    UNI Basketball?

    What kind of talent do they have this year? I haven't gotten to watch them but their scores look pretty inconsistent..upset ODU, lost badly the next game to st marys. Beat Rice by only 4, then blow out Providence..going by the scores, I have no idea what to expect.

    Re: UNI Basketball?

    I think a big key to this game is going to be 3-point shooting for both sides.

    I think 3 point shooting will be key in all of our games. With our shooting ISU could upset a top 5 team one night and then lose the next night to a bottom feeder team. Gonna be a very interesting year.

    Play very good, help defense. They protect the middle, we should be able to get some open 3s. They will slow the game down. Providence tried to speed the tempo up but UNI worked half court offense and defense. Will be a challenge for us.

    Re: UNI Basketball?

    I think the biggest threat they pose to us is their discipline. We are going to have to play defense and avoid lazy passes, as we cannot afford to give them easy baskets all night. I think we also need to make them play our pace. If our offense is clicking, I don't think they can keep up.

    Re: UNI Basketball?

    The UNI game will be excruciatingly painful. I'm not saying we'll lose, but it won't be a fun game either way because UNI's style of play prevents teams from getting on any kind of a roll. They suck the life out of the game. We have more talent, but I'm concerned we won't have the patience and discipline to beat them on the road.

    I believe the game is in Jimmy H. Hilton.

    You are correct sir - my bad. That makes me feel better about the outcome. It still won't be easy though. As I said earlier, UNI's style of play sucks the life out of the game.

    Said this last night and I'm sticking to it. We'll win by 20+ or lose the game.

    Re: UNI Basketball?

    glad this game is in Hilton. I think this helps our chances greatly and I also hope our students show up to this game at least to provide some sort of atmosphere as there has been 0 atmosphere the last few games. I hope that provides the extra spark to ignite our offense against UNI.

    Hopefully we have great atmosphere as this game could really be a nice 'resume' game.

    Re: UNI Basketball?

    It will be very tough to win this game if we don't give good effort on defense. The final score will be close either way.


    Go Cyclones!!

    I doubt individually any one of those players could play in the NBA or even D-league possibly, but they have good coaching, and in college basketball, sometimes really good coaching is as good as really good talent.

    I would expect a team who knows how to execute the game of basketball as a team well. If we want to play to our tempo, we'll have to beat them at their own game of playing as a well oiled machine.

    Re: UNI Basketball?

    While they still prefer to slow it down, this UNI team can play up-tempo if they have to. This is the most athletic UNI team Jacobson has had while he has been in charge. On offense they really spread things out and look to attack from all over the court. They will penetrate and kick for a lot of 3 pointers and none of the guards are afraid to shoot it (thats putting it mildly). Defensively, they play the same tough defense, but they are rather small this year (excluding Pehl), especially the guards. Should be an entertaining game.

    Re: UNI Basketball?

    It's not gonna be a fun one to watch. The main word with UNI is discipline. Not great individual players and they don't excite you which can lull a team to sleep. But as a unit they cover a lot of the floor and won't stop at the 1st shot offer, they work it around until they get their shot. They can wear you down mentally. If we keep our heads about us and play unselfish ball along with keep hitting 3's somewhat like we have been we have a good chance.
