In the wake of Thursday’s way-too-close victory over Presbyterian, Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin talked a lot about leadership.
Right now he doesn’t think the Wildcats have much of it.
“We’re the most immature team I’ve ever coached,” Martin said. “Great team. Great kids. But we’re the most immature team I’ve ever coached.”
After watching an uninspired effort that led to a 76-67 victory over the Blue Hose, he labeled junior walk-on Victor Ojeleye as the best leader on the roster and said what the Wildcats’ locker room needed most right now was the return of Luis Colon.
Not even senior guard Jacob Pullen is apparently doing his part.
“Jacob was great early,” Martin said. “He hasn’t been lately.”
