    Nice Write Up On Fox News

    Gotta like this. You can't help but get excited about the future of our back-court

    Iowa State's young guards hoping to carve out playing time on stacked roster | Fox News


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..

    Re: Nice Write Up On Fox News

    Thanks for posting - great article.
    But I'm not sure about this quote:

    ".....Morris, a three-time All-State pick and Michigan's Mr. Basketball in 2013, could end up being the true young point guard that Hoiberg has never had."


    I think the emphasis is on "Young" and not "True", because with DGarrett, Allen and Korie, I would argue they pretty much were true point guards.


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    You're 66% correct. Allen was absolutely not a point guard at all.

    My favorite word in the article is "stacked". With all the worrying about who we lost (rightly so), it is easy to forget that we have quite the talent coming in and returning.

    Just want to point out that it's an AP story from Des Moines. Has nothing to do with Fox News.

    Pretty good article. Somebody did more than just read the Sports information director's notes.

    Re: Nice Write Up On Fox News

    Article pretty much says it like it is. Will be interesting to see how it all shakes out. Should make for competitive practices. But it could also take a while to find the right combinations and who can play Big12 calibur defense. Mix that in with our tough non-conf schedule and my guess is that "patience" will be floated around this fall on the message board alot. Like the future tho.

    I wish Luke Meredith was able to cover our team full time. He's pretty much our third-best/most-prolific beat writer.

    Yeah the "young" part disqualifies those players you mentioned as Fred only had them for one year as seniors. Also, Allen was not a point guard.

    Nice article. I enjoy Meredith's work as well, he seems to know his stuff and does his research before writing something up.
