    The U16 team played its first game yesterday, beating the Dominican Republic 128-17 (not a typo). Stokes had 9 points on 4-6 shooting (1-3 from the line). DR was 6-49 from the field.

    Sorry that I'm not up on my ISU women's recruiting, but is she a Cyclone yet?

    No, and although I have no inside info, I wouldn't count on her going to ISU. Dad a hawk + national attention = a whole lot of competition.

    I am 99% sure she is headed east...and not eastern Iowa. Just my 2 cents

    that would be too bad, risky choice if you ask me, without Coleman and Toliver, not to mention not having Jeff Waltz on the bench, Freeze has a great deal to prove now. Her team's defense is as leaky as a sieve, and without two of the best play makers in the history of basketball, I think Maryland might struggle to ever reach the heights it did previously. Also, she gets a lot of great recruits, but then there are "rumblings" about who gets to play.

    The games keep getting closer. USA 93, Argentina 33.

    After sitting out yesterday due to illness, she played 11 minutes today, getting 10 points (3-6 fg, 4-6 ft), 5 rebounds (2 off), 2 assists (1 to), 2 steals, and 2 blocks. She did pick up 3 fouls.

    This concludes the prelim round-robin round. USA plays in the semis tomorrow. Looks like they'll probably play Brazil in the semis, and a win there sets up a finals matchup Friday with Canada or a rematch with Argentina.

    Even closer yet: USA 105, Brazil 54 in the semifinals. Stokes only had 1 point and 3 rebounds in 12 minutes. The final against Canada is tonight at 8pm central.

    Note: By making it to the finals of the FIBA Americas, the team qualified for next year's U17 world championships.

    USA beats Canada in the championship 103-52. Stokes had 3 points and 3 rebounds in about 10 minutes of action.

    Why is this on the Iowa State women's basketball forum? I love women's basketball as much as anyone on here, but she is not coming to Iowa State.

    Iowa State is recruiting her, and I don't recall her saying that she wasn't considering us.

    Too bad if she's not considering ISU seriously. But, don't we have one of the best centers in the country coming in as a freshman this year? The girl from Colorado? I guess I don't know how good she will be but I know the CU coach caught some serious flack for letting her get away.

    You can never have too many post players (see ISU 07-08 season). We lost five post players from last season (and will lose one more after this season) and we only have 3 post players coming in, so post recruiting still needs to be a priority.

    We had a double digit Mike Marry page. Don't post if it's such a waste of time.

    You are one to talk about wasting time with posts.
