    2000 Game vs. Oklahoma

    After watching the replay of this game on Mediacom, I have some observations/thoughts:

    1. I don't have the official numbers, but that team dominated teams on the boards with a starting line-up going 6'3 (Tinsley), 6'1 (Horton), 6'1 (Nurse), 6'4 (S. Johnson), and 6'6 (Fizer). You don't need height to secure rebounds, rather toughness and superior positioning (leaping ability/athleticism doesn't hurt either). The toughness really stood out and I think this is something we currently need to address.

    2. What is former Assistant Leonard Perry doing these days? He was very animated/active on the sidelines, particularly on the defensive end...

    Re: 2000 Game vs. Oklahoma

    The one thing that stands out in my mind about that team is them being up by 5 points on somebody, with 8 minutes left to play, and every single person in the auditorium/watching on TV/in the universe knows that the game was over. Cyclones have won and there is NOTHING the other team can do about it.

    Unlike a couple years later being at OU and up by about 8 in the last 2 minutes just to lose.

    While we haven’t been the best shooting team the last several years the thing I think the team has missed the most is that physical presence – a big banger down low. That 2000 team (our best ever) despite being undersized was athletic and tough.

    Actually, it was 11 after Fizer's big 3 pointer. But thanks for reminding me....

    Re: 2000 Game vs. Oklahoma

    I remember in 1995 when we were down by six to third-rated KU, and came back and won the game.

    Even found a news article on it: Sports | Cyclones Hit Kansas -- Iowa State Pair Inflicts Damage | Seattle Times Newspaper

    That's how I remember them too. Tinsley and Horton could play keep away with the best of them. And then Tinsley would drive to the basket and get fouled with 5 seconds on the shot clock. Or Horton would drain a 25-footer.

    Yeah, they lost a lead against Michigan State but that was their only loss in regulation after getting beat by Cincinnati early in the year. They won 29 of 31 games during that stretch with the only two losses being in overtime. Incredible!

    The Colorado loss that year just ticked me off.
