    Royce White ESPN article (Front Page)on his anxiety disorder

    Iowa State's Royce White and the battle within -- college basketball - ESPN

    Good article. Might explain the free throws?

    Has been on the front page of the men's basketball page...

    Wow those are some great articles ... we sure are getting some good press; pretty amazing considering where we were just a few short years ago.

    Re: Royce White ESPN article (Front Page)on his anxiety disorder

    That gives me a whole new level of respect for Royce. I went through a period of that when the custody of my son was up in the air, and dealing with the uncertainty for a period of time after, and it's really hard to explain to anyone. I'd just wake up feeling nervous like I was about to give a speech in front of a huge crowd, even if I had no plans at all, or nothing real to worry about. And that was pretty much every minute of every day for quite some time.

    Good article and insight into Royce's struggles. Royce is a very cool when you meet him in person, I have ran into several times in Ames and he will always chit chat with you or just say Hi.

    Had no idea he was that close to signing with Kentucky. Think of the hype ESPN would be throwing out about him if he played for Kentucky.

    I thought about that but he may be lost in the fray. Love the guy as a Cyclone, major talent, but don't think he starts at UK with the current lineup.

    Re: Royce White ESPN article (Front Page)on his anxiety disorder

    I have lived with this same thing my entire life. My first one happened on a basketball court as well and I can never get back on the court and just feel comfortable. It is absolutely amazing how mentally strong this guy is. What he has overcome is simply amazing. He said he could not fly to Kentucky yet he went with the team to Italy to play. I will say this, having had this, it makes you stronger mentally than anyone you are around when you realize what you have overcome compared to others. Going from the feeling of dying to knowing you control your destiny is absolutely amazing. He is only going to get strong and more comfortable on the court and that's when things are gonna get scary for opposing teams.

    With his passing ability and those scorers around him he could make an impact. He isn't really playing much as it is because of foul trouble

    Re: Royce White ESPN article (Front Page)on his anxiety disorder

    Very interesting article......although, I happen to think Royce fits in just fine in Ames...

    Iowa State's Sukup Basketball Complex sits about a block off U.S. Highway 30 in Ames. The multimillion-dollar building's brick facade and glistening glass belie the cornfields scattered around it. It's a vivid contrast to the surrounding area's rural roots.

    White, who grew up in Minneapolis and St. Paul, doesn't seem to fit either.
    Not in the snug sweatsuit that tries to contain his imposing physique as he walks around his team's practice facility. Not in the middle of Iowa. Not in Cyclones colors.

    Really? I know Kentucky has much more talent than ISU, but Royce is a match up nightmare. I'm sure he would find his way in the starting lineup at Kentucky
