    ISU vs. NW'ern MBB Predictions

    Well? What do you think?

    Some people might be disappointed in not having a shot to beat a ranked Notre Dame team. I know I am a little bit. However, the score was 72-58 in favor of Northwestern, and it means they seem to be a pretty solid team themselves. Winning this next one might be a better win than some might have originally thought.

    PREDICTION:

    This seems to have the makings of two outcomes (in my opinion); either a close victory or a blowout, both in favor of the Cyclones. NU proved to be a good team when they beat ND, but was it a fluke? I don't think so. I think NU will play us tough coming off of a big win and carrying a little bit of swagger. However, Mr. Brackins and company will have something to say about the outcome of the game, and the Cyclones will win their closest contest of the season.

    I think they come down a little from their ND victory, and we step up some more from our St. Louis game.

    Their defense looks like something that we can shred over and over and over.

    I look to get back over that 80 point mark.

    It will probably be low scoring, at least lower than most of our other games. Probably in the low to mid 60's. I'd say 67-62 ISU.

    Re: ISU vs. NW'ern MBB Predictions

    I look at all the open three-point looks that NW had against that zone, and I just think we'll blow that thing open.

    The other option is to go ice-cold like Notre Dame did and lose....

    I don't think that will happen though.

    If they're missing shots and we're running, it's going to be a lot of easy transition buckets (translated: dunks) before they can even set the zone.

    Re: ISU vs. NW'ern MBB Predictions

    I'm looking for a score similar to tonight's game....NU will likely slow things down and limit possessions. I think they played above their ability tonight, and won't tomorrow. I believe we played below our ability tonight, and won't tomorrow.

    I'm saying:

    ISU 65
    NU 50

    That is one thing I really like about this team, that we can play either way. If we're running, fantastic. If we're playing halfcourt, that's fine, too.

    I think this looks like a fun matchup for us.

    The best part of this is that you called them nerds on the internet, to other folks hanging out on the internet late on Friday night.

    But it's a good point. We'll pound them back to the library.

    Re: ISU vs. NW'ern MBB Predictions

    Well, seeing that Notre Dame waxed everybody they played by around the 20 point mark, (give or take a few) and 7-0 before tonight...
    Northwestern's schedule looks like this: (with only the 1 loss.)

    11/04/09 vs. Robert Morris (Ill.) -- Exhib. W, 78-49
    11/13/09 vs. Northern Illinois W, 77-55
    11/18/09 vs. Butler L, 67-54
    11/22/09 vs. Tennessee State W, 69-62
    11/24/09 vs. Liberty W, 69-53
    11/27/09 vs. Notre Dame W, 72-58
    11/28/09 vs. Iowa State 7:00 p.m. CT (Big 10 network)

    I'll go with ISU in about the same 10 point victory. 75-65
