    Re: 1996 Cyclone Basketball

    The 2000 team was more fun to watch, but I liked the 96 team a lot. Cato and Wiliby were great talent. JC Hollway didn't score many points, but the guy never, never turned the ball over. Kenny Pratt was a thug, but the guy played tough and could really rebound.

    Whew.. Can't wait to get back to winning like those teams did.

    Anyone remember how much Holloway weighed? I was 10 at the time. He looks like he probably weighed about as much as I did in 1996.

    Holloway was bigger than you think. I'm six one and 200 and I stood next to him once and thought we were about the same height and a little heavier than him

    I remember the spin out lob pass he ran with Cato against Missouri where Cato had his back to the basket around the free throw line and he just spun and went to the rack and the ball was therre waiting for him to throw it down.

    And Bill Raftery screamed "Send it in big fella!"

    What a great game, some good memories there. Love seeing Floyd on the sidelines.
    That team cetainly won't do down as one of the prettiest teams in history. A few of our guys took a few too many hits with the ugly stick.

    Speaking of Floyd, does anyone know how the selection of who plays who in the Pac 10/Big XII challenge works? Because how cool would it be if we played USC here next year. Floyd returning to Ames, standing O of Boos? I would assume standing O, but who knows what ppls mixed feelings are.

    Re: 1996 Cyclone Basketball

    Hard to imagine many would boo... he left us to coach in the NBA and he "appointed" Larry as his successor. Who could really blame a coach for moving to the pros and leaving your program in capable coaching hands.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    my thoughts exactly... but who knows how other ppl felt about him leaving so quickly... but i guess i was still only 9 then, so i guess i didnt have the full effect of the feelings of him leaving or whatever...

    I would say he would get cheers, I still like him and most people I know feel the same way. He did many good things for us.
