    I hope Fred puts more emphasis on D in the future.

    He's a young coach. He will hopefully learn from this season, that if you can't play D, you'll always be asking yourself "what just happened" at the end of these games.

    You let the opposition gain confidence when they score every time down the court. Teams that can't score, seem to have record nights against us.

    If you look at the games we've lost in the B12, we played extremely well offensively and hit a crazy amount of 3's in most of our losses. But at the end of the game, we can't get a stop and they opposition can.

    Our D isn't great but its OK. We've been extremely unlucky to lose 3 of the conference games we've lost. We do need a legit interior defender though, I will agree there. You can't always play with 6'7 and 6'6 PF/C combos.

    Nope, I hope he keeps doing what he is doing.
    Did you hear the entire halftime crew talk about how they would love to play for the Mayor. He is doing great things at ISU. Close losses shouldn't cloud that!
    You don't normally get the bad bounces in every close game like they have this year.

    Letting a poor outside shooting team like KU knock down 54% overall and 52% from three in your own building won't win you many of those games, regardless of what the refs are calling.

    Re: I hope Fred puts more emphasis on D in the future.

    His teams will never be filled with defensive studs. Teams at ISU will have the mentality that we are going to outscore you and if you bring it down to the wire with us, we will outscore you at that point too.

    Our style is our style. It works better when we aren't playing 5 on 8.

    I hope agclone puts more emphasis on not making dumb threads after games in the future.

    That was all one player...jeez...


    But you're right - we do lack D, but I think a lot had to do (especially in OT) with the fact that after that sh1tty call on Niang the guys didn't even try to play tough for fear of getting called for looking at KU sideways.

    ISU's unique style of basketball is great for them right now. Ejim is great, but ISU simply just needs to win some games so they can recruit those 6'8" and 6'9" guys that can fit their system on offense and defend the interior on defense. Also, getting HS kids in the program for 3-4 years will help the defense, I think.

    I think the plan is great. No need to change. The offense is beautiful. They'll get there. That was an exhibition tonight. Should've been a win if life was fair.

    Yeah, I hope he call McDermott for a few pointers--boy I really miss those days. Those thrilling 51-48 grind it out games. Yeah, that's really what we need

    Re: I hope Fred puts more emphasis on D in the future.

    Just counted, in the 4 conference games where Iowa State has been ahead or within 1 possession with 2:00 to go, we have 4 stops in 4 games. We get 1 stop per game inside 2:00. You won't win basketball games that way.

    There's never been an elite eight team with a kenpom def efficiency >30. Ours is >100. Long term we have to improve d if we want to get to the level we all want.
