    Is this an NCAA Tourney Team?

    Is it? I know the average homer fan will say yes...but someone that knows basketball, well is it? They don't look good against decent teams. Very sloppy. I'm hoping this team can get 18 wins and make the NIT. Just not enough fire power this year. Missing Royce, Scotty and even Allen is going to hurt us this year. I know some homer fans may get upset, but you have to look at it as a regular basketball fan.

    Re: Is this an NCAA Tourney Team?

    I guess what I'm saying is can this team go 10-6 in conference play?

    I'm going to guarantee that this team doesn't go 10-6 in conference play. And the last time I checked, there is still 4 months of the season left. Who the hell knows if they're a tournament team right now. That doesn't matter.

    I understand it's early...but we need some good wins to get in also.. The commitie looks at that.

    Right, because they had SO MANY quality non-conference wins last year.

    This team will be just fine. To a tournament committee these 2 losses will not look bad at all. I will be very surprised if we are not dancing in March...

    Who was ISU's good win in the non-conference last year?

    I mean you have to look at it like this. I understand we all are Iowa State fans, but look at it from a regular basketball fan. Right now we are a 17 or 18 win team making the NIT.

    I hate to be a Debbie Upper but, its way too early to tell if this team will develop to ncaa caliber.

    I know one thing for sure. This team has a long long ways to go to challenge for a conference championship.

    If the tournament started tomorrow, then no. But it's only November. Give them a little time.
