    Chances of Beating Stanford

    Stanford will be a huge challenge for the Twister Sisters. We could play our best game of the year and still lose by 20 points. They are very deep and talented. Our guards will really need to concentrate on getting back on defense. There bigs really transition well. I think we will need to slow the tempo down and really be eficient on offense. For us to have a chance the game needs to be in the 60's.

    I think we have a chance to beat anybody we play.

    After last night, Iowa State can beat almost anyone.

    Re: Chances of Beating Stanford

    Didn't we play Them this year? I thought we got beat by 40 points or something. I don't think we were playing that well at them time though.

    To be honest......I think we will need 13+ Threes and 20 FT makes to win this game.

    Re: Chances of Beating Stanford

    The loss earlier this season was before we figured out how to play defense. It was two games before the blowout loss to Iowa. The Drake game following the Iowa game is when we finally started playing like we play now.

    If we lose by 20 points we did not play our best game of the year.

    We had an off weekend when we played them last. Between them and San Diego St., we allowed 75 ppg that weekend. SDSU only averages 64 ppg for the season and Stanford 76. We are a defensive team and should be able to hold them under their season average.

    Also, we have been good on offense during the tournament averaging 75ppg. Our defense was a question last night, but that was a bad match up and MSU played a game of their life. Good thing is that Stanford doesn't have anyone taller than us.

    We can win the game, but it will be a tough game.

    Re: Chances of Beating Stanford

    I would rather have Stanford think "hey we beat this guys pretty good earlier this year" then us winning earlier this year or it being a close game

    After what I witnessed last night I think anything is possible.

    Re: Chances of Beating Stanford

    The last time we played them, we were 7-for-16 from 3-point range. Of those 7 we made, NONE were by our starters. If that changes, we have a chance to win it.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.
