    B-Ball "players only" meeting, as per ESPN article this afternoon.

    Iowa State Cyclones hold players-only meeting as Bubu Palo to return during three-game slide - ESPN

    Not a whole ton of new information but some discussion of Bubu's return that was of interest.

    I think CF posters should have been invited also. Well, just the good fans. Bad fans have to shovel snow at RCA.

    Didn't they do that too after KU? Didn't work then, but it's good to get stuff off your chest. They haven't played together and are not on the same page. Offense looks stagnant, defense is a joke and lots of turnovers. Lots of it is such dumb mistakes but they aren't being corrected. OU, KU and Texas got whatever they wanted against us. The game plans seem silly to me to but I know nothing. Hopefully this helps

    "We're going to let coach (Hoiberg) handle Bubu. He's on our team now. We want him to be back on our team. You know, we missed him," senior point guard DeAndre Kane said. "We're happy for him. We know he's excited to be back on the team."

    Seems weird considering the two didn't even play together. Why not quote another player like Ejim or Niang?

    Kane is the only one that doesn't hate him.

    They should have a team meeting after every game.

    Kane was the one that asked. Kane also knows Bubu fairly well since Bubu was on the team this summer when Kane was as well.

    Not for very long though, didn't Kane need summer classes at Marshall to graduate? He missed the CCL?

    I think Matt Thomas just needs to launch a 27-footer first possession next game, give double-bookers to the crowd, and all will be fine again.

    Would guess he is the one that was sought out for a response as well. Anyone think there could be a chemistry issue as Ejim and Niang were going to be the "stars" on the team and now Kane is the one with all the press? Some reports from Marshall that Kane wasn't a players' favorite. Could that be the problem?

    Yeah, but I think he was in town for some of the CCL even though he didn't play. And it's not like Bubu has gone away. I am guessing he still lives with some of his teammates and I'd be shocked if he hadn't been around the team in a informal setting quite a bit.

    I am not seeing any chemistry issues.
