    Decision making...Freshman Blues

    I am a little discouraged on some decisions on fast breaks. Ejim mainly is really hesitive on open drives. Jake even made some bad choices. Ejim also had the same travel that happened twice last game...starts at the rim before he dribbles.

    Those fast break turnovers are mind boggling.

    Re: Decision making...Freshman Blues

    I'll take the win, but our team is capable of doing quite a bit this year. At the beginning of the year they gave full effort for 40 minutes, The last 4 or so games they play 30-35, fortunatly Scotty is playing 200%. So you go to Hawk whatever I'm a Cyclone and have never been to those sites, rather discuss our team with Cyclones.

    I think OP has a legitimate concern, because there's some sloppiness and also a tendency to start the break before anyone actually secures possession. But a lot of that is also a growing-pains issue. And at least we're running a fast break now. That in itself is encouraging.

    I like the word "hesitive."

    If we had finished a normal amount of plays or hit a nomal amount of shots in the first half we'd have won going away. If Iowa did the same in the second they woulda kicked us.It was a wonderful win but kind of a sloppy and inconsistent game.And the refs did miss some things,but I thought that went both ways, so for a road game that's ok.

    We won. If we win the rest of the games we're supposed to and then upset Virgina, that already exceeds expectations.

    Rahshon Clark did that a lot too in his early years...it later got corrected and he became quite a fantastic dunker. of course we know their will be growing pains, Ejim wasn't gonna step in and play Craig Brackins-JR season style right away. He is just a freshman and way ahead of the learning curve imo.

    Re: Decision making...Freshman Blues

    If you're going to really push the ball, sometimes you are going to take it into situations where you don't have the advantage, and sometimes you are going to turn it over.

    I'll take some aggressive mistakes for all of the advantages that come from it.

    Re: Decision making...Freshman Blues

    I thought both teams were a little sloppy and careless with the ball, but that's to be expected considering all the young players and new philosophies being installed on both sides. I'm just happy ISU got a tough road win. Much better things are ahead for ISU and Iowa.

    The foot on the sidelines turnover always makes me extremely mad. There is not excuse for that. It happened so many times last year and last night DG did it. Our senior pt guard should not make that mistake.

    I agree 100%. Too many good fast break opportunities resulting in zero points. Shot selection at times could be better and the unforced turnovers simply have to stop. One other area that showed a lapse is blocking out. Two many times Iowa got around ISU and got to the ball at the rim.

    Re: Decision making...Freshman Blues

    Our style of play leads to stuff like this. You call ******* and complained when we played boring basketball, so you need to accept the turnovers now.

    The freshman will learn, but it will take time (and losses).

    I thought Ejim played fine. Sure there were a couple of spots, but he also ran the floor very well other times. I'm not worried or discouraged at all. Ejim is going to be a great player.

    Re: Decision making...Freshman Blues

    I'm more worried with Anderson, he took it to the hoop too soon at the end of the first allowing them to go down and get a lay up o end the half. Then at the end of the game when it should be out killing clock he dribbles in out of control and gets bailed out by the refs no call. His decision making has been suspect at best the last couple of games.

    He's an effort player, and a senior. He's also in his first year here, and yet is forced by situation to provide leadership. I love the way he plays, and I think he will calm down a bit as the season progresses. Without question, we need someone of his mentality on the floor.
