    Best game attended at Hilton?

    For me it was the Virginia game back in 04-05. This was a very exciting and loud game.

    Re: Best game attended at Hilton?

    I don't really have one. In the two years I went to ISU, the best games I attended were losses.

    ISU over Kansas and Danny Manning the year they won the title. Loudest I've ever heard, and if I recall, we beat them by 10 or so.

    Re: Best game attended at Hilton?

    Started going to games with my dad when I was 3, which would have been 1986. Had season tickets all the way through high school. Way too many games to call out just one, but I will never forget the night that Hilton actually moved, which was the Okie State game.


    I removed it.

    3. Winning the BigXII regular season and trophy presentation
    2. Beating Texas and Boddicker's two missed free throws
    1. The reason I am a fan, a random game when I was 3 or 4 in the upper deck shouting "Veeeee" for Victor Alexander

    Re: Best game attended at Hilton?

    texas game when boddiker (sp?) was at the line.. I don't think Hilton will ever be that loud again because that was just insane


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    That was the loudest and most exciting game I have ever been to.

    I barely remember that game (wasn't that old). I was there with my mom (dad was sick so I took his place) and I remember the PA announcer shouting "that's a foul" into the mic on accident on a D. Manning uncalled foul.

    Re: Best game attended at Hilton?

    Game against Texas Tech on February 12, 2005. This was when Bobby Knight was coaching them and they were ranked #16 at the time. Our guys (Stinson, Blalock, Staple, Homan and Clark) were down 24-10 with 10 minutes left in the first half. Stormed back to tie the game at halftime and then ended up beating them by 13 behind Homan's 23 points.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/boxscore?gameId=250430066

    It was a packed house because of Bobby Knight, I would think, and the atmosphere was electric during that run to tie it up before halftime. It was awesome.

    Iowa State vs. Kansas in 2003-2004. I sat behind the basket, front row. One of the loudest game ever.

    Every game during Fizer & Tinsley era. Hilton was ALWAYS packed then.

    I was fortunate enough to attend ISU from 1995-2000. Can't single out one game from that era...
