    Xavier Silas dismissed from CU

    Good news for us. He was a really talented player. Their 3rd leading scorer.

    That is a MUST win. Because that will be our only win on the road.

    Doubt it will matter with or without him.

    He was the guy that absolutely killed us last year at Hilton.

    How is this possibly true? We beat them with him, so having him out can only help.

    Two words: At Boulder.

    It's always tough sledding when we play at Boulder, no matter who they have on their team.

    I absolutely agree with that - and OBVIOUSLY we're not a strong on-the-road team. Just saying that it wouldn't hurt to be at least a little positive.

    Re: Xavier Silas dismissed from CU

    Even when we are a good road team...Boulder is trouble. I like your attitude Angie. I wish I could share it. After being a diehard for 23yrs, I have seen most everything and if there is one thing you will learn is that more often that not if it can go wrong it will for ISU. Doesn't mean I don't root my butt off though.

    Re: Xavier Silas dismissed from CU

    Probably has to do a lot with the altitude and how it zaps our athletic endurance, but I definitely agree playing at Boulder isn't historically good for us....

    Hopefully this year we start proving that theory wrong...

    Re: Xavier Silas dismissed from CU

    Boulder is where we ended the "streak". Back in the early 90s and the height of Hilton Magic, we never lost at home, and went 2 + years without winning a Big 8 road game - against some real bad CU and KState teams.

    Justice Thigpen hitting a running 1/2 court buzzer beater to win at Boulder and end the streak!

    If I remember correctly, wasn't there some controversy as to whether or not it was a 3?

    I find it funny how people keep exaggerating where he shot it from. I heard 45 feet the other day, and 35 a while ago..Justus jumped towards the hoop from about a foot, possibly two, behind three-land, and landed pretty close to the hoop. Harrington (CU's coach) went nuts because he was convinced it was a two. So no, not a half court shot.

    The half court shot was when they hit one to beat our 99-00 team with Fizer & Tinsley.
