    Thumbs up ISU vs Texas Tech - Thoughts/Prediction?

    How much of a chance do we have at starting a Big 12 road game winning streak?

    Both ISU and Texas Tech stand at 12-5 overall. However, ISU is 1-1 in the Big 12 after winning at Nebraska. Texas Tech is 0-3 in the Big 12 after getting blown out by Oklahoma St. and Kansas, and losing to Missouri.

    If this game were in Hilton, I would predict this as a win without much of a doubt. Our team needs to continue playing with energy and 110% team effort.

    I think this is an opportunity to make a statement. We played Texas well. Winning two road games in the Big 12 would be HUGE for our team. Then we get a shot at Kansas. Being 2-1 going into the KU game would be huge for our team's confidence, and the confidence in our crowd. Hilton will be twice as loud for Saturday's game if we can beat Tech on the road.

    ISU - 77
    Tech - 71

    This is as good of opportunity to win on the road as we will have the rest of the year. I'm not saying we can't and shouldn't win more road games, just that this is probably the easiest we have left.

    We take care of bidness in this one

    ISU 83
    Tech 67



    No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda

    Re: ISU vs Texas Tech - Thoughts/Prediction?

    Need this win as well. Agree that it would be huge for this team to open up 2-1, with 2 road wins, and would bring huge momentum going into the showdown this Saturday.

    We will need better ball handling in this one and may need to hit some clutch FT's down the stretch. Should be another close game. I'll go 75-72 Clones.

    Our L's don't look so bad duke, nw, cal, uni and texas. If we win the games we should like this tech game, we have a good shot at the tourney. We do need a big W like KU on Sat.

    Re: ISU vs Texas Tech - Thoughts/Prediction?

    This is a must win for Tech. I don't like our chances since it is on the road. Will be relatively close, but I think the home team takes it.

    Anyone know the status of Lucca's knee? Is he moving around fine?

    Re: ISU vs Texas Tech - Thoughts/Prediction?

    Offensively we need Staiger to go off a little bit. Need double figure scoring out of him.
    Defensively we need to lock down on Roberson and force him into taking bad shots. Which he will do.
    And of course win the turnover and rebound battle.

    Re: ISU vs Texas Tech - Thoughts/Prediction?

    If we win, it will be another ugly game. But all we need is the W.

    In true Cyclone fashion, I'll say that we blow one that we should have/could have had. Tech wins 65-58.

    Re: ISU vs Texas Tech - Thoughts/Prediction?

    Iowa State hasn't won in Lubbock in almost 10 years (March 1 , 2000)...it's the longest streak against an opponent in the Big 12. And only once have they been within 10 points in Lubbock during that stretch (2006). It is a very difficult place to play, Tech's only loss at home was in OT to Missouri.

    The Raiders are going to be desperate for a win and have some talent to put up points.

    Expect Tech to be a 5-8 point favorite.

    I need at least one more night to sleep on this one. This game to me is the ultimate tossup game.

    ISU wins an ugly nailbiter, 62-59

    Re: ISU vs Texas Tech - Thoughts/Prediction?

    I think our energy will dwindle a little bit compared to last game and Tech will want this one more than we do Tech by 8.

    Really hope im wrong

    This, and it's what I'll predict all season to be honest. A lot of game similar to Saturday where at times we'll look capable of running away with it, but we end up winning a close game.

    These were my thoughts as well....especially the part about them being desparate for a B12 victory.
