask me if I’m happy with our defense, no, I’m not happy with our defense. I’m not happy with our rotations. I’m not happy with those things now. I want to take something away for Texas Tech. They do some good things so give them credit for capitalizing on what i thought we were slowly rotating if they don’t make the right game they don’t burn you so credit to them for making the right game .”
