    I don't agree that this is a perfect match up for Baylor's defense. This article admits that they rotate slowly, and we have 3 point threats all around the perimeter.

    Love the publicity. Iowa State just can't go down there and lay an egg. Would be a great win and IMO gets us to the NCAA tourney.

    Brennan loves Iowa State and Royce. I think he would probably pick us in this game.

    Yeah I wish he would have explained that a little better. That's the opposite of what I was thinking. Offensively we'll be fine because they'll have trouble matching up with all our guards, but their height scares me when ISU is on D.

    Brennan should show some love to his own state. Good to see a Davenport Assumption kid writing for ESPN.

    Re: Big Monday: ISU at BU

    He definitely contradicts himself in the article. I see us as much like Mizzou in four guards and one big man than a traditional team. I could see us go a stretch with RW, Babb, CA, SC, and McGee. Giving up a lot on defense but could really light it up on offense if Royce is on his passing game tonight. The zone could also cause a few extra turnovers because of their length and Royce's tendency to try and force a little too much.

    Re: Big Monday: ISU at BU

    Allow offensive rebounds almost as frequently as Syracuse? Hmmmm. What does this Baylor team and Syracuse have in common?

    Could it be the zone defense which is always more difficult to effectively block out in?

    I have always seen Big Monday advertised by ESPN as the flagship station games. And trust me, watching Full Court allows you to see those commercials again and again and again and again.... Here they include the other games so I guess they consider those part of Big Monday, too. I will admit I was wrong.

    This is 100% my thought i as i read the analysis of Baylors problems defensively. My guess there should be some fake ball rotations and re-entry's to the post or drive penetration and get Jones on the bench....
