"I thought Kansas State outplayed us for 40 minutes," Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said. "This is one of the many challenges in the first year, you're just trying to build something. Some days it looks pretty good, some days it doesn't. We'll just get back to work."
"We basically couldn't guard them in the first half," said Red Raiders coach Chris Beard. "So in the second half, we got very aggressive, and basically played a defense that tried to take out Forte and Carroll and tried to make other people beat us. From their point of view, I thought they panicked a little bit and made some mistakes, and that was good enough to get us back in the game."
