Too many overreactions in this thread, this team is not THAT bad. Just like last years team we need to gel, give them time. I see flashes of greatness in some players(McGee, Lucious, Clyburn, and Ejim especiallly). These early tests are good for them, we'll be ready to roll the B12 come conference season time, give them some time to learn from this.
We are still better than we were at this time last year. I think we have the pieces, we just need to get better.
Terrible shooting, terrible officials, Gibson plays terrible defense, lots of turnovers.
Great rebounding (especially offensively), Good FT%, Good defense with Booker in.
That pretty much sums it up.
Tonight might as well be an extra game in the loss column with how bad we beat ourselves..
That being said, this is some of the worst officiating I've seen in a long long time.
Just as a reference on all of this foul talk. Through the first 5 games Iowa State averaged 16 fouls per game; while the opponent averaged 19 fouls per game.
Tonight Iowa State has 22 fouls; UNLV has 13 fouls.
Biggest differentials tonight were FG%, free throws and total assists.
Lmao. We lose two games to two top 20 teams and all of a sudden we aren't a tourney team.
Some people, man...
Look. We are WAY ahead at this time this year compared to at this time last year. It's not close. And we still have a long ways to go. We'll be fine.
Usual posters overreacting as usual. So far this year we have lost to 2 rated teams. Last year we lost to Drake. Calm down people.
Clyburn has talent. He will be our best all around player this year but you can tell he's pressing right now. Still you don't get over 13 rebounds in a game as a 6'7 player unless you are working your tail off.
Why do we have so many drama queen clones?
