    A Change

    I'm just now getting to see yesterday's game.

    I think it's fair to say that one impressive change for this team is that the guys are understanding now how to play with Royce White.

    It seems like they anticipate his passes much better, and they understand his vision on the offensive end. A game is really interesting with Royce White in there.

    Royce-A-Mania is running wild right now!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Seeing his passes in person yesterday made my jaw drop at times. Just crazy how he could deliver.

    Very good job communicating on the floor by the entire team.

    Re: A Change

    I thought about a complaint thread off of the triple-double, along the lines of "if he did it yesterday, he should have done it 17 times already." I thought that had some odd potential.

    It looks like EVERYONE is figuring out their role an playing together much more smoothly. Chris Allen is being more patient and not forcing things, Babb is taking good shots and making them now, Ejim and Gibson are being active around the basket, making their lay-ups and rebounding, Mcgee is drving when the defense over plays and will probably get more looks from 3 in the future. Booker is rebounding, playing much better defense and knocking down open shots. There is finally some flow to the offense and we are getting easy shots inside and out. On top of that, they are finally playing good team defense. I thought they defended pretty well against Texas, but couldn't get rebounds.

    It is impressive how much better they have looked the last 2 games than ANY game this year. Hopefully they don't take a step back and continue to get better.

    I'm just a little ****** he isn't working harder defensively in the rebounding and steals areas. A quadruple double isn't too much to ask for.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    That one hand - underhand pass to someone underneath the bucket (believe layup was missed) was one of the best and most unique passes I have probably ever seen from the top of the key.

    Such a unique skill set.

    His quadruple-double has to be with assists, rebounds, blocks and steals.

    Getting a quad-dub that contains scoring -- that's just so cliche.

    Yep his assists are crazy good, and could look better if the people he was throwing them too would pay attention.

    That was the main one I was thinking about. Just crazy. I'll have to watch my recording of the game again.

    This is a good point.

    C'mon, Royce! Break some new ground! Do something legendary, not some boring quadruple-double!!!!

    They were the last game. Just had trouble finishing at times.

    Re: A Change

    Yesterday is an example of just how difficult this team could be for opposing teams. That 8-10 minute.stretch in the first half was insane. Everybody was scoring and RW facilitated:

    - Gibson's reverse layup on an incredilbe pass from RW
    - Scotty's jumper from the top of the key, curling around RW
    - Babb's bomb, another drop off from RW
    - Allen's up and under
    - Another Gibson reverse layup...another incredible pass from RW
    - Booker's 3
    - McGee's 3

    Reid Gettis and the old dude were dumbfounded. It was very fun to watch...3 times.

    Edit: How could I forget about the skip pass to Babb for another bomb? A&M had no answer, and they knew it early on.

    Yeah I agree aTm was the first game where they actually would pay attention to his passes.
