    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.

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

    That looks like a negative statement.
