    ISU vs Nebraska Predictions

    Okay, since no one else is going to start this, any predictions on the game tomorrow? Ever the optimist, I'm saying 73-65 Clones. Christo has a big game (he's due).

    Nebby by 7 due to our poor PG play.

    Hope I am wrong.

    Nebraska 63, Iowa State 62. We blow a 3-point lead in the final minute.

    Neb wins after slap on the press after trailing by 10 at halftime and again the Clones are not ready for it.

    Re: ISU vs Nebraska Predictions

    Repeat of football. Its a struggle but we get it done late with free throws. Yes, I just said we hold on late by MAKING free throws. I think we will finally see this team get over the hump by overcoming adversity in the final minutes.

    Re: ISU vs Nebraska Predictions

    Hope - ISU by 10-12, Brack has a big night against an undersized NU team.

    Probably will happen - NU by 2. Sadler gets his guys to hustle, and it's on the road for us. How long since we've won a Big XII road game, again?

    We've got to have penetration from Diante, smart play and good hands from Gilstrap and Dendy, Lucca and Scotty getting open off good screens from the bigs, and everyone finding a way to get Brackins open. And, we have to crash the boards and take the ball to the hoop! High-percentage shots are lacking from this team; also, generally, passing the ball in the second half is not good. I don't want to see Gilstrap dribbling the ball around for 25 seconds and then taking it all the way to the hoop, only to throw up a stupid shot or get called for a charge. Drive and dish, pick and roll. Sometimes I wonder if our guys even know what these concepts are?

    Was it Eustachy who said in order to win games at a high level, you need to outrebound the other team, especially on the offensive glass, and you need to make more free throws than the other team attempts? This exactly the OPPOSITE of what happens to us; we get outrebounded by 5-15 boards a night, KILLED on the offensive glass for 8-16 2nd chance points from the other team, and rarely take the ball to the hoop. When a guy does drive, there is almost no thought to a pass down low or to the outside.

    We've got the talent; think about it, Diante taking it in hard and then passing out to Lucca for wide-open 3's, rather than passing around the perimeter and trying to have Lucca outrun the other team's players around a screen, only to not set his feet before shooting? Diante playing the high-low with Brackins, and us spreading the floor more to create him some space down low? Brackins using his quickness and good hands to pass it to Hamilton or Gilstrap across the lane when he gets double and triple-teamed, so we truly have more than one weapon? Is this too hard for our staff, or for our players, to understand?? I hope not, and I hope we really kick it into gear for the rest of the season.


    My first ISU basketball game - Fred Hoiberg was on the court.
    My first ISU football game - Paul Rhoads was on the sidelines.
    But they hadn't yet reached their full potential.

    SO PROUD that things have come full circle. #cyclONEnation

    Re: ISU vs Nebraska Predictions

    If the effort that this group played with Wednesday was a trend, and not a tease, then I think we win.

    If that effort was a tease, then we lose another game.

    Re: ISU vs Nebraska Predictions

    We've got to take advantage of possible Big 12 road wins when they present themselves. I think we do and win by 8 after Brackins and Diante have huge games.
