    I hope Fred puts more emphasis on D in the future.

    He's a young coach. He will hopefully learn from this season, that if you can't play D, you'll always be asking yourself "what just happened" at the end of these games.

    You let the opposition gain confidence when they score every time down the court. Teams that can't score, seem to have record nights against us.

    If you look at the games we've lost in the B12, we played extremely well offensively and hit a crazy amount of 3's in most of our losses. But at the end of the game, we can't get a stop and they opposition can.

    Our D isn't great but its OK. We've been extremely unlucky to lose 3 of the conference games we've lost. We do need a legit interior defender though, I will agree there. You can't always play with 6'7 and 6'6 PF/C combos.

    Letting a poor outside shooting team like KU knock down 54% overall and 52% from three in your own building won't win you many of those games, regardless of what the refs are calling.

    That was all one player...jeez...


    But you're right - we do lack D, but I think a lot had to do (especially in OT) with the fact that after that sh1tty call on Niang the guys didn't even try to play tough for fear of getting called for looking at KU sideways.

    We have a unique team that doesn't match up well against them defensively (should have known that from the first game), however we are a mismatch for them on the offensive end as well. They made some lucky shots and got all the calls at the end, that's why they won. The team deserved this one and they were screwed!

    Uh, we set a school record for three-pointers, including one that was intended as a (poorly thrown) alley-oop but went in. It's not like we can count on that every night out.

    Re: I hope Fred puts more emphasis on D in the future.

    There's a reason for that. Fred chose to collapse our defense to prevent their bigs from scoring and getting or gigs in fould troubled, and gambled KU wouldn't hit the outside shots. He did the same thing at KU.

    Nope, I hope he keeps doing what he is doing.
    Did you hear the entire halftime crew talk about how they would love to play for the Mayor. He is doing great things at ISU. Close losses shouldn't cloud that!
    You don't normally get the bad bounces in every close game like they have this year.

    Re: I hope Fred puts more emphasis on D in the future.

    His teams will never be filled with defensive studs. Teams at ISU will have the mentality that we are going to outscore you and if you bring it down to the wire with us, we will outscore you at that point too.

    Our style is our style. It works better when we aren't playing 5 on 8.

    I hope agclone puts more emphasis on not making dumb threads after games in the future.
