Anyone know where the Cyclones stand with Audi Crooks from Bishop Garrigan. Only a sophmore but Register made it sounds like she wants to commit sooner then later to enjoy high school.

She is a project. Her size is what gives her interest. It appears she may have stalled out in growing as she has not grown since the last two years it appears. She knows how to use her "size" but doesn't really fight for the ball. If you front her, it basically shuts her down.

Agree 100% with you on this. Not taking anything away from her because she is a great ball player. Her height is something I think is over with, but she definitely has the potential to pick up the next set of skills to be a good player at the next level. One thing I think people are forgetting is she is playing 1A ball so she has been able to get away with her general influence down low...her skill set is no where near being captured yet and wherever she ends up at the coaches will be able to get it run with her.

She does the same shuffling of her feet that Garza does. Most refs don't look down when a player has a ball, but she does travel a lot actually. Getting a little longer jump shot would be beneficial and getting up and down the court would be areas to work first. The 1A ball is huge. Surprised she hasn't looked at a Dowling or larger school to move to in order to help her out.

I'm so glad someone else mentioned this on Garza. I was having this debate with a Hawk fan buddy. That dude travels on half his post moves. There was one yesterday where he spun baseline and took a legitimate 2 steps before he put the ball on the floor.

WOW! The Iowa girl's state tournament is off to a great start. In the second 5A quarter-final, Ankeny Centennial beat SE Polk at the buzzer, 47-45.

By the way, Jamie Styer servers as the color commentator of the game and she's as entertaining as in the CycloneWBB radio broadcasting.

That was one of the closest releases before the light came on I think I've ever seen

It sure was close. After a few tries I was able to catch a screen shot with the ball just out of her hands with the light just coming on with .1 showing on the broadcast clock.

The backboard light in this screen shot appears to be quite dim so it had just turned on.

Guess I never seen it because of the Score line but they were talking about the one girl stepping out.

Also seen that IC West knocked off Waterloo West so 6 takes down 3

From the sideline view I've seen the girl was clearly out of bounds. Like it was a horrible missed call. With that said, from the baseline view it looks like she is probably bumped out of bounds. If you follow Keith Murphy on Facebook there are people posting small clips/pics.

Had to hop over there and see what you meant...All I can say is wow that was a pretty clear missed call. Those things happen on all levels and is a part of the game. Have to wonder though why at least at the state level they don't have say a last 2 minute review option?

I hate that that play decided a state tournament game. It probably wouldn't be bad idea to have reviews in the final minutes like you suggest.

Here's the proof.

I got that the game's outcome can't be reversed. And the no-call of the out of bounds is not reviewable. But it's certainly an exciting finish. Maggie was from SE Polk so she must be heartbroken for the loss.
