    Yes, we won!

    Iowa came into Hilton playing with the size, poise and precision of a pro. In the first half Iowa was far better team than their number 23 ranking would imply. Yet, in spite of an intolerable transition defense, failed free-through attempts and a painful 3 point performance in the first half, the Cyclone’s warrior like mentality may have lost a few of the battles but won the all-important war!!!

    It is one thing to come back from a 10 point deficit against a marginal team, but coming back and beating Iowa is a true tribute to the perseverance, positive passion, fully focused intensity and a burning will to win endemic in the very fiber of their being. A winner looks at adversity the way a lion looks at lunch. As a result, a great team can learn more from failure than success and I am excited to see this team turn the adversity experienced in to an advantage. The future looks bright and I count it a privilege and a pleasure to be able to sit in the stands and witness the game of basketball being played at such a high level. Grow to GREATNESS and go Cyclones!

    I think Chris Williams, or one of his moderators, needs to teach a course on "Thread Efficiency"

    Wow OP, I'm inspired. There's a klamath632-sized hole in the wall where I just ran through it.

    **** this post...too positive. Time to continue the self-flagellation over the court storming. I see another thread has been started on that today that all ready has 50 posts.

    Re: Yes, we won!

    The defense really picked up the second half. Getting back on transition was not good in the first half.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    That looks like a negative statement.
