    Best Play

    In hopes of helping Friday along again, I was thinking of the best single plays in Clone history. Many Troy Davis runs come to mind, but becuase of the state of the program then I don't think I would put any of them at number one for me.

    I'm going with Jamaal Tinsley's steal from Nick Collison near the end of the game @ KU in 2000. We were coming on hard and had to get a stop. The ball went in low to Collison who was being guarded by Fizer or Paul. Tinsley ran the baseline up behind him and popped the ball out. Great steal and Tinsley took over the last 5 mins of that game. Ending with a dish to Fizer of a fall a way J to win.

    What'd ya got better?

    Re: Best Play

    I think the best play in Cyclone history is no debate (Seneca), but as far as some of the rest...

    One of my all time favorites is Horton drilling a 3 from the Kansas logo in the phog.

    Re: Best Play

    Stinson's teardrop to beat KU in OT 2 years ago is a great one that comes to mind. It was a simple play, but his jump stop prevented the possibility of a charge call (as the defender had set up to take the charge rather than jump to block the shot) and he just floated it over the defender.

    Another recent one would be Curvey's interception return for TD to seal the win against CU.

    It was great, but we were playing for the Big 12 title in Bball.

    Hornacek for 3 against Miami of Ohio with Ron Harper. Big Dance. Last second shot. I jumped through the roof and I am white.

    Re: Best Play

    Who could forget JJ Moses and the reverse against Iowa? How about Billups and the punt return for a touchdown against Pitt?

    Re: Best Play

    I agree with the Curvey interception and return for a TD against Colorado. They had all the momentum, things were looking down, what a great play. The return was also great, with the Colorado player almost cathing him and Curvey putting a late "move" on him and getting a "block" from Moser. Man we were going nuts in my section of the stands!! Go Cyclones!!!

    Was this the first play of the game? Just trying to remember great memories.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Best Play

    I was sitting on press row in Minneapolis for Hornacek's three against Miami. Stood up and cheered. That was frowned upon, unless you're a hawkeye beat reporter in Kinnick press box.

    One of the best plays I ever saw was a monster Grayer jam over a KU big man. At the time, it looked like he literally jumped ove the KU dude.

    I do believe so. If I rememebr right, they had been faking it for a couple weeks. Then they actually ran the reverse and it went the distance.

    Ahhhh, good times.

    Re: Best Play

    I tend to lean towards Jacy Holloway hitting his only shot of the game with 40 seconds left to beat #5 Kansas in the final Big Eight Tourney (1996). It cost them a #1 seed, and let us cut the nets down in Kemper. I think we ended up a #5 seed that year. Gosh I loved that team!

    It was the first play of the game. IIRC, Kampmann bit hard, lost contain and JJ scooted around him with ease.

    Was it Greg Dreiling (sp?). If I remember correctly, he faked out Calvin Thompson and drove baseline for the dunk

    I had to edit because I wanted to mention Marv Seiler's 77 yard run in 1992 to upset Nebraska
