    I said this about our ladies today...but I firmly believe this applies across the board - especially in today's environment...with the coaches we have...


    You can knock us down. You can look like you've beaten us. You can try to embarrass us too.

    But when the chips are down...when our character is tested...


    We.
    Will.
    Not.
    Quit.

    Win, lose or draw - you're going to get our best shot until there is no more time left.

    The men were at the game too, you have to believe McDermott will be using this to motivate us tomorrow! Can this acctually give the men some momentum?

    Nice to see our men cheering them on, and this has to fuel their fire, no doubt about it.

    I'd give my left eye to see the men put on a performance like this. You can't say enough good things about the job Bill has done this year with losing two key players.

    My coworkers (Hawk fans mind you) are giving me crap about being so excited for women's bball but they just have no idea how amazing ISU bball is and how much the fans appreciate the heart of these kids. What a great day.

    Very young team is getting some great playing experience - should lock up a berth in NCAAs. The last ten minutes were like a war.

    It was great to see the men there, pretty sure I saw the whole team at the end.

    If it doesn't, then our guys are not who I thought they were.

    This win should motivate any Cyclone team.

    Show that overtime to the guys right before the game Thursday night. Cael, get a copy and show it to your guys before they take the mat at Nationals.

    Gene - pull it out before our season starts this fall...yeah - our FB team can learn from a women's basketball team.

    That attitude, heart, dedication and will-power to never die - to not go quietly into the night. But instead to fight, claw, kick and scream our want to the end...

    Is what should exemplify Iowa State University athletics. Gene's said it himself. We may get beat, but that team across the field is going to know we played more physical and harder than they did.

    When you did that, it eventually pays off.

    That ending is what is great about basketball in general and all that is good in sports!

    Lacey makes up for Jamaal's Hampton as she completely takes over the game at the end.

    Honestly, the job that Bill has done this year is beyond amazing.

    What is it about the Twister Sister and KC?!?!

    This is how the Know Nothings of Houston Rockets have won 20 straight: guts, determination, try for every loose ball. Heart can beat talent.
