    All-Century Team

    Voting is open for ISU's all-century team. There are 15 spots on the team and 8 are filled automatically by the former All-Americans: Waldo Wegner (1933-35), Jack Flemming (1935-37), Gary Thompson (1955-57), Zaid Abdul-Aziz "Don Smith" (1966-68), Jeff Grayer (1985-88), Fred Hoiberg (1992-95), Marcus Fizer (1998-2000) and Jamaal Tinsley (2000-01).

    The rest are voted on by a 15 person panel and an online vote. Bios of all nominees and a link to the vote can be found here. Just a warning, you'll have to write-in Kenny Pratt. Or not.

    Re: All-Century Team

    Which Century are we voting for? 1900 or 2000? Sorry, i'm a smart-***.

    Great link by the way.

    Re: All-Century Team

    That was a tough one to fill out, since my basketball knowledge only extends from the 80's on. I couldn't bring myself to vote for Shirley, Homan, Sullivan, & Michalik, because I'm sure there were better players in the past.

    Alexander, Hornacek, Willoughby, Meyer, Blalock, Thigpen & Cato

    Re: All-Century Team

    Big V, Horny, Dead-eye, Ivy, Ronnie, Utoff, and of course Stevens. Basketball history before Orr was pathetic, unless you go back decades before that. I did include a couple pre-Orr.

    Re: All-Century Team

    Jacy Holloway? Anyone else miss the pointguard that could run the slowdown offense? I wrote him in just because I miss that type of player right now. Oh for the four corners....

    No, I miss a guy like Ron Bayless, who would be another good write-in vote. Jacy was consistent and didn't turn the ball over though.

    Re: All-Century Team

    Thigpen, Homan and Sullivan just missed my cut.

    Justis and Homan were studs but didn't have a great cast around them at all times. Sullivan did a lot for his ability but was a lot better when JT was creating.

    [QUOTE=C.John;78272]Ron Harris[QUOTE]

    My ISU basketball highlight came from blocking a Ronnie Harris shot during a pickup game at State Gym (after his eligibility had expired). After he got over the shock, he took a "special interest" in me and my recollection is that I didn't touch the ball again nor did I get within ten feet of the basket when attempting to rebound!

    My personal brush with greatness...

    what about shawn bankhead.. is that how u spell his name??
    and then Stevie Johnson!!


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    No love for Jake Sullivan. That guy did more with less than anybody who has ever worn an ISU uniform. Well, maybe him and hornacek

    If Floyd and Larry would have played Stevie at the 4 throughout his career, instead of being stuck on the wing for 3 years, he would have had a great 4 years.
