    Re: Kane: "Not one-on-one"

    Did Shabazz's quote come across as rambling in person as it did in print?

    Re: Kane: "Not one-on-one"

    I think it was after we beat K-State in the tournament, the team yelled "Family" instead of "Team" or "Cyclones" and that's when it hit me.

    Big Daddy came in here, and got the whole team to buy into being a family. A family is more than a team. A family looks after each other and has each others backs.

    And, just like a family member, he isn't making this about himself, he's making it about his family - The Cyclone family.

    If he wanted to, he could easily make this game all about him.


    It's Levi-O-sa, not LeviosAR

    Sounds like they are going to try to harass Kane and get in his head. Hope Kane and the rest of the Cyclones can battle through and win the game!

    Wow. You know he really could try and say that they could do something because he knows that he will do what they can because they've done it before.

    Re: Kane: "Not one-on-one"

    I haven't watched UConn basketball this season. Napier mentions controlling tempo. What kind of tempo does UConn want?

    This team has a lot of mental toughness that has only improved since the tournaments started. I feel damn good about that.

    I believe they would just like to slow our tempo. I think teams realize if we win the "tempo" game, we have the athletes and players to do that.

    But also remember, KSU and NCCU and to an extent UNC all tried to "control the tempo"

    UConn seems to have held their opponent to 70 or fewer points 28 times this season. ISU has scored 70 or under 1 time. Should be fun.

    Slow us down and get us to score in the range of 50-60's instead of 70-80's we are averaging.

    Re: Kane: "Not one-on-one"

    “Kane is a great player but the problem is that everybody – you know, I think he’s definitely their motor. He gets them going. That’s what great players do. I’m pretty sure that if we try our best and try to contain him, which is sometimes difficult, because he’s seen everything. He’s seen and experienced everything throughout this year. We just got to try out best to contain him and they shoot a lot of threes and they make a lot of threes. We got to do a good job of contesting shots. We got to do a good job of rebounding the ball. And we just got to do a good job overall as a team of controlling the tempo we want.”

    ...while somewhat true lately, it looks like someone hasn't watched much ISU basketball this year...

    If you didn't know this team you would never think that Kane was a transfer and was only with ISU one season. The team and the fans have fully embraced him and vice versa.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    These guys were a family before Kane got here. The way they tweet back and forth with former players shows that.

    Re: Kane: "Not one-on-one"

    In games that we've lost this year , opponents have scored an average of 84.2 points. Not sure slowing us down is going to work. You pretty much have to put up big numbers to beat us.
