    I can't believe we won this game with Cato fouling out with 8:18 to go and only scoring 4 points...

    Still mindboggling how at 6'4, Kenny Pratt was so effective downlow. Say what you want about him, but he was one tough SOB.

    I remember watching that game from the theater/auditorium adjacent to Kemper as my friends and I could not get tickets for that game. It was insane, as if you you took a slice of hilton crazies and put them in the theater to watch the game. Not sure if I've ever felt so much Cyclone Pride than that weekend. Fortunately, we did have championship game tickets which made the Mizzou win all the better!


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    That was my second and last Big 8 Tournament. Never had so much fun being a Cyclone, even if I was only in sixth grade at the time...

    Did we beat KU in the finals of the B12 that year?

    Yes, that was an awesome game to watch again. The announcers even made mention that there were 1200 or more ISU fans that were watching it next door and were not able to get in. Cory Johnson should watch the tape of Pratt taking on guys a foot bigger than him and using his butt to get position and put it up on them. He didn't lean into these guys hoping the ball would go over them. Pratt was not scared and took it right at them getting position to where they could not block the shot.


    ďAlso, I met a lot of Iowa State fans and I donít want to leave any of that behind.Ē - DARIUS DARKS on Staying a CLONE!!!

    This wasn't the Big 12, it was the Big 8. Yes, we beat KU the next day as Jacque Vaughn drove the length of the court and missed a jumper, all in less than 4.0 seconds. Had never been so nervous at a game in my life...

    That was the last Big 8 tourney, right? I think that was the game that Jacy Holloway hit a 3 towards the end of the game. A kid from Kansas nailing a big shot to beat KU. How many times do you think he's relived that moment? Probably no more than Roy Williams has!!

    That entire weekend was so much fun. I got tickets to all of the games. I remember a lot of trash talking at the bars the night before the Missouri game. Missery fans are so obnoxious. It was my first experience with gracious KU fans when we beat them, I was shocked. I still have the final Big 8 Champions t-shirt. Haven't worn it much so its in great condition.
