    Lucca

    Did anyone else think Lucca looked very impressive, (making 10 3's aside). They mentioned he was 10lbs lighter, he looked it. He also looked a lot more comfortable. He looked like he ws playing playground ball, some of his passes and once with a smooth almost reactionary behind the back with the defender right on him. Anxcious to see how the rest of the season goes

    Re: Lucca

    Yes. I keep getting more impressed with his play.

    Here's my curiosity question: What is the record for an ISU player for career 3-pointers against one opponent? Lucca has his 18 vs. Drake. I'm just wondering what the record is.

    He seems much more coordinated this year and he's playing much better defense!

    I thought our guards looked very comfortable with the ball - they looked confident in what they were doing. I guess that's what happens when you have a three-year starter at point guard and return four of five starters...

    Doesn't it make you think that we have the guard play to be successful? I love this feeling.

    I think confident is the word you're looking for. Garrett found it too. Hoping Gilstrap finds it soon.

    I don't think confidence is Gilstraps problem that last couple games. I think he's trying too hard to live up to the hype he knows is around him. I think once he realizes he just needs to play his game and not try to make a bunch of spectacular plays then he'll be fine.

    I feel for him struggling right now. I wonder what the game will be like when he busts out of his cage?

    Re: Lucca

    Aside from his feeble attempt at defending Josh Young on Drake's first possession, Lucca looked much improved.

    I'm glad someone said it. I didn't want to knock the guy but you might as well had me out there guarding Young...but I think most defenders would have trouble guarding him.

    Re: Lucca

    One guy behind us yelled, "You can't stop Josh Young" during the early scoring duel that he and Lucca had going on. Honestly, I expected him to be right. That kid is really good. I wish he had one more shot like the one he had two years ago.

    Yeah. The day he finally had the big game at home instead of the road, when we thought he might hit 50.

    I think that the day Marquis has the breakout, it'll be a monster effort that leaves jaws dropping all over, and Craig right there cheering him on.
