    ISU vs. UNO

    Pretty lethargic game from many aspects...Haluska's shooting stood out, but there were many more ? marks for me after the game then answers.

    No one at the PG position stood out...DG struggled to get by his man as the Mavs felt comfortable playing off of him and I really don't remember him taking many (any?) outside shots.

    Vanderbeeken showed he is comfortable from outside and Brackins wasn't challenged as UNO had no one his size/ability to throw at him.

    BP pulled down 10 boards which must be a career high.

    The crowd was not into as could be expected with the opponent, weather, and the stunning news that the football team had lost.

    All in all, I thought ISU was not where I felt they would/should be at this time of year...hopefully this gives McD something to use to motivate them even more, as their going to have to play a lot better the reast of the season.

    Hamilton looked decent. Moves better than I thought and built pretty solid.

    No one at the PG position stood out...DG struggled 10 assists 1 turnover...lost the handle a couple of times to get by his man as the Mavs felt comfortable playing off of him and I really don't remember him taking many (any?) outside shots.

    Vanderbeeken showed he is comfortable from outside Did exactly what we need out of him and Brackins wasn't challenged as UNO had no one his size/ability to throw at him 4 turnovers . Quit avoiding contact...we want to go to the line

    BP pulled down 10 boards which must be a career high. Struggled from 3 point land

    The crowd was not into as could be expected with the opponent, weather, and the stunning news that the football team had lost.

    Hamilton is going to be good...Loved his foot work and did a nice job sealing.

    Buckley played better in the second half.

    Two best shooting guards were on the bench...Lucca and Wes.

    LA will probably be the only redshirt.

    AT rebounded very well...but struggled offensively

    Boozer shot well...struggled to stay in front on people defensively.



    Recruiting....Looking like Colvin or nobody in the early signing period.

    LA really looked like he good be a good physical player, and seemed athletic. Whether he redshirts or not, I'm going to look forward to seeing him out there.

    Yeah, when the two best shooters are taking their turns out there, this team could be a lot of fun to watch.

    Really, over Mann too? I haven;t head much about him so I figured he would RS. What will his role be?

    One question: Why is Pomlee redshirting, and not Mann? I was under the impression that Mann was the more raw of the two.

    Mann looked more raw on the court. He certainly got Mac's attention on his third foul, which came in just a few minutes of time. Mac was stomping his feet, and we could hear him yelling Mann's name.

    Don't pick up much by redshirting Mann...but another year of LA lifting weights and working on his offensive game will help us down the road.

    Plus Mann can step out and guard a 3 if we need him too.

    He would be a beast after another year with the weights. Could be something to see.

    It seemed an awful lot like a sleepwalk game from last year.

    One exhibition game in, it might be a bit early.
