    Phillips a no go against Iowa

    Any updates on his status I believe I saw him in warm-ups. Bubu played a bit but no Phillips. I think we need good minutes out of him going forward.

    Re: Phillips a no go against Iowa

    He's either getting out of the doghouse or will be gone at semester.

    My guess is the latter, but we'll see.

    Who would you have subbed out to get Phillips in?

    Re: Phillips a no go against Iowa

    All I can say is that we are darn lucky that Uncle Jake transferred in and could play right away. Phillips looks like a complete bust.

    So in a tight rivalry game on the road, you're taking out either a senior guard or a guy who's shooting like he found the sweet spot in "Double Dribble" just so the #9 can get some self-esteem minutes?

    To this point, that is 100% true. Juco's are suppose to be ready...he is not.

    Re: Phillips a no go against Iowa

    I think you rotate players, keep them fresh. Phillips can ball, but i'm not sure that the reason he isn't playing is skill related. Phillips is as good a talent if not more talented than Bubu and he got playing time. But i'm not referring to self-esteem minutes he needs meaningful minutes.

    And you'd know he's the better talent how? He hasn't done squat in a Cyclone uniform.

    None of that necessarily means he can do what's necessary within the framework of the system the staff has put in place.

    He needs to earn his time on the court, and I'll trust the coaching staff to know when he has. Whether it's a matter of practice, classwork, or attitude, I'm betting Phillips needs to make some changes in what he's doing. He's the #5 guard on the team right now for one (or more) of those reasons.

    I'm sure the injury slowed him down, but it doesn't seem like he's done much to endear himself to Fred so far.

    Re: Phillips a no go against Iowa

    I would really like to know the whole story. Theres got to be more out there, he got minutes early in the year even after the injury, then the mystery staying home to study, only to play a few minutes the next game, then nothing.

    I'll just trust the coach on this one. Bubu > Phillips.

    Re: Phillips a no go against Iowa

    We need him heading into the big 12...I hope he is ready to go...

    Did he play in the CAP city league? Cause I thought I remember C-dub was talking about him doing pretty well...

    Everyone looks like an NBA player in the Cap City League. There's no one playing defense!
