    Major Props to the ISU FANS IN MINNY!!!!

    Man were they loud! The I-S-U chant came across well over the tube...I think I even heard FIGHTS as well.

    Props!!

    Re: Major Props to the ISU FANS IN MINNY!!!!

    Yeah, I was really impressed with the Iowa State fans. I couldn't believe how they were owning the place, especially at the end of the second half. I think Clark's high flying throwdowns and Taylor's crazy shots kept the home court advantage to a minimum for Minnisota. Great to see.

    A little something from ESPN.COM

    There were plenty of noisy Iowa State fans in attendance wearing their red shirts, and they erupted when former Cyclones star Fred Hoiberg -- who is an assistant general manager for the Minnesota Timberwolves -- was shown on the scoreboard in the second half.

    Re: Major Props to the ISU FANS IN MINNY!!!!

    I was at the game tonight... I'd say about 1000-1500 ISU fans were there, mostly in both upper deck "end zones", and we were really loud in the 2nd half down the stretch. Most fun I've had at an ISU MBB game since the glory days of 2000!

    Re: Major Props to the ISU FANS IN MINNY!!!!

    I just got back from Williams Arena. Nobody can see this, but if I could put the smile I have right now on this forum, it would screw up the margins.

    I wanted this game. I wanted it bad. Almost as much as I want us to beat Iowa. All I ever hear about when I come up here is how great the Little 11 is. Last night, I went out to dinner with my significant other and one of her friends (who happens to go to Minny) and I nearly left the table when she had the gall to try to explain (regarding why we don't usually play each other), "Iowa State is not good enough to be in the Big 10..."

    I was proud to go into Minny and rep my school in what is basically my own backyard. This was a BIG BIG win for us. From a recruiting standpoint, this is REALLY going to hurt Minnesota, and even though yes, there were a LOT of ISU fans there (props to you all), that place got LOUD towards the end of the game. It was huge to see our young guys maintain their composure in an atmosphere like that.

    Last thought...when I said my prayers before I walked over the old, wooden catwalk that led from the stairs to the balcony seats, I realized how awesome Hilton is. Can't wait to get back!!!

    So I take it, like me, you are happier than Michael Jackson would be in a daycare center, right?

    Pretty much. (I can't think of a really good expression right now...maybe later)

    Side note...my favorite part of the evening...

    MN Student Section starts a "WE HATE IOWA...WE HATE IOWA" chant...at the end of which I give the entire arena a thumbs-up and scream

    "GOOD! SO DO WE!"

    Thought about a "WE'RE NOT IOWA" chant...but I think I got the message across.

    This sure can't hurt our Minnesota pipeline. Great win and a great visiting fan turnout, with some quality minutes from a Minnesota kid.

    Re: Major Props to the ISU FANS IN MINNY!!!!

    I too just made the trip back from Williams arena, and words cannot express how proud I am to be a Cyclone! There were a LOT of Cyclone fans there in the upper deck, and man were we loud towards the end!

    Chanting the ISU Fight song as Minny fans were filing out was so much fun.

    This was definitely in the Top 3 Cyclone games that I have been to. At first I thought it would be hard to cheer against my Gophers, but not so! I even converted my Dad (U of M alum) into a Cyclone fan for the day and had him wearing red.
