    ***Mizzou Predictions***

    Another big game. What I like about this game is we can take it easy(as fans). We are already in the dance. This win would just help our resume and seeding. It also wouldn't hurt us if we lost. It's a win, win. That being said................


    ISU-72
    Mizzou-71

    Chris Allen goes off for 22 points.

    Re: ***Mizzou Predictions***

    This is a tough one for me to call. I've seen Misery play good enough to beat anybody in the country and I've seen them play less than stellar. I gotta think we'd be more motivated than them with the lack of respect/trying to prove themselves after giving Misery the win last time.
    Either way, despite the fact that I don't need to worry about tournament chances here, I'll still be cussing at the TV regularly haha.

    I'll go with....

    Misery 78
    Iowa State 74

    (Usually, when I bet against us, we win.)

    Edit for an additional thought:
    I really want to win this one so we can finish a game above Baylor after we beat Baylor. I know, I know..regardless of how this game goes, if we beat Baylor we get 3rd place, but I can see the media downplaying it since it was just a "tie". I don't know, maybe it's the Cyclone fan in me.

    If we win this game I think we have a very good chance at being a 5 or 6 seed in the NCAA Tourney.

    Re: ***Mizzou Predictions***

    Gonna be a tough game to win. Mizzou has their backs against the wall, with two losses in a row. They'll be out for blood, but I think the Road Dogs will give them all they want. That said, being the homer I am...ISU 74, MU 72. Scotty w/ a 3 at the buzzer.

    Re: ***Mizzou Predictions***

    You know how so many times a team comes from 10-15 down to tie up the game then immediately lets out a big sigh of relief? Then the other team jumps on them and they are immediately down by 8 in about a minute and a half.

    I'm afraid getting the concensus of being in the tournament might be like that for this team. I'm fearing a letdown.

    I'm going 78-62 Misery.

    Hope I am woefully wrong, but I have been a Cyclone fan for too long and seen too much.

    Re: ***Mizzou Predictions***

    Like KSU, I think we might be catching them at a good time. KSU because they had two great road wins and probably were not 100% focused. MU because they just choked a 19 point lead to blow the conference against their hated rival.

    They will either come out for blood, or still be out of sorts.

    I think MU is a very difficult matchup for us. The over/under on combined ISU turnovers and MU steals is likely going to be about 20. Unless we counter that with great 3 point shooting, I don't see it.

    MU 76
    ISU 70

    Come back home and beat Baylor to top off a 3rd place finish in the Big 12!!!

    Re: ***Mizzou Predictions***

    Would love to see ISU win this game. All depends on the attitude right now of the team, and if they come out and are ready to play. I'm a little concerned that now that it appears they are in the NCAA, they will let up. I hope not.

    If they can come out and do a better job on the boards, and reduce the number of possessions MU has, they can win this game. MU beat ISU badly on the boards at Hilton......and there really is no excuse for that with ISU's height and depth advantage.

    I think it will be either a blow out for MU or a close win for ISU. I will pick a close win.

    I feel like this team is a little more hungry than that. I don't think they will let up. This team hates losing and they don't care if they are an NCAA Tourney team right now or not.

    Re: ***Mizzou Predictions***

    I think the Road Dawg Clones are TUFF AS RAIN!!

    76-72 ISU

    /setting down the kool-aid...

    Realistically I think we have a real chance in any match up. I could see the Clones up 5 or less at half, but I just don't see them maintaining when Misery goes on the usual 15-2 run in the second half and I think we probably loose by 6 (only compounded by late freethrows)

    All in all I see a similar game as @KU.

    I do think that a close loss 'helps' the Clones (clearly not as much as a W, but it wouldn't be all bad). I just really REALLY hope they don't get blown out of the water. Misery has something to prove here also.

    Clones win by 4, 75-71. ISU starts out strong, weak start to the 2nd half, but are able to maintain the lead and close it out. Should have beat them in Hilton.

    Did you just say you were going to "take it easy" for this game?

    I would like to see that.

    Re: ***Mizzou Predictions***

    Mizzou has a ton of scoring threats and Babb can't guard Denmon, Pressey, and English at the same time. If we shoot the lights out, we can win, but if Scotty is our only scoring threat again, we'll struggle to keep up.

    Final Score:
    Mizzou 76
    ISU 66
