    On second thought

    Went to the game tonight and I felt (along with some others in my area - nobody that I knew, just other ISU fans) that Fred took the air out of the ball so to speak after getting up by 17 or 18 midway through the 2nd half. Wondering if anyone else on here felt the same.

    At any rate, when I got home and re-watched the entire game I have to admit that I was wrong. It appeared that we did keep attacking the rim but just were not as successful for a variety of reasons in the last 10 mins of the game. It was clearly more about WV getting ridiculously hot from 3. Glad we were able to pull this out. Good start to the conference season and hopefully we can run our record to 4-1 heading into the Kansas State game.

    It seems to me like the conference (and its officials) doesn't want in-conference games, especially ones involving their new baby (WVU), to get out of hand to the tune of 25-30 point blowouts.

    No one takes the air out of the ball like a crappy ref crew.

    They did get ridiculously hot from three, and I agree, Fred did not take the air out of the ball. WVU did increase their pressure on defense, and we were not getting the open looks that we did before. The refs definitely turned the tide with every call (many very questionable) going their way. We actually still scored decently down the stretch, but WVU just couldn't miss.
