    Great Basketball Moments

    Finally, itís about time for basketball season to start. Iím not sure if anyone else feels this way, but my anticipation for a football season never comes close to the excitement I have built up for every basketball season. Iím not sure if itís due to growing up a Cyclone fan during the time of Johnny Orrís reign, or if itís because I was growing up a Cyclone fan during the Criner and Walden eras. Probably a little of both!

    Anyways, now that weíre on the verge of a new season, I canít help but think about the great moments in ISU basketball. Here are some of my favorites, what are yours?

    - Fizer stuffs it over Chris Mihm in Ď00 to secure Big 12 title
    - Jacque Vaughn driving to the hoop and missing at the buzzer for Big 8 Tournament Championship in 1996
    - Lafester putting up 54 against Iowa in Ď87
    - Tinsleyís two steals in the late minutes to beat Kansas in Lawrence in Ď00 for the first time in what seemed like forever
    - Hoibergís two free throws to beat #2 Okie State 84-83 in Ď92
    - Justice Thigpenís tip-in on an in- bounds pass to beat Minnesota in the fall of Ď91, after the Gophers had turned it over by hitting the above score board on their own in-bounds pass.

    OSU (Alexander?) guard missing 2 Ft's at end of game to give them the win.
    Loudest I've ever heard in Hilton.

    Re: Great Basketball Moments

    I would say the Double OT win over Kansas at Phog Allen Homan's senior year. ISU beat Kansas, the crowd, and the refs that game.

    Re: Great Basketball Moments

    Boddiker From Texas missing 2 free throws with a second left a few years back, ISU beats #11 Texas 78-77. That is as loud as I have witnessed Hilton.

    Re: Great Basketball Moments

    Hornacek's buzzer beater over Miami of Ohio and Ron Harper in the NCAA Tournament. Beating Michigan in the next round, I will never forget Elmer's dunk!

    Justice Thigpen from half court on a last second shot to beat Colorado and stop our away from Hilton losing streak.

    Horny buzzer beat against Ron Harper and Miami of Ohio.

    Mayer scoring 300 points in 1 minute to beat OSU.

    Boddacker (sp?) missing 2 free throws at the end of the Texas game in 2004. As a young'n (as in I wasn't around for the infamous OSU game) thats the loudest I've ever heard Hilton.

    Re: Great Basketball Moments

    Besides all of the ones already mentioned John Neal hitting those 2 threes against Iowa was pretty cool. Also, I always liked Fizer stuffing Kenny Gregory's dunk attempt in Hilton. Jake Sullivan's loooong three against KU his freshman year.

    Re: Great Basketball Moments

    Adding to the "loudest I've ever heard Hilton" comments...

    My lifetime as a Cyclone fan, let alone a basketball fan, is limited to my time as a student here, but I still have witnessed my fair share of jaw-dropping moments at Hilton.

    In 2004-05 when Texas Tech was visiting, the team was down early in the game to the Red Raiders 22-8. I don't know what caused Hilton to erupt, maybe it was just the fans trying to will the team back into the game, but the next basket made by ISU made the crowd erupt into a roar that had my ears ringing for the rest of the day. To me, that's the perfect example of Hilton Magic at its finest, where crowd noise brings a team back after being down by so much. Absolutely amazing.

    Re: Great Basketball Moments

    A few others:

    -Tinsley dribbling through the legs of the defender against Central Connecticut State in the NCAA first round in 2000.

    -Taking UCLA behind the woodshed in the Sweet 16 that same year.

    -Beating Texas in overtime in Austin 2 years ago, plus the OT game over No. 2 Kansas.

    Yeah, it was against KU. He just kept getting further and further out but they kept going in.

    Re: Great Basketball Moments

    What about the pass from Tinsley to Rancik with .7 seconds left to win against Nebraska, where Rancik made the layup.
    Kantrail and Tinsley jacking up threes from the spot on the floor where it said Hilton Colliseum and absolutley drilling them.
    The whole 99-2000 team
