    Up Next: Virginia/Predictions

    Next up we have 8-4(1-0) Virginia @ Virginia. This is going to be our hardest non-conference game. Virginia has had three solid road wins in Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Virginia Tech. But they also just lost to a bad Seattle team. If we can get pressure on thier guards then i don't think we will have a problem keeping this game close. Here is my prediction.


    ISU-74
    Virginia-71

    I think we keep it close but come away empty handed. This team has showed they can play pretty solid basketball but hasn't proved yet they can beat anyone good on the road. Only road game was Iowa, which isn't exactly a long jounrey. I think the first trip outside of Iowa is going not going to be kind to the Cyclones.

    ISU - 75
    Virginia - 80

    * I hope I am wrong and think we can win this with a bit more solid ending to the game than we had at the end of the Cal and UNI game. Let's do it!


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: Up Next: Virginia/Predictions

    A legit D-1 team on the road? My guess is we lose by 10-15 and have trouble scoring.

    Virginia - 76
    ISU - 64

    Sometimes they play like a legit D-1 team, other times they play like a flaming pile of dog poo. It all depends on which Virginia team shows up, the one that beat Minnesota on the road or the one that lost to Seattle at home.

    If we get the team that won at Minnesota:

    Virginia 80
    ISU 67

    If we get the team that lost at home to Seattle:

    ISU 68
    Virginia 63

    Re: Up Next: Virginia/Predictions

    The way they have been playing recently I like our chances. Seems like we give a consistent effort too, so I feel like we know what to expect out of our team...only question is will the shots drop. If they do, I feel like this is a team we can beat by double digits.

    Re: Up Next: Virginia/Predictions

    ISU 81, Virginia 78. But here's the kicker, the game goes into OT and we pull out a tough one on the road.

    Don't know why I think that, I just feel like its about time for an OT game.

    Re: Up Next: Virginia/Predictions

    Hope we win this one, I don't know much about VA but I love the way Hoiberg has our guys playing. I love going to the games, it's fun to watch and even if we lose it will still be fun to go to the games and cheer them on. They seem to have a lot of fun playing the game now more than they did under McDoormat.

    Re: Up Next: Virginia/Predictions

    Virginia also likes to run from what i have seen...that favors us. They may have as good as athletes as us. We just have to be drilling threes unless JVB can go off for 15+ points down low. I don't see JVB doing that.
