    First off, I just wanted to say Tyrus McGee will hold a special place in this Cyclone fan's heart long after he plays his last game for Iowa State sometime in the next three or four weeks.

    We've seen him sacrifice minutes for the good of the team, drain crazy rainbow threes that might have gotten him benched had he missed them, and become the go-to guy when nobody else seemed to want to take on that burden.

    With all that said, I thought McGee played one of his best games tonight. He scored 14 points in only 21 minutes and needed just five shots to get it. When ISU couldn't buy a three during that one long Oklahoma State run, McGee went to the rack and got to the line, which is something ISU hasn't done enough of this season when the threes stopped falling.

    I just thought it was cool to see what I consider the nation's best shooter impact a game without shooting the ball much. He is what's great about ISU and about Hilton Magic. Tonight it hit me how much I'm going to miss him when he's gone.

    Loved it tonight when he hit his 3 late, the announcer said "Chalk it up" or something along those lines before he had even shot the ball. People in our conference know what kind of shooter he is, hopefully the next few weeks he'll get to show the rest of the country.

    All I ever say about McGee is that "He doesn't miss". He simply doesn't miss when he has a shot.

    As long as you're right about SDW, nobody will care if it was a joke or not.

    His three to put us up 10 with 3 minutes had me running around my place freaking out. Just watched highlights and gave me goosebumps.

    He's ended up being my favorite Cyclone MBB player since Rahshon Clark. Every time he's on the floor he just seems to give 110%, even if he ends up missing that 3 pointer or ends up failing to save a ball going out of bounds.. he's always there. The newcomers next season will have some big shoes to filll.

    Loved when the announcer said something along the lines of "write it up" right as Mcgee was releasing his last three.

    They just showed a glimpse of senior stuff. Was that Carol Hoiberg with Tyrus?
