    Re: Chris Allen

    He played great tonight not having to run the point. Remember Chris is a 2 guard having to learn the point. Imagine this team with a really good quick pg.... Next year Lucious will be that guy..

    Next year I smell elite 8 or final 4 and I don't think that is out of the question.

    Re: Chris Allen

    Really glad to see Allen go off tonight. Too bad we couldn't pull off the win.
    They need to bounce back for the next game.

    Re: Chris Allen

    Allen was clutch and a big factor to keeping us in the game. At the end, Nash was just better.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    the whole year next year comes down to a tournament finish? In a tournament anything can and does happen. We could finish with 25 plus wins and still lose in the second round. Wouldn't it still be a good year? I just hate it when people project or try to clarify how good of a year it is based on tournament results. The best teams don't always advance.

    Holy Smokes!!! I make fun of Hawk fans for predicting 1-2 losses every summer ahead of football season. This post ranks right up there with their idiocy

    Re: Chris Allen

    Just wanted to pop on here and give Allen some props for his hot shooting last night. Really kept the clones in the game.

    Fred please move Chris back to the point position with Scott and McGee switching at the off guard.

    Re: Chris Allen

    Yes, he was great. It does highlight the problem at the point, as both Chris and Scottie are WAY more effective at the 2, so whoever is running the point becomes less of a factor.

    AAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!

    Are fans really this stupid?

    As Freddie said on the post game show last night, Allen has played great basketball the last three games BECAUSE he took him off the point and as has felt much more comfortable and confident off the ball.

    Exactly. And the last 4+ games have shown that Scotty is much mentally tougher and able to handle the ups and downs of running the point better than Allen. We just went 3-1 through a really tough conference stretch, and I can't believe after the 1 loss people want to change up what's been working. It's mind-boggling.

    Re: Chris Allen

    So it seemed like Royce and CA scored the last 21 points for us. What happened to the others?


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.
    Let my Fred's Four Horsemen ride: Georges, Hogue, Nader, and McKay.

    Why is this idiotic? It's good to have goals.

    Re: Chris Allen

    It is obvious that both CA and Scotty are more comfortable playing off the point, which of course is the problem for this team. CA has just not played it before, and Scotty is just not a good enough ball handler to play that position.....and for both of them it obviously affects their shooting.

    It will be good to get Bubu back to give some minutes at the point, and hopefully the combination of CA, Royce, and Scotty at the point can continue to be successful.

    I also will predict this.......by the end of this season, many on here will realize just how much we are going to miss CA and Scotty next year........even with a point guard next year.
