After our close win over MVSU, I was one of the people who predicted we would only win 3 conference games, if we were lucky. :no: I was proven wrong by a team of players who came together, got 3rd in the Big 12 with 12 wins, beat the defending national champs in the NCAA tourney, and eventually lost to the overall #1 seed. If we had played any team in the nation not named Kentucky, we'd be going to the Sweet 16. Our players never quit. I can't wait until next season! With Royce or not, our future is brighter than ever. I am very confident that Fred will bring a Big 12 championship to Ames very soon, possibly next year if Royce returns.
