    Post game analysis-this team

    This team has unbelievable chemistry. We looked good without Ejim but its evident how great Ejim is going to be this year. He was unstoppable. Monster on defense, rebounding and scoring. Naz Long has stepped up. Kane is a man child same with Hogue. Thomas/Morris are freshman but should be solid for us.

    Please dont flame me for saying it, but if we beat BYU on the road Tuesday, are we a top 25 team next week? Actually, can we beat a top 25 team this week? Lots of ranked teams went down this week.

    Very, very pleased with tonights performance. The crowd was awesome, just incredibly loud the whole time. The students were into it, the older crowd was up the majority of the game too. Love this team. Beating a very solid Michigan team this early in the season was very unexpected. To be honest, I thought we'd lose by about 10 so this was a pleasant surprise. Lets get this momentum going into BYU! Go STATE!

    I wasn't paying attention to the box score, did we only go 7 deep? I don't think i saw Edozie, Gibson, Kj, or SDW play...

    Lotta upside to this team. Morris & Thomas will contribute a lot more than they did tonight. Hogue is an excellent defender (but doesn't need to shoot from Trey) and Kane had some TO and at times had trouble running the O from a 1/2 court set.

    Surprising. I would've thought that with the way we were shooting SDW or KJ would've gotten in.

    I heard Dicky V. use the word defense when talking about ISU! Thought the defense was a lot better for the most part. A couple guys got lost on defense, but good intensity and pretty good at playing within the new touchy rules. Decent team defense for all the new guys.

    Hogue has impressed me a lot through three games. I expected him to be a contributor, but he's very solid defensively and is filling it up more than I expected through the early games.

    He reminds me of a freshman or sophomore Ejim.

    Hogue played a good game but he needs to know that his role on this team is not 3 pt shooter.
    The guy has some serious grit though. You could tell that the Mich guys were sick of getting knocked around.

    Re: Post game analysis-this team

    Naz is the biggest suprise, his shot looks really good. I am guessing houge goes to the bench to provide depth for melin and niang.

    What long has done with his game in the off season is amazing!!!!

    Re: Post game analysis-this team

    Great thing about this team is how much room for improvement they still have. Kane got caught trying to do to much a couple times. Hogue made some bad shot selections. Niang got frustrated early and was trying to force things instead of kicking it out to open shooters. Thomas needs to get better at getting open without the ball. And even with all those things, they still play really well together and are playing good team defense. This team could be really good.

    Good win for ISU. Kane looked good, Ejim was a beast, and Niang showed up at the end when they needed him. Long can really shoot it. Morris and Thomas just need more time, they will be up and down as FR usually are. All in all, very good showing for ISU.

    Melvin being the object of an ESPN love-fest for 24 hours is going to be great.

    We can be really good on D but we blew a bunch of covers in this game.

    Yeah, I'm thrilled we won the game, but I'm even more excited in knowing we did it without playing our best basketball at all.

    Niang wasn't particularly good until the end when we really needed him. Morris and Thomas didn't really do anything at all. Kane was a beast, but did have some careless turnovers. We actually, as a team, had several really careless turnovers. We also took some bad 3's tonight too.

    So, all in all, we just beat the #7 ranked team in the country without even playing our best. That tells you that we have a pretty big ceiling.
