    Don't let Ejim play much until December, to get him ready for Big 12 games.

    Good write up. I love that basketball is back. I thought SDW looked very solid. I have noticed a huge improvement on his shot too. More arc, better spin and. He's holding the follow through longer. It's no secret that SDW is a player I am high on. Going forward do you see SDW continuing to get 15+ minutes per game?

    I can deal with the "point of emphasis" as long as the officials make it a "point of emphasis" to hold Kansas and Okie State to the same standard as the rest of the league.

    100% chance OK State will be held to the same standard. 0% chance KU will be. In fact, OK State may get it worse than us if the JHawks are having a good year.

    Might be nit picky, but how can Percy go 3-5 from the field and only score 3 points?

    Chris totally edited it after I posted that. I call party foul.

    Even though it was a slow game, our conditioning looked good. Totally dug KJ's block on the attempted late game dunk attempt.

    That really is the test. It'll be great if uniformly enforced, but could be a great way to favor the 'name' teams as well.

    Great comparison Kane to Stinson, Chris. I know it's just one game, but that is the first thing I thought of as I was watching him.

    I found it disappointing that there were no dunks. Had the opportunity for some, Gibson could have thrown one down on a sick pick and roll pass from Morris, but layed it in nice and sweet

    My guess is it will be uniformly enforced until conference play begins, then it will be back to usual. Hand-checking was a point of emphasis a couple of years ago, and after being called at the beginning of the season, it mysteriously disappeared once conference play began.

    I like the Kane/Stinson comparison, but I was thinking Kane reminded me of a more talented Jake Anderson. Lots of heart there... good rebounder, tough as nails.

    Honestly I liked the officiating. IF (and that is a huge 'if') they keep calling it like that I think it is likely to really benefit us.

    Iowa State's default has never been handchecking. I still have my doubts we'll see this go into the league play though. The powers that be will ***** too much.

    Yes, can't wait to see how many game-deciding hand check fouls we see in the last sixty seconds of a tight game.

    Walters and Heft made the comparison during the broadcast too, no teardrop yet though...

    I wouldn't jump off the 3 point bandwagon just yet. If I'm remembering correctly, last years team was awful in the early games from behind the arc.
