    Predictions: Wisc-Green Bay vs. Iowa State

    Thoughts?

    I don't see how we don't win this game by 20 points. GB capitalized on a horribly sloppy game against Virginia and attempted like 40 free throws, and hit most of them. I don't think they'll even attempt half of that against us. The ISU women have them outmatched physically (athleticism AND good looks, despite what others have commented on about GB ).

    I'm going with:

    ISU 72
    GB 52

    what has me worried is GB plays a similar offense to KState, which gives us trouble. The key for ISU will be our post defense. Will they be quick enough to keep up with GB's motion offense. I look for ISU to make a statement in the post early, and I think our guard size on defense will be problematic for GB. I also don't think ISU will play into GBs frenetic style.

    Drop a few threes early and all will be well.

    With Aus it won't be as problematic as otherwise, but, WGB can press and trap and will try to disrupt our offensive tempo. Prins will need to get the ball up, plan ahead, shot quickly or they'll steal the ball if she holds it waist high, thinking. It certainly won't be easy - they do have some quality wins. Sunday, for some reason, we got behind them - tonight will be different. I got to visit with some of their fans at the motel - seem like nice people - they didn't expect to beat UVA.

    There were a lot of Green Bay fans at the game on Sunday. I hope this doesn't throw our usual home court advantage off. I'm a little nervous but I think the Sisters pull out a close one. Time to Fan-Up!!! Buy a ticket, show-up, and cheer loud!!!

    im happy they brought fans.. it adds to the atmosphere

    I think the game is close at the break but Iowa state pulls away at the end
    77-59


    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."

    I don't think GB made a field goal in the last 15 minutes of the game. The only points they scored were off FT's. Virginia played horrible and still almost won. I say we win by 20+ points.

    75-51

    I think it was the last 12 minutes and change.

    That is still amazing. I'm sure Bill will point out that if you foul this team, you will lose.

    ISU wins big, y 20+ points, ESPN analysts will point out that ISU got lucky as GB overachieved, much like Ball St. last year. Then we lose big to UCONN, and again ISU will get no respect.

    If the analysts have to talk about us it's a good thing. If we can be UConn's next opponent, lots of good press. No downside, I think. One at a time.

    As long as the Twister Sisters win by 11 I will be happy.

    I honestly think we win by 25+.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I think so also and the Hilton crowd will look great on TV! 8K-9K for a WBB game isn't too bad!
