    Thanks for sharing Twins but this this pic is extremely deceiving. I can’t read the clock but I’m guessing it is 30 min before the game. My wife is an Iowa grad and her uncle has season tix so we went last night. We arrived right before tip and I would estimate it was 2/3 full so around 9-10k.

    I’ve been going to games in Hilton for 3 decades and overall it was a fun environment. Did it measure up to Hilton for a top 20 opponent, no, but it was predominantly die hards due to the weather... very animated and engaged (not your normal Carver crowd).

    18 min before tip. My buddy that went said he thought it was 6-7k. He said it was a pretty good crowd and it helped Iowa get to the line 96 times

    I actually think you are right about this. Fran is forced to only play 8 guys.

    Are you really trying to say that shooting 30 free throws is basically the same as 5? Foul discrepancy means nothing, its how many times you get to the line, and do you make the first one when you get there to earn the second.

    27/30 to 4/5. Home cooking at its best.

    Not saying Iowa didn’t get a little home cooking, but Iowa usually lets the other team get the layup when they are beaten on defense and didn’t contend much last night. Plus Michigan committed a bunch of stupid penalties last night.

    Between how the football seasons turned out, bowl games, wrestling, and MBB, Twins is all...

    But Winthorpe does bounce back and win in the end. Chin up.

    The 2019-2020 sports year has been brutal for you so far. I can't imagine what you are going through right now.

    What's the "I'd call God" about?

    I must have missed something.

    The Hawkeye players would not even start for us.

    Besides, it isn't that hard to beat the Michiganders.

    Yep, just like football where ISU has better players and coaches, but for some reason have a worst team.

    They kicked our ass at our own place, but yea I’m sure no Hawkeye players could start over stellar starters like Jacobson or Nixon for us.
