    Re: ISU-OU MBB Postgame

    Besides giving up O-rebounds, the biggest determinant for this team is getting production from the non-big four, which correlates highly with 3p shooting. We cannot keep giving up Orebounds (OU is a small team too) and getting nothing from Thomas (and in this game Morris and Naz). Also, our 3P defense in B12 has been bad.

    Oh, and to say the refs had NO impact is being idiotic.

    Up by 1 with 2.5 minutes to play. First game we did not close out.

    Re: ISU-OU MBB Postgame

    Great performance from OU beats an okay performance from us. They're a very good team and we have a target on our back now.

    Really hope that we can get DeAndre back soon. That didn't look good though. MM can fill in capably, but Kane has really carried us lately.

    Re: ISU-OU MBB Postgame

    We beat OU by 20 points anywhere that isn't Norman. Poor rebounding, not ready to play, very ppor defensively, poor shot seclection. Played as poorly as possible, OU played as well as possible and still almost beat them. Whatever, that happens in basketball.

    The issue is Kane. Without him we have 5 guys that play much anymore since I think it is pretty obvious Fred is losing some confidence in Thomas. We have no chance against KU if he isn't ready to go.

    Hard for me to relax when our best player is "on the bench" with an injury.
    Whether its a simple roll, bad sprain, whatever, I'm not going to relax until he's back on the court.

    Thomas is out of his league this year. Big potential but not this year.

    PS - refs had zero to do with the loss. ;)
    Good analysis, thought we had poor shot selection, and we're expecting calls from the refs, that you're not going to get on the road in B12. That and I think Kruger out coached CFH today. Don't like saying that, but how else do you explain it.

    Re: ISU-OU MBB Postgame

    Thomas has potential, he needs to get more confident in his shot, he had a few close ones in there, but I expect he will improve greatly next year.

    Re: ISU-OU MBB Postgame

    We didn't play "horrible". We had some positives, but there are a few underlying issues that need to be resolved. Several key things in this loss today:

    1. We suck at the free throw line. We've been subpar all season and still won. It was only a matter of time until it bit us.
    2. We didn't shoot well from 3. If we don't shoot well from the arc and the other team does... It makes it difficult to win.
    3. Refs were about as inconsistent throughout the game as I think I've seen this season.
    4. We shot GREAT from inside and drove to the basket well. The bonus for doing so is opportunities from the charity stripe as previously mentioned.

    Rest assured, we will beat OU when they come to Ames and in much better fashion than they beat us today.

    Hard to tell with ankles, might swell up like a ballon, might be ok. Find out tomorrow.

    Re: ISU-OU MBB Postgame

    It wasnt a bad loss, just the same as some of our earlier wins weren't great wins, we played hard for most of the game and showed a lot of determination keeping it as close it was. As a Cyclone fan you cant ask for much more. If this loss means we get a few more wrinkles ironed out (defensive rotations, rebounding, taking care of the ball against full court pressure) then this could be just what the doctor ordered.

    OU is 52-55 from the charity stripe in the last two home games against ISU. WTF

    Re: ISU-OU MBB Postgame

    That was OU at the top of their game and ISU mediocre at best, only lost by 5. I'm calling a double digit win when we get them back at Hilton.

    I kind of think, in many areas, they did play horribly.
