    Lucca

    Everyone can obviously see that he can shoot the rock. I think his pull up three was the dagger last night. It was just cold blooded, and for the first time you could see the wind out of UWM's sails.

    However, I have been more impressed by his all around skill set. He has a very good handle, and is a great passer. It has been a long time since ISU has had a guy who could throw the entry pass like he does. He also plays good defense. I look for him to be starting by game 5.

    I think we will slowly see the newcomers take over in the starting lineup. Wes will start over Peterson, then JVB for Thompson, then Lucca for Haluska...

    I have been saying this since watching him in the CCL a year and a half ago. He may not be super athletic but the guy just knows how to play basketball.

    Re: Lucca

    I agree... Lucca is going to give teams problems. Whether he is a 6th man and their 6th man is defending... or a starting PG .... teams have to commit to him and that helps Brackins.

    -keep.

    Re: Lucca

    I thought his no look pass to a player in the corner for a wide open three was his best play of the game. It was beautiful.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Lucca

    I would like to see this as our starting lineup going into our first Big 12 game:

    Garrett
    Staiger
    Haluska
    Brackins
    AT

    I like bringing Ike, Petey, and JVB off the bench off some scoring punch for the second unit. And I think Haluska will be a starter all season, as he is our best defender, and our best mid range shooter.

    And then, for the first time in a long time, we will have some solid depth, and bench players who actually have game experience.

    Margin for error is not razor thin anymore.

    How about the sweet no look to Thompson that hit him in the face because he had his hands down at his side...

    Re: Lucca

    I only saw the game Friday. Somewhat disappointed he didn't look to shoot more. Glad to hear he did in the other games this weekend.

    It was obvious to me, however, that he is one of the smarter players on the floor and very take charge. Safe to say he's probably got the most experience of any of our guys.

    Looks to pass, handles the ball ok, and is a hard defender.

    Walked out of Hilton Friday night with no dillusions about Big XII crowns or NCAA runs - but I think this is a team, one picked for 11th(?), that can play it's way to maybe 8th or 7th. Good skills, very young and raw. A dominate inside presence and maybe a year's worth of experience away from being a team that could legitimately compete with the upper echelon of the Big XII.
