    If Ejim would have been able to throw down that alley-oop that he got fouled on, Hilton would have lost its top. What a sweet play by Fred. Was right after a time out, right?

    I like how the things that need to be improved, should be pretty easy to improve. Some of those turnovers were just plain careless. Same with some things on defense. But it's November, and they're correctable and I think this team seems to buy into what they need to do.

    I noticed McGeary lending a hand to Ejim when they both came in for the first time this season. I don't know how good Michigan actually is, but I was impressed with the way they play, and how the game stayed clean; I was actually to a point where I wouldn't have been mad if ISU didn't win, because it was obvious that they should have some success this year, and Michigan appears to be a nice team. VERY fun game to watch!
    McGary mentioned him and Melvin are friends. I think they were both Brewster guys.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    If we keep beating teams to death inside, the open threes will come.

    Re: Post game analysis-this team

    I think having Ejim back is going to help Niang tremendously. He seemed to be pressing or something so far this year. Maybe he just felt he had to do more or something, so Melvin being back should help.

    I think this team is gelling pretty quickly. Having Hogue, Melvin and Niang in there, plus what Kane can do on the boards makes ISU a much better rebounding team than some recent ones have been. I think all that is needed now is for the outside shooting to get more consistent, and pick up a little bit. If they can do that, this team can play the inside or outside game, or both depending on the opponent. It could be a really good year, imo.


    -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".

    Re: Post game analysis-this team

    Just want to preface that I'm not taking anything away from this team, they did the work to win this game, but man I love Hilton! In both the 1st and 2nd half when we played a bit sloppy and got down by 8, it only took 1 made basket to get the crowd back on their feet and get the runs going. It really felt like building wasn't going to let this one slip away.

    It is great to see that we didn't have our best game and we were still able to win. That was a legit Michigan team, and I like their style. I hope they make a big run in the big 10. Let's keep the wins coming.

    Yeah, I think Georges has been pressing a bit, probably with the added pressure from going from a complimentary role to a lead role. Having Melvin back and seeing what Kane can do undoubtedly relieves some of that.

    Still, through three games he's been pretty damn good and was money down the stretch tonight.

    This. Kind of. We gave them probably 5 free layups, yet I would say our D is head and shoulders above last year's (minus Babb).

    And when that happens, we will be unstoppable.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I agree. We stopped a lot of what they were trying to do, and I think the lack of free throws can be attributed to not getting so far out of position.

    Luckily for us, they shot pretty poorly down the stretch from outside. Hilton may have had something to do with that.

    We had a few bad lapses, but we should get that figured out in the rest of the OOC play. It was great to see us make stops (granted Michigan missed shots too) in that final minute. How many time in the past two seasons would we be up by multiple possessions under a minute, and then give up a almost uncontested lay-up under 7 seconds into shot clocks.

    Re: Post game analysis-this team

    A couple thoughts on the game:

    Thank goodness Ejim is a quick healer

    Love the games Naz and Hogue played. Naz shot the ball with a TON of confidence. He was absolutely sure he was making every shot he took, and I loved it. He also played really good D on Stauskas at the end of the game when Stauskas was in "win the game" mode.

    Hogue played 37 minutes (!) without a single turnover. He is the biggest surprise to me. I thought he'd be a 20-minute a game defensive/energy guy. But he's a lot more than that. He seems like a more athletic version of Ejim to me. Kane, Hogue and Ejim on the floor at the same time should get every rebound.

    Finally, Fred wanted this game. He really really wanted this game. You can tell from several things, primarily that Ejim played 28 minutes and the 7-man rotation. This wasn't "just another preseason" game.

    This team has the natural hustle and toughness that past teams may have lacked on a little.
