    Struggling in the frontcourt...

    Can we make up for it with athleticism? As of late, I am not seeing the proverbial "crashing of the boards." Anybody else witnessing the same?

    They had 16 offensive rebounds last night. If that's not crashing the boards, then I don't know what is.

    Are you confusing ASU games with ISU games?

    Correct! But we have slipped to 18th all-up in rebounding. I recall us being in the top 10 at a point in time? What is happening?

    Good point. Those 2 rebounds are the single reason we lost that game.

    Edit: As for what's happening, we don't have any more Alabama A&Ms. The crap teams are gone now. Conference play is, like, tougher. The opponents are, like, better and stuff.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Better opponents will do that.

    Agreed.... as we were out-rebounded again last night... do we need better BIGs? I realize Freddie can handle our back court... and then some... other than Niang, can he recruit and coach a front court?

    2 rebounds. Get a grip on yourself, and maybe a box of Kleenex for the tears.

    Other than Niang??? I understand the frustration, but let's not be so dismissive of Niang. The dude is gonna pay some serious dividends down the road. Hoiberg is taking some heat recently for his big man recruiting, but you can't exactly gloss over Georges. The guy is well above the curve offensively right now, and his defense will come with maturity and time in the weight room. Sure, Fred has some work to do on the recruiting trail, but I'm not worried.

    When we're on our game, we force teams to adjust to our line up, and it usually doesn't work them. When we're off, the same happens to us.

    I'm more worried about Doug Szathke than our frontcourt.

    We actually weren't outrebounded, by any measure that matters.

    The best measurement of rebounding is offensive rebounding %. We got 33% of our misses. They got 22% of their misses.

    the final rebounding numbers were skewed by the fact that we missed 20 more shots than they did.
