    Good info, I'd love to see a practice but, we won't get into town until Sunday. If you find out about Monday practice, please let us know.

    Re: Saturday NCAA open practices at Hilton

    Are there any rules about 10,000+ cyclone fans showing up and really disrupting the other teams practices?

    I assume you can come in the main entrances, like south and north, but I will find out.
    BTW, Saturday is the only day there are open practices.

    When they were at WF 2 years ago - You just walk in the door and sit where ever

    It would be cool to get the intimidation factor started early.

    I know this is somewhat in jest, but I'll bet that they would be quick to eject anyone who is interfering with a practice. The NCAA would also take it as a black eye to the school when considered for hosting future tournament games.

    Just an FYI - these open practices are really just to get used to Hilton and are kinda perfunctory. All teams have other practices, either in private in Hilton or in gyms elsewhere in central Iowa, to go over their gameplans vs. their opponents.

    yeah at WF 2 years ago it was not a "practice" It was a shoot around. No game planning just guards at one end shooting threes and posts at the other working on post moves.

    This. Quite often they won't actually 'practice', they'll just shoot around.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    there were a couple hundred people there I would say. I was actually surprised to see as many there as I did. ISU used the full time allotment.
