    Cyclone Challenge

    Ill be out of town this weekend and won't be covering the two tournament games. Hope to read what all of you have to say. I'm attending the Vikings Packers game. Donated my tickets to a benefit auction for a 16 year old brain cancer patient. The people who won the tickets are very excited and are new Cyclone fans!

    Should be a good game for even those like myself who only follow NFL casually. Rodgers vs Peterson with a playoff spot on the line should make for some good Sunday action. Even after 30 years in the Twin Cities I have never warmed to the Vikings but Peterson has been freakin' amazing coming off of the surgery he had.

    Baier is likely out this weekend with the flu. Bad timing since this would likely be a good time for her to get some more game experience.

    Re: Cyclone Challenge

    An article in the Ames Trib comments on the competition as well as the nonconference schedule.
    Women’s Basketball: Flashiness lacks, but nonconference schedule provides Cyclones what they want

    Interestingly, the 2 Big Ten teams ISU has played may be stiffer competition than credit given. Illinois beat #6 Georgia, and Iowa beat (demolished) #20 Texas last night. Both Georgia and Texas were probably over-rated, but nonetheless, those are quality wins that look good for ISU as well. Obviously, this weekend is just a primer, but an important time to get some things worked out before ISU goes up against Texas. Texas might come with a bit more of a chip on its shoulder.

    I don't think a team can work anything out against competition like this. Our great WBB fan support gets taken for granted every year with this non-conf scheduling. It's a joke.

    Re: Cyclone Challenge

    When you are young...and our guard court is that...these games can be very helpful. When we have veteran squads we schedule tougher. We just can't get the tough teams to do home and homes with us.

    Okay, one half of this is enough. It is like an exhibition game; actually not even up to the level of the William Penn exhibition game.

    Re: Cyclone Challenge

    Great to see Kidd get hot! I hope she can keep shooting better, even if not as hot as she was today.

    Re: Cyclone Challenge

    Really did seem like she let the shots come to her at first and then just rolled. Really encouraging to see.

    Sorry I dont buy that. Pat Summit was never asked . Shame that ISU fans never got to see her in Hilton. But I think with our young guards it wasnt the season for a tough noncon. Iowa seems to have no problem scheduling good non cons.....

    I was hard on her for a couple of games where she shot fairly badly, nice to see Kidd come out of it. Hopefully, this is something she can fall back on and use for the rest of the season.

    Re: Cyclone Challenge

    The game write-up from the Trib: Women

    Really liked this part.....not sure how many coaches would think of this.......

    "Still, Fennelly didn’t believe this game was just about the competition. He believed it was also about perspective, instructing his players to head to the service academy’s locker room after the game and thank the Falcons for their commitment to the nation.

    'Certainly not a team that has the firepower to play with an Iowa State, but every single one of those kids has done so much and will do more,' said Fennelly, who also got 13 points from Brynn Williamson and 12 from Poppens. 'It’s an honor to have them here.' "


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".
