    Here's Seth Greenberg's video preview for ESPN...
    Big-Game Breakdown: Iowa vs. Iowa St. - ESPN Video - ESPN

    This game will be decided by Niang's, Ejim's and especially Kane's performance due to the mismatches they present for Iowa. I really think CFH will try to get D. Kane matched up with Gessel/Clemmons in the post. If that consistently happens I'd expect DeAndre will lead the game in scoring.

    11 hours to Tip Off!

    Really not sure how they defend Kane without going zone, and I don't think they can play zone the whole game.

    I agree. I expect Iowa to start out in zone to see if Matt/DeAndre are hitting their shots to start. ISU has seem to come out of the gate a litte jacked up in these big games perhaps rushing, thus having cold to start. But once a couple go in Fran will be forced to go man-to-man for a majority of the game. To that point, I think that Fred will run some sets designed for Thomas to get a few clear 3 looks to help him into to a grove early on.

    I'm jacked up for this game. If we continue to keep playing are basketball I have no doubt about us winning 2nite. Hittin 3's and dishin down to Georges and Melvin. Side note here, Iowa might have the most un-athletic looking basketball team I have ever seen in White, Utoff, and McCabe. They seriously look like they don't even belong on the court and then all of a sudden one of them will dunk it and my brain cramps up...
    Moral of this story big game for our Cyclones. IA State 93 Iowa 89.

    I think it'll be the opposite. Iowa will start out man-to-man because the starting lineups matchup okay for them, when ISU has 3 bigs in.

    When ISU goes small, then I expect Iowa to go to a zone to protect their bigs from getting abused on the drive or losing a shooter.

    But I don't think anyone should ever zone a Hoiball team. It's just not going to work.

    I predict a final score of 78-70, Iowa State of course.

    I think everyone should zone us, just because it's not going to work.


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

    Hawkeye Nation seems to be quietly confident about their team. It contrasts nicely with our bubbling confidence.

    I know we have it in us, now let's execute. FINISH THEM!

    Reid Gettys loves Hoiberg and the Cyclones. He is always very complimentary of the ISU program and the guy does a lot of Big XII Network games so he is very familiar with the ISU team. I actually like it when he is on the call for ISU games.

    *sigh* *grumble*

    I'm going to miss watching at LEAST the first half, if not the whole game. Same with husband. Gotta love it when your work schedule orbits around HS basketball. Have another big ISU fan in the family that probably has to ref some HS games tonight, too.

    Oh well...that's what the DVR's for.

    Okay, I just thought of a problem.

    I have a optional final for a lab I am in tomorrow. I plan on taking it, but I need to study. So should I watch the game at home, give my ticket to someone, or just say screw it, and go to the game?
