    Good game, Cyclones.

    I wasn't able to watch the game but I did listen to it on the radio. Brackins is the real deal and you have him for another year. I thought I also heard that you have a couple of players out with injuries and that could have made a very big difference today. Honestly this game could have gone either way. Good luck the rest of the season.

    Re: Good game, Cyclones.

    Brackins won't be back next year, he can/should go to the NBA in my honest opinion.

    We have a couple injuries and player defections that certainly have set us back. I think if we had the team that we started with on Day One, we win this game for sure. That's not the case however, and it results in yet another loss.

    I'm getting pretty sick of all this losing. Things need to change...SOON.

    KSU is nasty. Love your guards. Good luck this year.

    He did score a lot today, but I have to disagree that he was the difference in the game. I think the difference between us winning and losing was our 3 point shooting. We were 5 of 23 from the three point line going 22%. If we would have shot our season average we would have won this game assuming everything else went the way it did.

    4 of them were late in the game. we are 1-15 at one point. We make a couple more here and there and it changes the complexion of the game. I thought that was the difference. Lucca would have helped today. It would have been hard to play less defense on Clemente and besides that he was on fire. He hit a couple tough shots.

Lucca would have helped today, if he was able to get open from the speedy KSU guards. He would also have been schooled time and time again trying to guard Pullen or Clemente. It would have been hard to play less defense on Clemente and besides that he was on fire. He hit a couple tough shots.

    Good point but he wouldn't have done worse on Clemente today. He kicked anyones *** that was guarding him. They were giving us outside shots. No one hit them. We need a shooter on the floor.

    Re: Good game, Cyclones.

    I've been very disappointed with the perimiter defense, but I thought we had a hand in clemente's face a lot today. He was real quick and got some open shots too, but I really thought we worked harder to get a hand in his face then we have against others. He was on fire and no if ands or buts, he and the K-state guards are just flat out faster than ours.

    I thought that the clones played a real tough game.

    Re: Good game, Cyclones.

    I have watched Craig Brackins keep working and giving good effort and representing ISU well a a player and a person. Some players in his position of deciding to come back and then being around a melt down situation would have become more interested in personal stats. Brackins is still fighting and team oriented-good for him. Our 4 guards would not start on any other Big 12 team and that is our problem. It was a good effort against a team that plays hard but our 3 pt. shooting is horrendous. I give Scott C a little break in that his mono situation can not help his stamina which affects his shot. Colvin is getting more PT as is Buckley-should have happened earlier in the season and we might be in a better position today if they had more combat minutes under theri belt. A good effort but maybe 2 more wins this season against Co. & Neb.

    Thank you for the positive support, especially coming from a KSU fan, it means a bunch. Clemente is a truly impressive guard, up there with Sherron Collins from KU for best in the Big XII. Maybe we'll pull the upset down in the Octogon of Doom All I know is I will be down there for that game. And yes, with the year Craig is having, he will be coming back.

    Lets not get carried away. He is very good but there are lot of good guards out there.
