    Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I feel a little more confident about this game as opposed to the Texas Tech game, but not by much.

    Thought we definitely brought the defensive tenacity vs. Texas Tech but there were stretches where we didn't shoot or rebound well.

    If we play extremely well, I see Hilton Magic prevailing once again.

    Iowa State 92
    Texas 82

    If we totally implode.
    Geez!

    Texas 92
    Iowa State 74

    Another ranked team, another big win.


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

    I don't know. It's a toss up for me. At Hilton but ISU is kinda flailing right now. I'll take ISU at Hilton but I won't be surprised with any outcome.

    Iowa State 82
    Texas 77

    7th win over a ranked team.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    We need this win. If we beat Texas that puts us within one game of them and ties us with Oklahoma. We would own the tiebreaker over Oklahoma for 3rd. Texas faces Kansas next weekend so if they lose to Kansas, that ties us with Texas and the amount of losses gives ISU the edge for 2nd place.

    We will lose the tiebreaker against Oklahoma or Texas if we are tied with either of those teams by themselves. However, if it is a 3 way tie then we would finish behind Oklahoma and ahead of Texas. This is assuming Oklahoma beats UT at home next week.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I think they'll be up for UT after losing to them down there. I predict one of their most complete games since Baylor (barring big foul trouble).

    ISU 88-79

    I predict about 8 negative threads about various basketball/Hilton "problems", whether we win or lose.

    We have won 4 of our last 5 and we are "flailing" right now. That 14-0 start seems to have changed perception.

    I am amazed at this...some guy calls in to the call in show the other night with about 50 things that were wrong. Hoiberg says well we are 18-5. Seriously, we are 19-5 in the toughest conference in America. Tuesday will be tough but fun. Can't wait...my son and I will be there. I will be cheering, he will likely be eating.

    Exactly. We've lost only to Kansas at Hilton since last season. I don't expect to lose at home again this year.

    Our last non-Kansas loss in Hilton was a conference game against Missouri (Jan 2012)

    All were close, 3 were against the bottom half, and the loss was the worst of the season. The OSU win is still good but they've lost 6 straight, and the TCU game had Mel's 48, but it shouldn't have been close.

    Instead of flailing, I'll say, not performing as well as they are able to.
