    ***WBB Gameday: ISU at KU***

    Big game. They're all big now. KU is 12-2 with a #38 RPI, #29 Coaches Poll, and #32 AP Poll. They're #1 in the nation in field goal shooting percentage and are a 12-point favorite over the Cyclones. Oh and they beat Texas in Austin. This would be a big win for our Twister Sisters and would build off the Baylor 'moral victory.'

    GO CYCLONES!

    Here is the scoop on KU. They score points...lots of points. Average in the mid 70's per game. That being said...they have yet to run into a team defense like ours until their last game AT HOME versus K-State. They were held to 57, their lowest output of the year. Outside of the win at Texas (who is suspect) they don't have any real big wins...just like we don't. Here is what could be scary for some teams. They have FIVE girls averaging double figures starting with Davis on the inside who is shooting a measly 65%! Our bigs are going to have to handle her without getting into foul trouble. Angel Goodrich is their biggest threat outside but has only made a total of 13 3's on the season. The VAST majority of the team's shots are inside the arc with those five all hitting nearly 50% of them. I'm making the assumption that they move the ball well and drive the lane on a regular basis. They are not quite as good a rebounding team as we are and are pretty close in free throw percentage (and attempts). We have shot THREE times as many 3 pointers as they have while only making twice as many. We need a hot hand there tonight. We actually have a better defensive field goal percentage than they do. They also are more prone to turn the ball over than we are.

    Seems the same keys to victory are there. Play defense. Rebound. Score inside and out. Make your free throws. Gee...sounds like what any team needs to do to win. The first is going to be the key to us staying in and hopefully winning this game and it is winnable.

    HUGE GAME. If the Twister Sisters are to make the NCAA Tourney this is a MUST WIN. Already lost one at home so need to steal one on the road and with A&M coming to Ames Sat. night. If they play with same intensity they did against Baylor we can still win a lot of games in this league.


    CF SURVIVOR 4 WINNER!

    Re: ***WBB Gameday: ISU at KU***

    It's amazing how bad these ref's are in this conference. They are just shoving us around, no calls.

    As great as Anna was last weekend, she's the other way tonight. Just slow so far.

    We just gave them 4 possessions on their end, by not rebounding. Crap.

    14-11 KU.

    BTW Zimmerman hit a 3 early. Streak stays alive. Good play for Anna there, and a foul +1.

    16-15 KU.

    We're up 6 at the half. 24-18. Big run for us. Pop's defense has been reaaly good.

    I'm glad they ended early or I wouldn't have turned my head to see Scott hit a half court 3 to end the half!!!!!!

    Yeah, it's all inside. I wish Hallie wouldn't be tenative, just shoot. We also need to get the entry pass in early in the offense. Kansas isn't deep and these fouls should add up.

    Moody is really struggling in my opinion. Her shot is just flat.

    Re: ***WBB Gameday: ISU at KU***

    After the timeout at 40-29 ISU, KU has come out very physical. Sutherland has 2 more fouls.

    Turnovers are killing us now. Mansfield is getting rebounds like crazy?

    Currently 11 assists on 15 FG. That's a good sign for the offense.

    Re: ***WBB Gameday: ISU at KU***

    Hallie drives the lane, drops a short pass to Pop, she draws Davis' 4th foul!!!!

    The lane is being left open for us, that's how Lauren can get these medium range rebounds.
