    Wow, I sure hope ISU fans are not banking on postseason in basketball, you are going to be very disappointed with the season if that is the case.

    Have you seen anything from the team to get you excited? There have been several on this board making Staiger the Savior of ISU basketball as well as several other guys that have not played division one basketball.

    Re: iowa state basketball to the postseason

    I would be sooooo happy with the postseason. Even the NIT sounds good. At least when I was in school '93-'98, when football struggled, we had some good bball teams to enjoy.

    Re: iowa state basketball to the postseason

    With Wesley Johnson this team had a good shot at the nit now I am not so sure.

    Who gets to the NCAA tournament first ISU or Iowa under their current coaches?

    I wouldn't count on it. I would be happy with 16 wins.

    Re: iowa state basketball to the postseason

    thats pretty easy not just because im a iowa state fan but just because of these things

    Iowa state has a little more experience
    Not saying iowa has bad players but...i think isu has more athletic players personally iowa has no one that really jumps out at me and makes me say wow hes good

    Re: iowa state basketball to the postseason

    Even if Lucca missed the entire year, I woulld be confident that we'll see significant improvement this year, barring other key injuries.

    1) We have 2 experianced point guards returning. Both guys looked better as the season went on. The PG is the leader of the team on the floor. Now we have 2 guys that know the offense and know what the coach wants out there. Plus, we have a possibly more talented freshman point guard who will now have peers who can help him speed up development.

    2) We should have better outside shooting. Late in the season, Haluska's shot came back. Steiger and Eikmeier should help. Petersen should get some open looks. Garrett really started to get into the lane late last season. His added strength and Buckley should allow this team to have a few threats to penetrate which will open things up on the outside.

    3) We really didn't lose anything that will be too hard to replace. Wes was hurt last year and was not his normal self. Sure, he had a few good games, but really wasn't a huge factor last year. Clark was an excellent defender, which will be missed, but he really didn't give us much offensively. Its not his fault, he just didn't fit well into the structured type of play that McDermott runs. Hubalek will be missed, but our outside shooting was so bad last year that teams could sag and really take away our inside game. The likely increase in our outside shooting and penetration really will replace the production of Hubalek.

    4) We return some depth. Last year we had 3 guys returning that played. None of them were guards. We brought in all of those new guys and expected them to run a complicated offense. Thats hard to do. This year, we return exponentially more experience, and infinately more guard experience. That will be HUGE.

    Re: iowa state basketball to the postseason

    I think we will between 11-13 games in the non-conference schedule, and hopefully between 5-7 in conference. That would give us 18-20 wins, maybe good enough for the NIT or that new CBI tournament, which is a joke btw, but I would take it.

    Re: iowa state basketball to the postseason

    And the token optimistic thread before the season has started is here again... I really don't know what to expect from this team but I am not expecting that they'll make the postseason. Too much youth and questions to really be thinking that right now. Brackins and DG will have to be more consistent and much more improved than they were last year, Staiger has to be the real deal, and the new guys will have to step in and be consistent contributors for us to succeed.

    If we win all our non conference games, we can go to the NIT. We should have Drake's number this year. It is pay back time.
