Post game quote: "We were slow defensively and they certainly exposed that. We didn't rebound the ball well. Other than that, I thought we executed very well offensively. We got great shots. We executed out of timeouts well and got some good baskets when the game was on the line. We needed to play a game that was close, so this was good for us." - Bill Self

Post game quote: "K-State is a real good team. They have some good personnel out there, they took us to the wire. We stepped up and made some big free throws down the stretch and we pulled it out. Wayne (Simien) played well, Jeff Graves played real good and that was key." - Mike Lee
