    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I get the feeling that the team has changed in it's dynamic a little from the beginning of the season. I think the KU game revealed our flaws to the rest of the conference. Mainly we don't have a lot of length and we aren't a prolific 3 point shooting team. Early in the year and against non-conference teams we enjoyed the previous years success at 3 point shooting to work to our advantage, teams were concentrating on defending the 3 point stripe. But time has shown that we aren't that great from the great beyond and now we have had to fight for our inside shooting that earlier was open to us. In non-conference we were rebounding the hell out of the ball because teams were packing us on the perimeter leaving the paint open. I think it is amazing we still have enough skill to win in the paint with a lot of these teams that are built more like normal college basketball teams with the token center.

    I think Texa$$ is really a solid team this year, but I have seen a lot of solid teams enter into Hilton and look average. I think ISU wins by probably 5 or 6. I think both teams will be over 75 points.

    ISU 84 - Texa$$ 79

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I'm not going to make a prediction because I don't want to jinx anything. I really want us to win though.


    Just Win.

    Hard fought, pace the room victory for the Clones. Naz's stroke stays as does Thomas'. This game begins streak of return to non-conference form.

    Great point. I think some of that can be seen in the complacency with the upper deck sections cheering at Hilton right now, too. Most people (at least in my section) seem to be content to sit on their hands and don't worry about cheering. Maybe they feel the team is so good they don't need to provide that extra lift and support that Hilton always used to?

    I feel like some of the past few games have had complacent crowds. Hope the crowd gets back up for it for Tuesday's big game! We're going to need it.

    Go State! I am ecstatic with 19 - 5 right now!

    yeah, I'm a little worried about the crowd Tuesday. A lot of fans seem less excited about our team right now. Maybe they'll be just as loud, but they sure are ******** a lot for an over achieving 19-5 team. These kids are having a phenomenal year. I'm embarrassed for the guys that call in to the radio shows and ***** about this team. Like the guy who thought our win at okie state was a poor showing against a bad team. Their lack of perspective makes me cringe for them.

    It is rather embarrassing indeed. As others have already said, I think a lot of our fans got big heads when we went 14-0 in non conference and thought we were automatically elite and expect to win the conference. If people realize that just 3 years ago, we were .500 for the season, maybe the people complaining about this team will come down to earth a little.

    Well, TCU and TTU are not going to get people going crazy. If not for Ejim going off that game was pretty boring.

    Huge home game for us and at Hilton...

    Iowa State 83
    Texas 77

    We played Texas very close last time, we just got out-hustled toward the end and ran out of gas. I think we have this one in a close game!

    Very fair analysis. We lost by 5 the first time and if I remember correctly we really didn't play that well. I see this team playing to make a statement against Texas as they might be the last ranked team we'll get at home for the rest of the season. I see the Cyclones winning a close game by 4-8 points or ISU losing a heart breaker..but hopefully it is the first choice!

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I am guessing Ridley and Holmes will go off, Niang and Ejim will get into foul trouble, but the team will find a way to win, either b/c Long and Morris will hit a higher % of 3's, or Houge and Kane will carry the team.

    I would say ISU in a very tight game, which for us fans will not be fun to watch, but being at Hilton, we should get the win.

    Led most of the way to the 16:00 of the 2nd half, then got down by ten or so and clawed our way back to 4 before losing by 10 on mostly free throws in the final minute.
