Ford: “Kansas is one of the great teams in the country, and they’ve proven it all year long. You’re always going to miss a player like Embiid. He’s special. But they’ve got guys they can turn to and that can pick it up for them.  So we understand the challenge is going to be an incredible challenge.“ (Big 12 Sports)

Tubby Smith: “I just know that whatever issues Oklahoma State had, they corrected them. And when you have a great player like Marcus Smart … Travis is a very good coach, he understands what he has to do to get his team turned around, and he did. He got them playing hard. They went to more trapping and pressing, pressing and being more aggressive, and I think that was the key to their turnaround.” (NewsOK)
