    That one is debatable. I don’t think I’ll ever not cringe at their chants during the game.

    I hope they decide to come back!! That team could be really good!

    Is there any chance at all that Kristin Scott, Rae and Madison Wise choose to return next year?

    There was ZERO reason for Solomon Young to be in that game towards the end. He offered absolutely no purpose. Baylor went small and so should have Prohm. Javan should have been in.

    Does Anyone Else Just Not Really Watch the Games Anymore?

    I didn’t watch the game for the first time in 15+ years. I was playing golf in Arizona and honestly didn’t even think about the game once. This says everything you need to know about the program.

    Does Prohm actually teach Solo to play defense like this or is he just that bad of defender? Good lord lol

    Solo has given up 4 dunks to Boone already. Also, I would love to see ISU not switch and over help every possession. They constantly over help and instead of giving up a tough midrange shot or tough layup they give up a wide open 3. Leaving Cunningham wide open. Bold strategy.

    I agree with all of this. Javan is a better scorer but Walker is a better rebounder, ball handler and defender. They both need to cut down in their turnovers though. They can be solid pieces if we put some more talented players around them.

    I’m adding Walker and Javan to that list. Walker is a freshman guard that had 14 rebounds against KU.. that’s impressive. Javan, when he is playing well, can be a solid piece on a good team.

    Good Johnson is a Big 12 starter. Bad Johnson isn’t even a MVC level starter. Unfortunately it seems like he either looks like he has NBA potential or he looks like he’s never played basketball before. One of the weirdest players I can remember at ISU. If he could somehow always play like he did...

    Does anybody see a scenario in which ISU doesn’t make the NCAA tournament?

    Twister Sister Summary - Frogs go down

    This kind of surprises me to be honest. I would have thought Ashley or Carleton would have had that record. I’m not surprised to see Lexi do it though. She was a McDonald’s All-American for a reason. Impressive that a freshman could bounce back after a 0 point game with a program record. Bright...

    What do you do?

    He had a chance to change that but he landed Anderson, Leech, Grill, Jackson, Blackwell, Dubar and Jackson.
