    Gilstrap update 12/18

    Attended the game again tonight. I didn't arrive until about 8 minutes left in the first half. The team Marquis played against tonight was the best of the three I've seen. It was a close game when I arrived. I'm not sure what Marquis had accomplished prior to my arrival but the remainder of the first half was uneventful.

    Early in the second half, Marquis made a great defensive block but went down hard. He came up limping and was removed from the game. After a few minutes in the locker room, he came back out and seemed OK.

    It was about a 10 point game (GCCC was up) when Marquis got back in. I saw something from him I hadn't seen before. He completly took over the game. He scored something like 12-14 straight points by himself. On defense, he had a couple blocks, a steal, and two straight powerful rebounds. It was amazing to watch.

    Yes, I know, its JUCO competiton but tonight, he owned them.

    Another piece of intel, there was a technical on the other team and Marquis was the guy they sent to shoot the free throws. I guess the coach has a little faith in his ability to shoot.

    A side note, I sat next to a dude with an Auburn shirt on. We had a great conversation. Like any ISU fan, he is optomistic regardless of his feelings about the situation. He said most Auburn fans view Charles Barkley kind of like that crazy uncle that makes holidays entertaining but your really glad he doesn't live in the same town. I expressed our thanks for them taking Chizik off our hands.

    Next game is 12/28 so I'll report back then.


    Scuba out....

    Also, think he'll be good enough to step in and start next year?

    I think he'll probably start from day 1, since he's athletic, strong, quick, powerful, big, and a great scorer. He's also a pretty good defender. If he wasn't, he probably wouldn't have gotten offered.

    Re: Gilstrap update 12/18

    Plus with Gilstrap and Colvin everybody will be playing there natual positions. Lucca still probably backing up the 3 but for the most part is back at the 2. Buckley and Colvin at the point. Should be interesting because the 2 guard is going to get pretty crowded: Christopherson, Lucca, Wes, Lee, DG?, Boozer.

    I'm really excited for the potential of next years lineup.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Still pretty thin in the post in terms of scoring potential.
