    My keys to victory for ISU

    Dribbling!
    -our guards simply can't dribble into traps, dribble to the corners or pick up their dribbles without a plan in mind. We need to penetrate. Show them that we can handle their pressure early and they'll mentally think they can't take advantage of us.

    Better quality minutes out of Alex Thompson
    -We need to be able to let Brackins/Jiri get their rest while we can still be comfortable with Alex in.

    Make shots early
    -We need momentum and confidence. I'm sick of seeing us claw at leads all game long. This is especially important for Haluska.

    Move without the ball
    -causes fouls, confusion for defenses, open shots and keeps them guessing.


    We do these things or at least improve on these, we will win.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Don't turn it over, rebound, and make sure the help defense is there.

    #1 factor in my book: score more points then they do. we do this, and i think we have got a pretty good shot at winning tonight.

    No, the key is to hold them to fewer points than we get. Then we have a shot.

    You'd like to think so, but refs suck these days.

    Re: My keys to victory for ISU

    Rebounding will be huge. We got killed on the boards against Minnesota. UNI is outrebounding their opponents by 10 a game. Brackins needs to step up in that department. While Jiri has struggled offensively, he is doing well on the boards. We will need more of the same.

    Definately rebounding... but I think that will improve significantly with wes... but MY number one:

    Ball movement/distribution. Lets's make it easy for our teammates to score...

    Re: My keys to victory for ISU

    Before you get to dribble you need to rebound. With our front line, the production has been anemic.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Dribbling was attrocious. Can't get the ball to our talent.
    Did not get good minutes out of AT.
    Did not score well early
    Did NOT move the ball well.




    AND COMMON!!!!!!! ******* BANKED 3 Pointers? That's not talent? No one tries to bank 3 pointers. I about punched a UNI fan that thought their **** didn't stink after those 3s. Either way, we deserved in no way to win. LONG YEAR AHEAD, but I just want us to improve each game. Right now, we're not even doing that.
