    Lost to the Big 10 Champs on a last second shot

    Nothing to be ashamed of.

    We lost on a bad call and a 3 pointer by a guy that hadn't even taken a 3 all game long and bricked up his last 3 or 4 FT attempts as well.

    Also, we were playing the entire 2nd half without a starter AND our best defensive player. So who is the better team? I'll take ISU.

    Still, as I said, nothing to be ashamed of. Just disappointed that I don't think the better team won today. Would have been more interesting if ISU was at full strength all day.

    The losing team is not the better team.

    ISU might be the better team but tOSU is still playing. In the end, that's all that matters.

    Nothing to be ashamed of today but the season ended in fitting fashion. Another late game meltdown with a dash of questionable call thrown in.

    Not having Babb is what changed the game. His defense woulda shaved at least 4 to 6 of their point total.

    Re: Lost to the Big 10 Champs on a last second shot

    I'm not going to argue. It was a close game and one ISU certainly could have won but OSU has shown they are the better team all year and on the court today. That's all.

    We don't know that. ISU was not at full strength the entire 2nd half. One of our key starters and our best defensive players didn't play the entire 2nd half, and we lost on a poor call and a 3 point shot by a bricklayer. That doesn't point to OSU definitely being the better team.

    I'd like another shot at them when we are at full strength... that's all.

    I saw no meltdown on our end.

    I've watched one Iowa game all year. I don't see that number changing anytime soon.

    Sorry, I think Dance Moms or something else more entertaining might be on instead.

    Watching teams battle to see who is the best of the losers isn't my cup of tea.

    I haven't watched a game where Iowa is involved since our football game. Don't waste my time watching losers like that.
