You can thank Levi for the following transcript from Frank Martin’s Wednesday teleconference call. Yours truly was being told his eyesight has gotten worse – this a day after setting up an appointment to have my wisdom teeth extracted. But enough about my problems.
By the way, there was no mention of David Hoskins, who may or may not have some ailment.
On the starters:
"I’m not sure yet. I don’t even know if the five we put out there yet as the starting five on Saturday would be the starters for us. We’re not at that point yet. We’re still figuring things out."
"Yeah, we’re all right. Clent Stewart is still battling a little bit of a hamstring deal, but we’ll be fine."
On the young guys:
"That’s exactly why Tom Crean agreed to play us again. It meant so much to us, because there’s a group of guys who have never been in college basketball before. To go out and play such a talented team like Marquette, it only helps you. It prepares you for what the Big 12 is like every single night. It’s an experience that probably only benefits."
Limited to one exhibition or could you play two?
"If you have a scrimmage, then you can only play one."
What do you want from this game?
"It’s always important to see 18 year old kids and how they react in front of 13,000 people. There’s always something. That will be one thing, and the other is just to continue to focus in on the things we’ve been practicing and to continue to see progress on our strategies and how we need to play as a team. All those things are always important. It’s a little different running your practice in front of nobody and having to do the same things in front of 13,000 people."
OK, that’s that. Also, I may have something else, recruiting-related, later tonight – if I get called back. Next couple of days have the potential to be interesting here at K-Stated. Keep coming back – you won’t be disappointed.
