    Ames game at Hilton

    Last night, I heard that Ames High sold 1100 tickets yesterday (the first day that tickets went on sale) for the Waukegan, IL game to be held at Hilton.

    It might have been 5000 if HB had picked ISU!

    I heard that the game was called due to a lack of interest.....

    Re: Ames game at Hilton

    Actually, 1100 on the first day is good. I don't know if this was just the AmesHigh ticket office or if it included Ticketmaster.

    This should be a fun game. The best high school game I've ever seen was in the Waukegan gym in the sectionals (Waukegan v. Zion-Benton double-overtime with clutch play after clutch play).
    Then our ZBs got pummelled in the super-sectional.

    They should have it in Carver. They are experts at accomodating tiny crowds.

    Re: Ames game at Hilton

    I would rather go watch Norwalk High School. Nobody on either of these teams will be playing for Iowa State.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I, for sure, would have gone to at least a couple Ames games this year if Barnes had picked the good guys. Now.....not so much. Honestly, it would just be too hard.

    Re: Ames game at Hilton

    Although it will be painful, I don't want to miss this game. Rarely do we get an opportunity to watch high school basketball of this caliber. It will be the toughest game of the season for Ames. Hopefully, we will also get to see our guys at their best. Last season, I don't think we ever really saw all that HB could do.

    Would have gone if there was an ISU commit playing. Not a chance now.

    I know about 20-30 people that had planned on going, but after the kick to the junk.....not a chance.

    He may not have committed to ISU but he is still projected as the number one NBA pick after his freshman year in college. I don't see why you wouldn't want to go watch someone like that?

    That's what TV is for. Besides, I really don't follow anything above college sports.

    Maybe because we as Cyclone fans have decided to treat hb how he treats us. We don't matter, so he doesn't matter.
