    Awesome news for Tyrese. Congratulations!!!

    Credit to him for his work and development. To think this time last year some were assuming he'd be a redshirt freshman, ended up starting all but one game on 6 seed and now makes the U19 USA team.

    There has been a YouTube U19 feed of all the games in the past. I think the ESPNU has broadcast select games before too.
    I assume CF and CyclonesMBB will notify us of the broadcast possibilities with TH on the team.

    Whoa, whoa. Step it back here. No reason to go off the deep end.

    Bruce was made to be made fun of.

    He is a great coach but dang it, he can be down right goofy and annoying.

    This. You are allowed to like the guy but also think he's crazy. Hmmm, that's actually a decent summary of my marriage.

    Yeah he does all of those things and smiles when he's done.

    I'm not the least bit surprised he made it.

    I'd only be surprised if he leaves Iowa State without constantly having a huge positive impact on the program, university, Ames, etc.

    I actually don't mind him other than the whole standing on the court thing and it probably helped that he had experience coaching against TH to know his value.

    But he's giffable as F.

    Other mentions are NC-Central's coach, LeVelle Moton, is on the staff. Seemed like a good dude from the 2014 1st round game.

    Let's just hope TH doesn't get too used to having a coach on the sideline telling him every bloody move he wants him to make all of the time.

    Moton is a really coach, surprised he hasn't jumped up to a bigger league. IIRC he is a NCC alum though, maybe that's a factor.

    I think Tyrese is a lottery pick if he gets his handle down and starts to fill up the basket.

    ESPN released their updated 2020 mock draft and Tyrese was 25th.

    That Lithuania game could be tough. I've heard they have a kid named Arvydis Sabonis that is a 7 footer and passes like a PG.

    Oh, didn't know that.

    I'd still think he'd know what he's got with TH.
