    That's a good list mjones.

    These 2 are key IMO:

    -less than 15 turnovers
    -less than 5 turnovers from taylor

    It's sad that we are wishing a single player has less than 5 turnovers by himself...

    I like everything you said but I dont feel like you will see good moves down low by our postmen unless gray and jiri stay down low.

    Re: What I want to see out of tonight....

    hey gotta start somewhere....and for taylor, that would be an improvement! i think its reasonable. Ulitimately I dont like seeing guards making more than 2-3 turnovers a game....but hey we'll see how my wishes turn out tonight!

    I just want to see progress. They have to use every game as a learning experience and a stepping stone to where they want to be. No more stupid turnovers, better passing and better inside play. I would like to see less than 15 three pointers taken tonight.

    Gray shows some flashes of being a presense, this would be a good game to give him the rock and see what he can do. build some confidence.

    we are going to win this one right? Savannah isn't even a real state!

    Re: What I want to see out of tonight....

    Gray has really kicked it up a notch and I really like what I have seen from him this year.

    As far as taking less threes, I don't have a problem at all with us taking 15 threes in a night, that is as long as they are within the flow of the offense. We have some good three point shooters, and we'll really need to utilize everyone we have that can shoot the 3 when Big XII season comes around. However, I do want us to get the threes from working the inside out game.

    Re: What I want to see out of tonight....

    I would love to see that turnover number come down of course. Did anybody see the article in the Rag today with the McDermott comments? He voiced his displeasure with the turnover issues saying that the team looks like they are not very well coached, and that does not make him happy. He also suggested that he may take steps to slow the offense down more until the turnover issue improves.

    Also found it interesting that he stated that Taylor is not a true point guard, but that he is the second-best option there right now. I guess that means that McDermott doesn't see Dodie ready to step into that spot yet.

    Re: What I want to see out of tonight....

    I would also add to the list that we need to really cut off the dribble drive. It seems like teams have been able to drive on our guards and get lay-ups. Considering that we have been more athletic at the guard position than our last few opponents, this should not be a problem. Defense is simply effort, it doesn't require a lot of skill. I hope McDermott has the team ready to come to work on both ends of the floor tonight. We need a good showing tonight. A team this young could use a confidence boost at this point. A poor showing tonight could lead to a lot of doubt.

    Re: What I want to see out of tonight....

    Something to keep in mind. I don't believe they have had much in the way of practice since the EIU game due to finals.

    Not sure if GMAC has had much time to fix anything or build a solid game plan.

    Hopefully we can play through it

    Re: What I want to see out of tonight....

    I want to See Clark play with confidence and start scoring a lot more than what he is doing. Right now I think the new system has killed his game. He is learning and will get better. I think he needs a 20-22 point outing.

    Also Sit Taylor down on the bench if he can't quit giving the ball to the other team. He is good but come on Mike. It's our ball. Keep it.

    I thought ISU typically didnt play games during finals week. I didn't bother to look at past schedules, but seems to me they usually had a weeklong break during finals week. I thought it might be a rule or something, apparently not. What gives this season? Maybe I am just imagining things...

    Absolutely! Let's keep the turnovers down and make sure we back on the winning track.
