Guard Jabarie Hinds bemoaned what was a poor personal free throw shooting performance (1-of-6 from the line) and a few key errors that were all that separated West Virginia from a much-needed win over a quality opponent.
Kevin Noreen said the team's performance was better overall, but WVU still needs to get more production from Deniz Kilicli -- who he called perhaps the strongest big man in the Big 12 -- to beat the league's best teams.
Dominique Rutledge discussed the foul call that allowed K-State's Shane Southwell to make the game-winning free throws, the team's increased effort and its mindset after the loss.
Eron Harris said one of WVU's biggest problems has been its up-and-down nature emotionally. The Mountaineers were frustrated in the locker room, he indicated, and players must be careful not to get too down on themselves -- lest one loss lead to another.
