    Re: Nice Hilton mention

    It's obvious how much the national pundits really pay attention to ISU basketball when they still mention Hilton as a tough place to play.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    This. Iowa State basketball(men) is mediocre wherever it goes.

    Re: Nice Hilton mention

    Andy Katz has always had great admiration for Hilton. I have heard in numerous times tell how hard it is to play there. Hopefully that is the case against Texas, the number 1 team in the land.

    Re: Nice Hilton mention

    We're still clinging to Hilton's reputation from years past. However, I still expect Hilton to be loud and rocking this Wednesday night when we host the #1 team in the country. It all depends on how well our team starts the game. If we are keeping it close for the first 10 minutes of the game, it will be loud and the crowd will get into it. This will carry through the rest of the game, unless the team suddenly decides to fall over and play dead.

    The key to the game Wednesday is to have a good start.

    So, not the same thing as the Duke game?

    Unless they get a start like Duke got, and then exactly like the Duke game.

    Re: Nice Hilton mention

    Hilton is still a tough place to play

    Loses in Hilton for MBB

    Year..Loses (conference) out of total loses for the season
    2010- 1 out of 4 loses
    2009- 6 (4) out of 17 loses
    2008- 6 (4) out of 18 loses
    2007- 6 (4) out of 15 loses

    We also took two top 10 teams into OT at Hilton, the closest we have come to beating any top 25 team under Mac. The problem isn't Hilton, it bad basketball.
