    Back From the Game

    Okay, back from the game and after a stop to eat 4 hot dogs. Here's a few points.

    a) We played like crap for 66.7 - 75% of the game and still won by double digits.

    b) We probably underestimated the athleticism of SLU a little bit.

    c) The refs in this game were about 85% horrible.

    d) ISU fans vastly out numbered the number of SLU fans. Good job

    e) Could have run away with this one but we decided to miss a few shots and SLU take advantage of it during the 2nd half run.


    We just couldn't get a lot of shots to fall..shoot better tomorrow and it'll be a better outcome than a win by only 11

    If we can make our shots...seriously we stopped our own run. It wasn't even SLU's defense. It was Brackins missing shots


    Anyway, there were actually a LOT of ISU fans there and it got semi loud a few times in there.

    We heard you on the radio. GMac mentioned that Gilstrap thought it sounded like a home game. You guys made an impact.

    Haha...thanks. Maybe, but nowhere even close to what Hilton is like when it's rockin'. Just wait til Gilstrap hears Hilton really loud..


    McDermott was actually really happy after this win. I was near where the players came on and went off the court. He gave us a smile and pumped his fist a little bit walking off.


    Seriously a good test of a game but I honestly thought we kind of played like crap for most of the game.

    I don't think the guys disagree with you. We won a grind-out game, and we didn't do that before.

    Gilstrap was OK the whole time.

    Garrett sounded OK.

    Dendy--jury's still out. Less swelling than last time, Mac said. Could be back soon.

    Dendy didn't play after he tweaked something. I am apt to say it was his knee but he had some padding around his calf coming out at 2nd half.

    Gilstrap is fine. He was fine for some of the game. He had a few BS calls against him if I remember correctly though so he didn't play as much in the second half.




    There was about 2 or 3 times where SLU traveled really obviously and no call ever. Also a few times where ISU got all ball and fouls were called. Refs were really bad.

    That's reassuring, since he had so many boards.

    Seems like there were more offensive foul calls than normal.
