    Who were the 2 shooting before the game?

    A tall black kid that could have Barnes and a shorter black kid that could have been Staten were shooting before the game. Am I right on who they were? I doubt Staten would be this far from home with school tomorrow but he shot pretty well. If the other guy was Barnes his shot doesn't have the best rotation but I'm not a scout. I wasn't alone in my dissing of his shot. I would have thought a guy with his rep would have a smoother stroke.

    Or....it was neither guy and just a couple of guys from Ames. They did sit at the front of the student section.

    I'm not sure who it was... definitely not Barnes though.

    was not Barnes. Barnes does have a very sweet stroke. Just some kid, I'm assuming. As for the other kid, I have no idea.

    The taller kid that looks like Barnes was Darnell Harris, a 2011 recruit from Wisconsin, would be a very good get.

    Yup, the taller one was definitely Harris.

    Eikmeier's shot is a little different too. It's irrelevant to me.

    Well, it wasn't going in very often either. I wouldn't care if it had topspin if it went in consistently. He did look like Barnes from far away but I didn't think it was him.

    Maybe they weren't going in because he was pulling up his pants after every shot.

    I'd swear on my life that it was a kid and another kid. Even from my vantage point I could tell it was 2 kids. One kid and then some other kid.

    I saw a 6'7 inch white guy. I don't know his name. He was getting a walking taco. Anyone know him?
