I think he'll struggle to get open unless Fred changes his offense around and sets multiple screens for him. I remember some people comparing him to Hoiberg himself as a high schooler earlier this year, which was just ridiculous considering how athletic Hoiberg was and Thomas didn't seem to have any of that in the video highlights I watched.

    Still, I think the NCAA Tournament is possible, and would love to eat my words come March, but the NIT (or worse) seems more likely to me at this point.
    I'm sure you know what you're talking about from watching highlight videos of him. You don't get ranked a top 60 recruit if your coach has to change his offense just so you can get a shot off.

    Onalaska's Matt Thomas, a freshman at Iowa State, had 19 points on 10 shots in intra-squad scrimmage Wednesday. Going to be really good.

    Yes, I think some are. Mind blowing, actually.

    Based on what? Yeah they lost Angel to transfer and McGrudder at seasons end but still return 3 starters and 2 others that saw significant time last year. I am betting they wont be as bad as many seem to think.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    19 on 10 shots? I was hoping for 30.

    We don't recruit quality players. 19 is the best we can hope for.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    so they lost their two best offensive players on a team that really struggled to score last year. They played good defense, but with the new rules - its all about putting the ball in the basket.

    KU, OSU and ISU will be the teams that excel with the new rules. Baylor is Baylor - not sure what Scott Drew will do next.

    Fred just brought in his best HS recruit since he's been here that fits perfect in our system. Unless he completely revamps our offense, 19 is going to be his ceiling in a Cyclone jersey.

    Why can't we find more 50 point scorers? That really can't be too much to ask for.

    Call a timeout to think about his options... then call another timeout less than a minute later when he realizes he forgot to take his socks out of the dryer.
