    Could we beat Drake now?

    I went to the Drake game on Saturday night...

    I think that the Cyclones could beat them if we played them again...

    With Josh Young, no... Without him, it would be a good game, could go either way...

    At Drake, they have our number. At home, we might have a chance.

    I agree with this. Speaking of Josh Young, does anybody know when he is estimated to be back?

    Re: Could we beat Drake now?

    I'm not so sure. But we won't play 'em again (unless by some highly unlikely case we meet in the postseason), so it's useless.

    I don't understand what the obsession is with that game. We were very inexperienced then (not that we have a ton now, but much better), dealing with injuries and Drake just couldn't miss. It was the perfect storm for them.

    It would certainly be a better game, but I still think they're the better team. They're even winning (over some good teams to boot) without one of their best players.

    At Hilton we have a chance against anyone...I think the way our team is gelling right now...very good chance at home. If we played there it would be tough!

    Our guards are taking care of the ball adequately. The best thing we are doing is we are not sitting on the ball the while shot clock tuns out as we dribble the ball out of bounds. We would do much better.

    Much better, yes, I'm thinking it'd be good game but they'd still come out on top. Drake's a very good basketball team whereas we are still a couple steps away.

    When he first went down, they said it could be as late as the mo valley tourney. So the short answer is, a while.

    I'm past that, and only worried about competing in the Big XII. A split this week would be huge

    Re: Could we beat Drake now?

    I really don't think that there is much point to it. Plus, I think it takes away from what Drake has been able to accomplish.

    Re: Could we beat Drake now?

    I am still not convinced Drake is as good as their record indicates. They are good, don't get me wrong, but they are really weak inside. 2 ?guys over 6' 7" ? And Cox is much more a 3 than a 4-5. They beat Ill. State and S. Ill in Des Moines, but haven't played any of the better MV teams on the road. I think they can win the Valley title, with 4 losses.

    It all depends on how healthy Josh Young is.

    Guard play is what gets it done in college basketball. Size isn't a huge deal, especially when every guy on your team is a threat from 3.
