    I disagree. We don't have to be hitting our 3's. We have beaten plenty of good teams at home without hitting our 3's. Plus Iowa's interior defense is not very good.

    Iowa doesn't have the athleticism to beat Kansas. Iowa has yet to play an athletic team this year that can execute a well on offense. I'll give them more credit if they can stay with kansas until the closing minutes tomorrow. Until then I'm skeptical of how good they really are this year.

    Kansas should win but it wouldn't be a total surprise if Nova wins.

    I said that earlier. That's the only way they win this tourney. No way they beat KU unless they put on a TCU from last year effort.


    Ill put any dollar that if I get this ball again, Long said, Its going in.

    By hitting 3's I mean stretching their zone. They ate UTEP (and Xavier in 2nd half) alive inside on defense when they weren't threatened by outside shooting.

    I know it sounds kind of funny when taking about sports, but "athleticism" is often one of the most overrated aspects when talking about a good, average, or bad team.

    They are not mutually exclusive, (athletic and being good at basketball) However show me a truly great player, and 99.5% of the time they are athletic to go along with their basketball skills.

    It's funny because yesterday everyone was ragging on iowa saying they were mid major and stuff and today everyone is all geared up about them.

    Clearly but the reality of it is that they are somewhere in the middle of today and yesterday. they aren't as bad as people said they were yesterday and they aren't as good as people are making them out to be today.

    Re: IOWA vs IOWA STATE

    Kansas is a lot more beatable now than they will be 6 weeks from now. They had to replace their core, so it will take some time to come together. That is the big advantage I think Iowa will have over a lot of teams this year. They are returning all but one and got those extra practices in with the NIT run and the trip overseas. That is going to be a huge benefit to them, especially early in the season. ISU can beat them at Hilton, but it won't be easy. I think it will be a great game.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    This^^^. UTEP is not very good. New Mexico State has already beat them....twice. Regardless....watching KU now, and from what I have seen so far, if I was to rank the Big 12 right now.....the top five would be OSU-ISU-Baylor-KU-OU. Now I know it's early and these games in November and December don't mean a whole heck of a lot, but they don't look like conference winners let alone #2 in the country.
