Postgame Quotes

Kansas 11, Wichita State 2

Wichita, Kan. – May 4, 2011

Kansas Head Coach Ritch Price

On the victory over Wichita State Wednesday:

“I’m proud of the way we’ve rebounded (from last weekend). I think that speaks volumes about how much this team has matured during the course of the season. We’ve grinded everyday of the season. We were offensively challenged early in the year, but to come down here and have everybody contribute is pretty special.”

On the offensive nights by Ka’iana Eldredge and Casey Lytle:

“I’m really proud of the progress that Ka’iana has made. He’s playing like a freshman All-American right now. We’re talking about a guy who was hitting like .145 before we started Big 12 play and I think he’s like .290-something in the conference. He’s improved each and every week. Casey Lytle has been one of our two best players all year. It’s a pleasure to see how much he’s improved in the four years he’s been here.”

On saving the bullpen for the weekend series with Oklahoma:

“We had Thomas Taylor on a three-inning maximum and then Wally (Marciel) really picked us up. For him to walk out there and go four innings really gave us a chance to rest our bullpen and give Colton (Murray) and (Frank) Duncan a night off, it really sets us up for the weekend series at Oklahoma.”
