    Re: Great threads at The Boneyard...UCONN message boards

    Eternally grateful the break happened right now for the clones. I think having some rest time will do the cyclones more good than probably any other team left in the dance. Got hit hard with the niang news, turned around on little time with a short bench and survived. More rest time and more game planning time will benefit the clones in a huge way. I know any team could say this, but it would be hard to imagine a situation which was worse for any of the other 15 teams.

    guys looked gassed in the second half before their spurt in the last few minutes.

    despite my avatar, i feel cautiously optimistic for the second game in a row.

    napier, is a ******* stud. just hope we can shut everyone else down and stay out of foul trouble again.

    What jumps out to me is the ball movement or lack of that Nova tried to run on the play. I'm not so sure that Aaron Agnew or Victor Alexander would not have been able to get to that shot. Might want to mix in a few skip passes or drive and kicks.

    That was a very good write-up. I have one quibble, and that is the sentence about how Iowa State struggled against Baylor this year. ISU was 2-1 against Baylor, including a win in the championship game of the Big XII tournament. The game in Hilton was a blowout victory for the Cyclones, and the game at Waco was tied with about two minutes to play, when ISU suddenly stopped playing (that's what it felt like, at least).

    Kansas with Embiid was a huge problem for us, though. Then again, even the teams that beat Kansas were also blown out when they played in Lawrence (the lone exception was Okie State, which beat an Embiid-laden Kansas in Stillwater and only lost by two at Phog Allen Fieldhouse).

    If you want my piece of scouting on ISU, it's this: ISU pretty much lets opposing teams shoot open mid-range jumpers, since we'd rather they shoot those shots than get anything easy in the paint. That's why it's common to see ISU outscore teams in the paint that are much bigger than them (see first game against Baylor). Against teams with great three-point shooters like Phil Forte of Okie State or Brady Heslip of Baylor, we put our best defender on that team's best shooter and make sure he never gets open, while daring the other four guys on the floor to hit a jumper.

    That strategy didn't work very well when we played at Oklahoma because the Sooners have too many shooters. Same thing happened in the game at West Virginia. When we played Kansas in Ames, Nadir Tharpe made us pay when we double teamed Embiid by shooting lights out from three. Andrew Wiggins did the same thing against us when we double teamed Embiid in our game in Lawrence.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of defense Fred employs against you guys Friday. Our traditional defense is just pack the paint to prevent guards like Napier and Boatright from driving through the lane, which would mean you're going to get a lot of open looks from the perimeter.

    We had a pretty short bench even with Niang but now that he's not an option, we're really short-handed. Daniel Edozie is a forward with some size (6'8", 245 lbs) who comes into the game mostly to get rebounds, the occasional block, and soak up fouls. He is not an offensive threat, and I'm worried about how we're going to score on you guys when he's in the game. Percy Gibson, 6'9" 255 lbs, is another option for us but he has played very few minutes lately, for reasons those of us on this message board don't understand. He shot about 65% from the floor when he was a freshman two years ago but wasn't quite as good his sophomore year, and now just plays during garbage time. He definitely has some post moves and has shown a nice touch around the basket in prior seasons, although we haven't seen much of it this year.

    Matt Thomas, a shooting guard, is someone else you're likely to see off the bench. He's a guard who shoots a decent percentage from three, but not quite as good as our other sharpshooter, Naz Long. Thomas is only a freshman, and we're all cheering for him, but right now he's still a little green, especially on defense. He never played man-to-man defense at his high school, so he had to learn that when he came to Iowa State. I worry about stopping the Huskies on defense when he's in the game, since he constantly gets beaten off the dribble.

    Are you kidding me? For a fan base that's won a national championship or two, some of these guys know jack **** about the sport. Yes, I know UConn fans are reading this too.

    Napier is really good, and Boatright is pretty good too.
    You do realize who "KO" is, right? KO is... Kevin Ollie. He's the one you are saying doesn't know jack **** about the sport.

    Easy bud, realize those kind of comments are part of the game when you go to another team's message board.

    Oh, I know. His phrasing makes me sound more worked up than I am. No hard feelings.

    Another NCAA tournament where ISU has to face a team with their home crowd. This time it isn't a one seed or a two seed with a home crowd. We have the fortune of a seven seed with a home crowd. We earn a three seed and both of our sites are more then 15 hours from home. Thanks again NCAA.
