    Lucca, Booz and Lee

    According to the Rag, all three could be gone. I guess they don't want to see what this team could do with Craig back. Hopefuly this doesn't change his mind on staying.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    Sounds like Cameron Lee is gone. I'm hoping that Lucca and Charles stay.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    Anyone think Lucca is upset with his performance? The way people built him up on this site, the only way he could have achieved expectations would be to make Michael Jordan look like an elementry school player.

    I will probably get lit up for this but so many had Lucca being the savior of the program, way too much pressure to put on a guy that had played zero Division 1 college basketball. No offense to Lucca intended by this comment but if he makes it to the German national team, they will not be competitive with the world.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    I would hope that if Lucca left that Boozer would stay, based on getting some of Lucca's minutes. It would stink if all of these guys left.

    I loved Lee's energy, but he was never going to see a lot of time with his very limited offensive skills.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    Whatever, I get lucca leaving playing pro...but how could you leave a team that has a shot at going to the NCAA tourney. Kids are such wussies anymore all about I and not about team. McDermott said it cleary in the article "guess its a sign of the times"

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    I think this is a case of these guys seeig their minutes drastically decrease with Craig staying and the recruits that are coming in. I really hope they don't leave though. All of these guys seemed like class acts.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    If all three of those guys leave that'll put a lot of pressure on Christopherson and the incoming guys to step up right away. Hopefully they can do what we hope they can do.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    Didn't see the Register link yet: ISU's Staiger considering return to Germany, ending run with Cyclones | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register.

    Sounds like Lee is confirmed to be gone, McD sees Lucca playing a bit more next year, and Booz is still on the fence.

    Isn't it the other way around?

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    My thoughts are best summed up by this guy. ->

    We knew Lee was leaving, but Lucca and Boozer will hurt. We were finally starting to get some experience on the team. If this happens we are going to have to hope that Christopherson and Colvin are ready to go right away. Depending on first year players is never the position you want to be in. I also think Oliver would have been redshirted and would have benefited from it. That has to be in doubt now.

    No.

    McDermott also said Saturday that reserve Charles Boozer is considering transferring, and that walk-on Cameron Lee will transfer to a lower-division program.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    I guess having a significant amount of depth isn't a possibility because every kid thinks they should play 40 minutes. Some of these guys need to figure out they are not that good and are lucky to get a free education.

    Re: Lucca, Booz and Lee

    My bold prediction....Lee gone of course.

    One of the other two will stay and one will go.

    The horse is already out of the barn. For Lucca to stongly consider leaving is telling; it means he isn't "all in" at ISU even if he stays.
