    I don’t think we’ll win, just putting that out there. There are two things I want to see happen though:

    Consistent, strong effort. It seemed like the last few games when we weren’t hitting shots we couldn’t get back into the game emotionally. I want the guys to shake off the bad times and fight through it.

    Not starting off slow. We’ve gotten in some big holes at the start of the half. I’m looking for them to go to Wesley or something to get some points on the board early. He provided that a lot earlier in the season and we seem to have gone away from that.

    More than anything though, play hard cyclones and Go State.

    I'm looking for the Cyclones that came back against the tigers and the team that almost upset Kansas. Most of all I am looking for a W!

    I both Bryce and ChuckD.

    Here's my three:
    1) Effort. We really didn't give the effort I expected in the last two games.

    2) Get to the line and make free throws.

    3) Return to rebounding prowress. We've lost some of the domination of the boards we had earlier in the year. Some of it has to do with better competition, but I think it also has to do with #1, conisistant effort.

    Yeah, unfortunately at this point, another "moral victory" isn't really going to do much more for us, it'll just be really frustrating. So I hope for the team that they can come out consistent and strong, and pull out a good one. Right now, that's what the team really needs to improve.

    I am looking for a return to an offense that consistently runs sharp, recognizable plays. I feel like the kids have continued to give good effort in an unorganized manner. We need the defense to do the same with good man to man principles. Eventually they will get it, and it will stick.

    I'm looking for the team that played KSU and Colorado to disappear and never return.

    The game will be physical. Need Brock, Dodie, Ross, Corey to step up their roughness factor.

    Yeah... I see us returning to a little bit of the guards shooting threes with Rahshon and Wes crashing the boards for the put back. When Jiri's in... we'll try to work it to him down low.

    After watching OSU the past couple of weeks, they aren't as great as I thought they were. They have three really good players that score a ton of points. If we can shut down one of them and rebound well and make the pace our own, I can see us pulling off a huge upset.

    Not expecting to win at all, but I give us a better chance than I once did, even though we haven't played well lately.

    I want Taylor to string together a full 40 minutes and show that he is capable of carrying this team for the next season and a half. I want Clark to score some points that are not on a rebound dunk. Most of all I want to see a hungry team that want to play with a lead. Comebacks seem to our hallmark and that needs to change.

    Games at GIA have been an absolute disaster for as long as I can remember. If this game ends with OSU winning by less than a double digit margin, I still won't be happy, but I will be surprised.

    Clones will play one of their better games of the season, McDermott has had a week to prepare for this game. In the end, I think OSU will be too much and we will lose 68-64.

    I think we'll see a surprising effort that will excede the efforts versus Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas, and pull the upset on the road.

    Although I think we'll play better, OSU at GIA is too much for this young team unless all the stars magically align.

    Good Effort but...

    I think a #13 OSU by 12 at their place, during a game where they commemorate the "lost team" is as good as you can hope for.

    That the men kept them to 62 appears to be a good sign.

    Unfortunately, I don't think AFN will carry a rebroadcast of the game, so I won't see/hear it.
