    Scouting the Jayhawks

    Very talented team, obviously, being ranked #3 in the country, should be a good task for CFH's squad. Here's what I know about the Jayhawks...

    Josh Selby- Very dynamic guard, likes to shoot the 3, can finish around the hoop, decent ball handling abilities.
    DEFENSIVE MATCHUP: Jake Anderson
    Marcus Morris- Hoss on the inside, great ability to finish around the rim, very physical.
    DEFENSIVE MATCHUP: Jamie Vanderbeken (see a lot of double teams)
    Brady Morningstar- Decent shooter, not a huge threat to go to the hoop, KU's best defensive player.
    DEFENSIVE MATCHUP: Scott Christopherson
    Tyrel Reed- Lights out shooter, decent speed, he will beat you from the outside.
    DEFENSIVE MATCHUP: Diante Garrett
    Tyshaun Taylor- Great speed, can get to the hoop, decent shooter.

    These are 6 main players that KU likes to use. Markieff Morris, is much like his brother, great inside game. Kansas is a very sound team, not many flaws to this Jayhawk team. I can see Iowa State playing a 2-3 zone, why?
    1) Keep the Jayhawks out of the paint, that is where they do there damage.
    2) Kansas has great depth, Iowa State does not. Keep the bodies fresh.

    Should be a great test for us, were not expected to win, obviously, but don't keep that out of the question. Kansas is a great team, but great teams can be beat.
    Let's Go Cyclones, hope to see everyone there tomorrow night, let's bring the Magic back starting tomorrow night.

    Re: Scouting the Jayhawks

    KU has a team that can be upset because their starters aren't as talented as last years but their strength is in their numbers. Johnson is probably better right now then Morningstar, shoots a better % and much more athletic. Robinson is probably the best rebounder on the team. Little is back and Releford is having a very good year. Withey lacks strength but as true 7 footer he will probably see action against teams that lack athletic post players. That's the bench and what gives KU an advantage against most teams. The key to an ISU victory will be slowing the game down and probably throwing in lots of zone and hope KU shoots as bad as they did against Michigan.

    The key to winning this game is simple. We have GOT to find a way to stop their dead ball 3-point offense.

    Re: Scouting the Jayhawks

    I assume Jake will guard Taylor and DG will take Selby? I like our chances of slowing those two guys down. Godfrey/Ejim/JVB and Railey are gonna have to play some scrappy defense and stay out of foul trouble with the Morris twins assignments. We NEED Scott to out-shoot Reed and Morning star my 10-15 I think.

    Re: Scouting the Jayhawks

    I'd prefer to see man to man at first, and slip into the zone if we are getting beat that way. Man to man is our bread and butter, and we're used to playing it. I also do not want to see KU trying to shoot us out of a zone, as I have flashbacks of GMAC years where other teams would light it up from out there.

    KU shot an awful 3-17 from three in Hilton last year, and we don't have Collins or Henry this year. If the Morris brothers and Robinson give your bigs fits, I would expect a zone early and often. We have too many players that fall in love with the three even when they're missing, so when they're cold it's best to pack it in down low. KU has the best FG% in the country because of points in the paint.

    Re: Scouting the Jayhawks

    I expect to see Godfrey vs. Morris Twins. JVB and Morris Twins. Ejim may guard to Marcus time to time since JVB maybe occupied with Marcus. This will be a tough matchup. If we make threes and cut down on turnovers, we have a chance to win.

    If Fred leaves Taylor unguarded all night, Cyclones lose.



    But seriously, I think this game is won and lost on the boards. KU will out rebound ISU, but by how much?

    Re: Scouting the Jayhawks

    Sorry 'Clones, we don't match up anywhere on the court.
    And we haven't seen defensive pressure on the guards like KU deploys - it will chew us up; especially if we try that 1-4 flat and try dribbling into that defense. They are so quick, some of our guys (Jamie) will be breathing vapor trails.....
