    ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    Just keep in mind that we're one play away from losing our first exhibition game! FIRE G-MAC! RAH!!

    Just kidding. What can I say about the game? I fully expected the team to struggle, and during the game I expected the team to lose. What a clutch win, however. Was that Dodie Dunson making the three at the end of the game? Not a bad shot for a true freshman.

    Hilton Magic is not back yet, but it definitely showed at the end of that game. It'll take an upset or two for the pride to return, but this is definitely progress. I don't think I've yelled that loud at a basketball game since the 2004-05 season.

    The new scoreboard and video ring took my breath away when I first got in the arena. Money well spent, IMO.

    I loved G-Mac yelling at the players during the game. He's the antithesis to Danny boy, that's for sure. Even during the media conference before the game, Greg admitted that the team wasn't ready to play, and that it'll take a game to smooth out the last bit of the wrinkles.

    The first portion of the game was very shaky, but if we played like we did for the rest of the game, there's no doubt we would've won by 10.

    G-Mac has a huge presence out there, doesn't he, Airwalke? I was kind of surprised he didn't get called on being out on the court so much - you can tell he's really into every play.

    Re: ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    What an amazing finish! That was the most fun I've had at an ISU basketball game since I've been enrolled here. It was great watching GMAC yell at the players and give them guidance. A huge contrast from someone else I know. Also, I was impressed with the agressiveness of Wesley! Not one part of me misses Taggart now. They can only improve from here!

    You beat me to it! I'm so used to all the "Fire Mac" banter it was just instinct. Definitely nice for a young bunch of guys to get off on the right foot and have something to build on. Hopefully the shooting will come around, but should be a fun season!

    Re: ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    I've gotta think we can win just as many league games as last yr (6).

    I saw great effort on the defensive end in many instances. The perimeter D is a little shaky, but the freshman were very impressive. Wesley is gonna be a stud. Cory Johnson didn't back down to that massive oaf that EA put out there. Dodie took a couple of questionable shots down the stretch, but had 14 points. That was the biggest surprise IMO. Also, Cory McIntosh doesn't hit a shot all game, then hits a clutch 3 in the waning moments, followed by Rahshon's 3. Cory Mac didn't go 37-0 last year for nothing.

    We're gonna miss Jiri against Minnesota.

    Re: ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    i was impressed defensively the offense was a little shakey mainly do to the fact that they have only been in the system for 2 weeks now. Im sure it will come around. besides that the effort going after rebounds and loose balls really gets me excited for the future of ISU basketball

    Re: ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    One of the things that impressed me most tonight was how well we employed our new man defense - hedging at the right times, getting back to our man in good fashion, and kept a LOT of ball handlers from penetrating. Going to be very useful once conference play rolls around.

    Re: ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    Cyclones.com said it was Rashon who made that clutch 3-pointer at the end of the game. I was too busy, you know, picking my eyes from off the ground to take a note of who it was.

    Re: ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    McIntosh & then Clark both hit clutch, CLUTCH threes. Fun game to watch, gotta say. For the first time they've all played together against an unknown opponent, they did pretty well. And held when they needed to. Look forward to the excitement coming back to Hilton. Keep cheering everybody - and Cyclone Alley, like what you're doing.

    A coach that actually will coach his team in the game? It was...very confusing. He rarely...sat down! *gasp*

    Congrats on your first "win" G-Mac - I hope you have many, many more.

    Re: ISU vs. EA Sports Discussion

    Just incase anybody wanted to know... Here's what EA/Global did the past 2 nights.
    For the second straight year EA Sports came into the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum and handed Utah State a rare home loss. The collection of former college stars led for most of the game and withstood a late Aggie run for a 67-60 win. The defeat, however, won’t go against USU’s incredible home record (127-11 over the past nine seasons)

    Preseason all-MVC selection Anthony Tolliver had 24 points, eight rebounds and a pair of game-winning free throws with 20 seconds left in overtime, lifting Creighton past EA Sports, 80-76, in overtime action on Thursday night. Tolliver also blocked a potential game-winning three-pointer with less than five seconds on the clock to seal the exhibition game win. Creighton, the preseason favorites in the Missouri Valley Conference and a team ranked 23rd in the USA Today/ESPN
