    This was from phog.net

    "With the win and celebration behind them, attention will turn to a huge matchup at Iowa State, Monday night at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, a building where Kansas fell a year ago.
    The Cyclones will be hoping to dent Kansas’ conference title chase and exact some revenge of their own after a Ben McLemore miraculous three saved the Jayhawks from certain defeat in January, before they eventually prevailed in overtime.
    “We were fortunate we got a win the first time,â€￾ Self said. “I really think that we have a great opportunity going there to beat "

    I really like Self as a coach. Can anyone find an interview with him about Monday's game?

    Kansas head coach Bill Self
    On the opportunity of Monday's game against Iowa State:

    "We haven't really played that well on the road since the Ohio State game.
    We've won some games but it hasn't been because we played really well.
    We just hung in there and figured out a way to win like we did on Wednesday night against Oklahoma State. We are going to have to go play a (solid) game in Ames because they have guys that can score.
    We are going to have to make shots and be efficient.
    When we execute, we're pretty good at doing that, but we haven't done that consistently on the road in places that are loud where our communication isn't great.
    This needs to be a special game that we play on Monday night."


    On preparing for Iowa State:

    "They're good and they score easier than anyone in our league.
    I've said that all year long, and it's true.
    We have to do a great job individually, defensively and our ball screening has to be great.
    We were fortunate we got a win the first time.
    I really think that we have a great opportunity going there to beat a dangerous team.
    We are going to have to play our best game away from home."

    Looks like if we beat KU and OSU, we will help the Purple Kitties.

    What do you think Self may do differently. He was caught a little off guard when GN started to draw their big man out side away from the basket. What will CFH do differently, who will Babb Guard. This is the schedule remaining down the stretch:

    KANSAS
    @ Ia State
    W. Virg
    Texas Tech
    @ Baylor

    K-STATE
    Texas Tech
    @ Baylor
    TCU
    @ Okie St

    OKIE ST
    @ TCU
    Texas
    @ Ia State
    K-State

    OKLA
    @ Texas
    Ia ST
    W. Virg
    @TCU

    IA STATE
    KansS @ oKLA
    oKIE st
    @ W. Virg

    The Remaining schedule further shows how important this game and defending home court is down the stretch.

    My 15 year old son has row 2 arena seats behind the scorers table thanks to his friend! Maybe I could pay him to stay home if I offered him $20 and I go in his place.
