    Ames loses to Marshalltown in Substate.

    Marshalltown advances to State with a 51-50 win.

    I have no clue but Ames always has trouble with Mtown. I'll never get it and I went to AHS.

    Wow. That is the most underachieving program in the state of Iowa.


    Props to SEP for their first trip to state since 2000!!!

    Re: Ames loses to Marshalltown in Substate.

    This is one thing I have a problem with the State tourney selection of Iowa. A team like ames should be playing in the State tourney. Make this game a part of the tournament. Expand the field in the tourney and eliminate the sub-states.

    Re: Ames loses to Marshalltown in Substate.

    Ames had every opportunity to make it to state. All they have to do is step up and win a game they are favored in. You win, you go to Wells Fargo. If not, too bad.

    Re: Ames loses to Marshalltown in Substate.

    barnes struggled in the 1st.. in the 2nd he did better but he looked like he was kinda forcing it.. ames always chokes in post season... its sad...but it was a good game


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Still have to win the game...regardless whether it's played at the Well or in Ankeny.

    FYI..I also went to Ames High and know the problems they've had with M-Town and Ankeny.

    Re: Ames loses to Marshalltown in Substate.

    I'm not saying they shouldn't be there but playing in the CIML for any team trying to reach state is difficult. I'd say the same thing about M-town if they didn't make it. I'm just saying expand the field like they are in football.

    I disagree completely. That is what makes the postseason so much fun.

    Every team already makes the playoffs in basketball, which is different than football where half the teams do.

    Re: Ames loses to Marshalltown in Substate.

    Way to go Bobcats ! Graduated there in the 70's and the M-Town/Ames games always were a blast to watch. Both always had good teams. I don't live in MTown anymore, were the Bobcats that good this year? What were they, second in District?

    Re: Ames loses to Marshalltown in Substate.

    I can see the other side, and I admit half of my posts have been to get a reaction here, but when I played going to the UNI-dome was a great experience and the more kinds that can do it the better. Same goes with the Well. These are kids that'lll most will play no more after these games. Give them an experience to remember. Because it is for the kids.
