    Babb's defense

    I have always been able to watch the whole court while the Cyclones are on offense and not just focus on the ball. But I find myself sometimes locked in on Chris playing defense and completely lose track of where the ball is at. His committment on the defensive end is just amazing. He has proven he can shut down guys no matter if they are 5-10 or 6-10. I was really nervous that Jackson would be to quick for him. Boy was I wrong. When Fred switched him at about the ten minute mark it just completely changed the entire game. It was fun to watch as the game progressed Chris's confidence in stopping Jackson just grew everytime down the court. Near the end Chris would stare him down at about half court and just nod his head as if to say "bring it little man".

    I know most people would say either Scottie or Royce is this teams MVP but I would probably vote for Babb in spite of his streaky shooting. Ok I'm done with my Chris Babb lovefest.

    No reason to stop. He's a great defender.

    Jackson hung out a bit after the game. Classy kid.

    Nice to hear. We went after him last spring, correct? Too bad he chose Baylor, we would be a legit FF team with him.

    Babb alone with his D has won us plenty of games that we otherwise would not have won this year. He truly does not get enough credit

    Re: Babb's defense

    Babb has been a stud this year for us. Even when he's off on the offensive side of his game, he still brings it on D. It's so fun to watch.

    I'm so glad we have him another year...

    Re: Babb's defense

    Babb's D has been mostly awesome this year. Has really done good work. He should be 1st Team Defensive this year. If he's not, then it's a travesty.

    Re: Babb's defense

    This team is a great TEAM. I love the different posts about almost each player's contributions. There is no one star that others can identify as a must stop. Everyone that checks in ends up being a factor to a win. This is a great TEAM and they are a blast to watch. May they give us several more games to watch them play this year!

    If we did, I don't think it was for very long. I remember hearing one thing about it, but he didn't want to come to ISU from the beginning I believe (from memory, and I can't find anything on Google yet). I think Iowa recruited him more than us.

    Honestly, if it wasn't for Withey at Kansas, Babb might be getting consideration for Big 12 defensive player of the year. I think him being 1st team is a lock at this point.

    Re: Babb's defense

    There are times when I watch him play defense and I just shake my head in sheer amazement. One of the best I've seen.

    Babb should get Defensive Player of the Year over Withey. He will not, be he should.

    Re: Babb's defense

    Who was the last defender we had at Iowa State that was as good as lock down defender as Babb?

    I don't think Baylor is going to beat us out for many more recruits in the future (assuming $$$ isn't a factor).
