    2 banked 3's

    IIRC the 3 before half tonight was banked. The McLemore 3 to send the KU game to OT was banked as well. Just goes to show that we are so close to being 6-1 or 7-0 if we take care of business in Lubbock

    Still had a nice lead in the second half after the fact, but yeah the point is valid. We're very close to being right at the top, things just haven't gone our way at times.
    We'll get it. I'm excited for Saturday

    Banked threes don't lose a 10 point lead after a second half run.

    Re: 2 banked 3's

    As far as conference play goes, if you ain't first, all you care about is a Big 12 tournament title and a NCAA tournament appearance. These losses suck but we've had some close games go our way as well (especially when you include last year) and we had a minimal chance at a regular season title this year.

    Re: 2 banked 3's

    I know your pain, those 2 banked 3's were the difference in those two losses. Without the banked 3's we are a lot closer to the ncaa tourney.

    I have always thought that we at Iowa State can and will win more big 12 b-ball tournaments if it is held in KCity, I just dont think Fred will ever be able to win a regular season basketball title ala Larry Eustasy.

    We are gonna have to be at our best to beat Baylor because they have a very good team with a one year center thats going to the NBA after this season.

    A one year center? Sounds like someone Georges is familiar with.

    We should just petition for the NCAA to remove backboards. They're a freaking crutch if I've ever seen one

    Re: 2 banked 3's

    Bank shots should only count as two points max, maybe one point.

    I would disagree with this part.

    Re: 2 banked 3's

    I think it sucks as well, but to be fair, in addition to Scotty's game winning shot last year, ISU has banked in their fair share of threes this year.

    And they play a zone so it's not like he's gonna have to guard Niang on the perimeter.
