    Good News!! Thanks for letting us know the Sisters are on tv. I enjoy my Sundays listening to Rich and Molly call the games but today I can watch too. Wish Anna was playing, Stucky says here Go Cyclones - 3-pointers key for Cyclones that Anna has a beautiful outside shot.

    MN will be a tough match up without Prins. Stopping Ellis-Milan will be key. Let's hope our defense plays as well as last year.

    The other freshman are going to have to step it up on the defensive end. Bummer that Prins is out again after having the stress fracture earlier. This has got to be a setback for getting her into game shape. She must have gotten pretty sick to miss multiple weeks like this.

    :sad:

    I wonder if Prins illness will help totally heal up her stress fracture getting it some good rest.. Hope to see her back soon! She adds so much to this team having a 6-7 center wil all the things she can do!

    Anyone know how good Minnesota is expected to be this year? I know they are 7-3 but that's not always an indicator this early in the season. I'm guessing this is our toughest matchup of the early season since Drake?

    Sorry if I sound uneducated.. I love ISU women's basketball but as a whole WBB is harder to follow on a national scale.

    This early, RPI rankings arn't so acurate either...but Minny is 41st with a downward trend, and we are 100th with an upward trend...

    Minnesota has not looked good this year. Even with four returning starters, they have had trouble scoring points. Of course, that one starter they lost, Emily Fox, is a big loss.
    This is a very winnable game.

    Nice to see it's on TV, since the bus didn't stop in Clear Lake and pick me up...



    :jimlad:

    Anyways, I looked at FSN earlier in the week, and didn't even think about B10 TV. That is good news.

    6 minutes to tip off. Crowd still filing in. Good things ISU fans are here or the barn would be rather empty. Darn close to as many ISU fans here as Minny has.

    I think we are going to have trouble with their inside game. Their girls look bigger in most spots. Then again we are playing 4 guards.

    MN is just chucking crap up at the end of the shot clock and it's falling. That won't last.

    I notice the player from Ames who committed to Minn is sitting behind the Minn bench. Sorry I don't remember her name.

    Our girls rebound like our boys. I know they're missing Prins, but come on.
