    Good Game Clones

    I thought Jiri and Garrett were the stars of the game. It is hard to see why Peterson plays more minutes than Garrett. I thought Brackins played with a lot of energy but he needs to slow down, not shoot so early in the clock. He is going to be very good. Wesley Johnson has a very smooth game. You guys certainly have a go to player when he is healthy.

    As for the Hawks, I like our young guys - Kelly, Cole and Peterson. I thought Peterson struggled today, particularly when Garrett put pressure on him. Our bigs, particularly Looby and Gorney are frustrating. One would think that seniors would have more poise and desire. This is going to be a long year, particularly after a long fall with the football team.

    I think both basketball programs are headed in the right direction with good young players and good coaches.

    Re: Good Game Clones

    I would have liked to have seen what Iowa could have done with Freeman, as ISU basically played defense giving up penetration, with the overplay man to man, but they knew that Iowa could not hurt them...

    Then again, if Brackins had made half of his point blank misses, that had to be close to seven or eight, it might not have mattered even then.

    I was hoping Freeman would play just for entertainment value. Without him the Hawks are about as good as a top 5-10 JUCO team.

    Couldn't agree more! I really don't understand why Iowa didn't pressure the ball out on the perimeter. Our offense looked soooooo much more in synch today and I really think it shows that McDermott's offense is very good when run correctly, pressuring bad ball handlers just disrupts the timing of everything. Great win and I thank lickliter for not watching tape of our first 7 games and refusing to pressure our gaurds.

    Can't wait until we have gaurds good enough to beat pressure so our offense looks that in synch all the time.

    Iowa missed Freeman a lot today and I was surprisingly impressed with their freshmen. Cole's strong inside, Kelly is a skilled offensive player, and peterson looks decent. No superstars, but solid players to build around.

    Agreed, Good game!

    Sore foot. He was limping noticeably against UNI, and I wondered if they brought him back too soon.

    A sore foot, apparently.

    He broke his foot earlier this year. First game was against UNI the other night.

    Like others have said, he probably came back too soon and played too much the other night.

    Kelly is going to be a very good scorer for you over 4 years.

    Re: Good Game Clones

    Do they always delete the game threads after the game is finished over at HN.com?

    Lickliter seems a class act...I don't like the Hawkeyes, but he is not cut from the same mold. Refreshing.

    Re: Good Game Clones

    Kelly is going to be a great player, but the new Iowa PG Peterson is aweful. Ive seen him play several times now and he does NOTHIGN to get his teammates involved and is a TO factory.

    Re: Good Game Clones

    so what was the deal with the students chanting guilty every time (jake kelly?) had the ball?


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams
