    Recruiting

    This is an old article, but I just noticed this line: "Fennelly flew to Texas on a recruiting trip, hoping to find a junior-college guard"

    Any idea on JC guards in Texas we might be after?

    Re: Recruiting

    Not an answer to your question, but some more info.

    From a few days ago:

    Go Cyclones - ISU wants to move past transfers

    Fennelly said the Cyclones are scouring the country to see if there is anyone they could sign for the fall. He believes ISU may be able to bring in one player, most likely a guard, but that he doesn’t want to bring someone in just to bring someone in.
    I don't know if this means he's specifically looking for a guard (which doesn't make sense) or that there's a specific guard that he thinks might come to ISU (which does make sense, especially considering what was in the Register article).

    Actually - I think it makes perfect sense.

    We don't seem to recruit JC out of state very often.

    True for two-year jucos (Gintare Cipinyte has been the only 2-year juco from outside iowa since I started following the team). However, Denae Stuckey and Tegan Stuart were both one-year jucos from outside Iowa.

    I suppose, but a juco isn't really necessary in the backcourt this upcoming season, so any juco guard will only be around for one season where they'd really be needed. I'd just expect a juco post to be a priority.

    Re: Recruiting

    kids with a ton of athletic talent and some underdeveloped skills don't alway's fit in well at isu.They need to have pretty sound fundamentals or coach seems to look past them (3) point shooters..we need someone that can flat out break ankles (cross u over )..Denae Stuckey is the quickest girl on the team and could become that person.

    athletic talent + underdeveloped skills = turnovers. Turning the ball over a lot will get you on the bench very quickly when you play for Fennelly.

    I imagine one reason ISU doesn't go the juco route very often is because he tends to stay away from academic liabilities, and a lot of the better juco players are there for academic reasons.

    Correcting myself: I forgot Melanie Bremer. Bremer (NE) and Cipinyte (KS) both went to jucos in the midwest, however.

    Re: Recruiting

    What i was referring too was mostly those players that are slashers and can create tough matchups...texas A&M had a whole team of that kind of talent..we could use 1 or 2 playres of that type.

    Don't know where I read it, but I recall BF saying he was thinking of doing a 4 guard 1 post line-up some next season to take pressure off new posts. I would say our greatest need is for an athletic ankle breaking guard that can dish, is full of swagger and moxy, and can also shoot the 3 ala Shannon Bobbit.

    Update?

    So what is the over under on us adding any more recruits for next year? Anyone in the know? Is Bill pushing hard for someone, or more than likely to stand pat with the cards he has?
