    Tourney hopes

    I think we have to to win 2 of the next 5 to keep a pulse.
    We go to OU, BU and MO and host CU and KSt.
    That puts us at 3-6 then @KU 3-7

    Then we go to CU and KSt and host 4 games.
    Win 5 of those 6 gets us to 8-8 then 2 in the B-12 Tourney

    most likely a 7 seed because of the conference being top heavy.
    2 wins in the tourney gives us 21 wins, 7 of our last 10
    and a late season win over a possible top 10 (UT or KSt)

    I know we aren't playing well enough to pull this off currently
    but I think that ressume gets us in.

    I know a large portion of ypu don't think that's possible but if we did
    I think we'd get in.

    You are right.. we could totally make the CBI if we play REALLY well the rest of the year and knock SOMEONE off.

    Re: Tourney hopes

    With the lack of depth, I highly doubt we win 2 Big 12 tourney games.

    Re: Tourney hopes

    Rather than look at matchups, let's look at us.

    We need to:

    * Rebound the ball better
    * Not have so many stupid TOs
    * Craig Brackins needs to start averaging 18+
    * Gilstrap needs to continuing doing what he is doing
    * Play better man to man defense (that means help on the weakside and rotate!!!)
    * Bring back the Diante Garrett from November/early December

    Add hitting some FT's to that list.

    We just need to bring back Chicago State and company and we would be doing just fine.

    ISU should join the MAC.

    Re: Tourney hopes

    Chances are pretty good that free throw shooting will only get a little better. Since we usually only send our bigs to the line, that makes it tough. Most teams have penetrating guards (no not pierre pierce) that get fouled going to the hoop and free throw shooting comes a lot easier.

    I think we've got a reasonable shot at winning 3 of the next 5, but there is not a lot of room for error.

    Re: Tourney hopes

    OU beating us by double digits will pretty much smash any more of these ideas. They have been playing pretty darn well lately.

    I'll wager a diet Dr. Pepper ISU does not win 3 of the next 5.
