    No idea what the score will be but until a team not named Kansas comes in and beats us at Hilton which hasn't happened in nearly 2 years, I'll predict an ISU victory.

    This will be a very interesting game from the stamina standpoint. UT has 9 players averaging over 10 minutes per game in conference, and a 10th player who is averaging 9 minutes per game. ISU has 7 players averaging over 10 minutes a game. For UT, the lower minute guys aren't huge scoring contributors, but they appear to players capable of holding their own. Can Barnes find a way to capitalize on his depth?

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    -Naz/Matt needs to hit shots and Hogue/Ejim need to keep Ridley and Holmes off the glass.

    -Our students need to cheer much louder, as against Tech you could barely hear them on opponents FT's and it didn't seem to affect them at all. Texas is 67% from the line, so this will be very important.

    -With that being said, I will say ISU by 5. Hopefully the guys come ready to play and fans cheer loudly. Niang, Ejim and Hogue need to stay out of foul trouble. This is a huge game that we definitely NEED! With the conference race like it is, this game will help ISU to a possible 2 seed for the conference tourney.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I posted this in another thread, but this is semi relevant for B12 standings purposes in regards to Texas:

    Three things need to happen to jump UT. 2 are very likely IMO. Those would put us at dead even in the standings. The 3rd is tougher.


    1. We beat them at home.
    2. They lose @KU
    3. They drop one more game of @OU, @TTech, vs WVU, vs BU, vs TCU than we do vs WVU, vs OSU, @TCU, @BU, & @KSU.

    ISU 78 Texas 75

    It will be interesting to see how we handle the size of Texas inside. Good game to see if we have improved in the last few weeks.

    I predict that many people here will have some petty complaint about the student section

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    78-70 Texas. Ridley and Holmes are too tough to handle inside and Taylor follows the game plan set forth by Staten @West Virginia. If ISU can get Ridley in early foul trouble or hit an unusually high percentage of threes they can pull out a win. Texas just isn't a very good match up for ISU.

    I don't think so. Look at the last game at Texas. ISU didn't play well on offense at all and turned the ball over like crazy and they were down 4 with a minute left. I think they actually out rebounded Texas as well.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    Hope we can pull out the "W" but really hope we don't have one of those games where we have too many guys playing "hero ball" and turning it over too much. I like our odds of pulling it out giving its at Hilton but I'm predicting boarderline cardiac arrest through the majority of the game.

    What are the thoughts on if Percy sees much playing time in this game? May be huge if he can give us some good minutes and provide a bigger body on Ridley down low.

    Tend to lean towards this. Hopefully a hostile environment helps our cause and the shots fall for us.

    Texas killed us on the boards in the second half. Big reason why we lost.
