    Denver Post Article About McDermott and ISU

    I find it funny, that the most positive articles about us come from other state such as Nebraska and Colorado. What gives. Here is the article.

    I don't have a link, but there was a very glowing report in the Cedar Rapids Gazette by Mike Halis(sp) about GMac and the Clones after the Kansas game.

    Re: Denver Post Article About McDermott and ISU

    I liked this quote:

    "McDermott guided Northern Iowa, his alma mater, to the NCAA Tournament in each of the past three seasons. He earned a reputation for crafty X's and O's. But there is always some doubt about whether a former mid-major coach can recruit well enough to compete in a power conference. Considering what McDermott was able to accomplish in a short time last spring, Big 12 opponents must wonder if he already has begun building a monster. "

    Sorry, but I haven't been visiting a lot lately. I'm not sure whether the excellent article in the World-Herald today has already been linked [registration required]:

    Big 12 Men's Basketball: Cyclones' Johnson nice surprise
    BY LEE BARKNECHT

    The next time some recruiting geek corners you to blab about the star rating of a prospect he says your team must have to succeed, counter with the story of Iowa State freshman Wesley Johnson.

    He didn't play organized basketball last season. And at 6-foot-7 and 195 pounds, he's built more like a No. 2 pencil than a power forward.

    Yet somehow Johnson has nine double-doubles in 17 games this season - second in the Big 12 only to Texas superstar Kevin Durant's 10 - and is second in the league in rebounding to Durant at 9.0 a game. . . .

    http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pg=38&u_sid=2314694



    The article is much longer. Barknecht has ISU ranked 6th in the league.

    Although registration is required, I encourage people to do so. When they first required it a year or two ago, I was impressed with their privacy policy. I haven't been contacted by them since.
