    Missed Opportunity

    I'm fully confident the winner of today's game (unfortunately was Ohio State) will waltz into the final four. Could have been the Cyclones... So close, yet so far. ISU is a great team talent wise, but somehow were cursed throughout the season. I truly thought today was the day!

    Proud of our guys, such a great group of seniors. Especially feel bad for Babb who had to sit today - he could have locked down Craft.

    Not sure what next year will bring, but I doubt they will hit as many threes or have this much success in the win column. Sad, yet proud day.

    I expect OSU to make the Final 4. If they win it all, we will have gotten beat by the eventual national champion in 4 of our last 5 NCAA appearances.

    Re: Missed Opportunity

    How does osu shoot 50% overall and from three? Had to be one of their better games. That one hurts bad.

    Re: Missed Opportunity

    I'm torn between wanting OSU to squash everyone from here on out so we look like the best damn team they played or having Arizona just drill three after three down their throats and get every call and bit of good luck. And beat them by 30 with Craft getting 4 technicals.

    I'm thinking the home crowd for OSU was probably worth a few points, so if Arizona plays them nearly as tough as we did, the Cats will be moving on.

    I support that, but how will Craft get 4 Ts?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Partially because they got hot, and partially because they had good perimeter ball movement against our zone. Sometimes it just happens that way. Losing Babb hurt a LOT more than people anticipate, our defensive scheme becomes pretty one dimensional with him on the bench. With him, we very well could be heading to LA for the sweet 16. Gut punch.

    whining, whining, crying, saying "he took my ball, that's MY ball!" and throwing a temper tantrum worse than any three year old's.

    The refs won't count technicals 2 and 3 even though they are. Kinda like how Whitey gets 7 fouls a game.

    Dont forget that LA will basically be a home game for the Cats as well.

    Re: Missed Opportunity

    Part of me wants to see OSU win it all - of course, we'd have the dubious distinction of losing to the eventual national champs in our last 3 NCAA's. I'm from Ohio and enjoyed them as a child. But, I do hate to root on a team that beat us.

    So, I'm pulling for LaSalle.
