"It's not just a Brittney Griner basketball team. That team is solid," Kansas State coach Deb Patterson said. "They're solid eight and nine deep. I don't think they get enough credit for that. ... They are a premier-caliber team with respect to their talent and the phenom of Brittney Griner."
"Griner changes the game, but she's not the only reason that they are exceptional," Patterson said.
