    NEWSFLASH

    UNI is a very good team, and the principles that GMAC installed are still there, as are most of his players. ISU has four players back from a crappy year last year. So this loss is tough, but knowing the future of Iowa State will be nothing but better makes it easier to take. It is going to take some time to get them all playing together, and playing GMAC basketball.

    Re: NEWSFLASH

    just knowing that we should have won this game (and could have if Jiri passed up 5 to 10 of his shots) makes me confident we have a bright immediate future. UNI is the only NCAA tournament team we'll play before ohio state, and I thought we played them pretty well.

    Re: NEWSFLASH

    If you can call any loss a "good" loss this is one of them. Lots of things to go back and watch the tape on that they can teach and work on improving. I think this team is still quite a ways away from what it will look like by the end of the season. UNI is a good team, I think this is a loss that can really help this ISU team keep that hunger for getting better with every game.

    UNI is a good team.

    We also created too many opportunities for them tonight with silly mental errors and not being as physical as we were against MN.

    UNI showed discipline when it mattered and we didn't, and that made all the difference.


    Go Cyclones!!

    Re: NEWSFLASH

    I didn't think us being not physical was the problem. We got our butts kicked downlow against Minny but that wasn't the case tonight. Our problem was that we let Brook "bleepin" McKowen score 27 on us. He is not that good but we sure made him look that good. Our interior scoring was around the same as theres. Stout had 8 and Coleman 17 (6 coming on fastbreak dunks)

    I think we will be okay down the road...

    However, UNI is solid. Coleman and his free dunks were getting out of hand. Still cant believe Brooks put that many up on us! I'd be very suprised if UNI doesnt win out in-state this year

    They will. They will go NCAA, we will be NIT, Iowa will be sitting.
