    Eikmeier co-captian of all state tournament team & video link

    If you have not watched the OWH video for the state championship game you need to. It has nice interview with Wes and is a highlight reel for Wes. It is under the ONLINE EXTRA Wolrd Herald Video "It's about the trophy - not the points - for Bergan's Eikmeier"

    Omaha.com Sports Section

    Quotes from the Bergan Coach from the Omaha World Herald about the 4th quarter.

    Paulson took that opportunity to discuss one simple strategy.

    "I told our guys to get Wes the ball," he said. "We wanted it in his hands as much as possible in that fourth quarter."

    The Knights followed orders, and Eikmeier did the rest. He scored 12 points in the final period, including a pair of baskets at the start of the quarter that gave Bergan some needed breathing room.

    this could be the start of somthing great..


    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."

    That's encouraging. He's got some decent size.

    I will back this up. I sat by him at the Oklahoma State game. I am 6' and he was a couple inches taller than me.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
