    Definitely killed us. UK was automatic and we couldn't hit it to save our life. It would have been a completely different game if we could have made our typical number and if they wouldn't have had one of their best 3 pointer games of the year.

    Re: Why ISU lost...

    Was going to make a thread about this, but I thought it was pretty obvious. Even if we shot our average on 3's, and Kentucky STILL shot lights out, it would have been a very close game at the end

    They would have been an almost impossible matchup for anyone the way they shot tonight.

    Totally. Iowa State played well enough to win this game. But the shots didn't fall. Even with Kentucky being so hot, ISU could have won this game if they would have also been hot. They played their *** off and they played well enough to win.

    Re: Why ISU lost...

    Absolute killer.

    I was impressed by ISU's scrappiness, decent adjustments after timeouts during runs, and after halftime, and being able to go a little off-****** (going hard to the bucket and drawing fouls, not relying on the 3 after it got shut down).

    Kentucky couldn't miss in the second half. And almost nobody could hit a 3 for Iowa State.

    Kentucky's size and d made it very tough to hit shots.

    We average 8, so that would have been 5 more than what we had in this game, which woulda made it 87-86 UK instead. They are an amazing team.
