Did Kenpom value ISU as top 16? Iowa lost because they ran out of steam and did not hit shots, much like the team that Won the big 12 tournament a few years ago from Ames.

ISU road a hot hand and caught breaks is all I am saying. Much like St Peters did.

Ran out of steam?

Wasn't that called 'trajectory'?

What hot hand did ISU ride? They were terrible on offense in the tourney but about on par defensively. The B1G champ Badgers couldn't handle seeing a defense for the first time in three months.

Iowa wasn't that good just like ISU in 2019 wasn't consistently that good, or how 2015 ISU struggled if the opponent got into them.

TJ is a much better recruiter than Fran in all facets. I wish they’d go head-to-head more in recruiting, but I don’t see it happening.

Seems TJ wants guys that are actually tough and don't just flex like it.

A favorite aspect of him (there's flaws fwiw) is the buy in for the players to just keep the head up without showing any response to other players, refs etc.

Iowa lost because their guards can't handle being defended tightly.

Fran does fine finding guys, but I believe his system turns some away. They want the ball in their hand for 30 minutes. Fran usually plays his guys around 20-25 depending on their production. (Luka and Keegan for example). It is one of the reasons Toussaint left for WV. He wanted to play more than 20 minutes a game. ISU had openings this year and had a good year with some nice breaks in the NCAA tournament (LSU scandal, Wisconsin losing their PG) and took nice advantage of it. TJ looks the part, but will be interesting to see how this team gels for him. Is Limpsy going to be as good as Hunter? Missing on Green stinks but will King be the man? The transfer big will be a really nice addition. You got him because there is an opening there for PT btw. That is always going to be the selling point.

I hope Harding is the real deal for Iowa as I think Freeman is going to be really good. Harding is small, but they have Bowen, Dix, Perkins, Ulis that can handle it for a few years.

Wow, tell me you are stupid without telling me you are stupid

The Hawkeye nation basketball forum on 2025 is hilarious seeing them pumped about another son of Fran. One said “well it looks like we’ll be loaded without recruiting outside of Iowa city” lololol

Isn’t little Weezer around that age also? Maybe Frank has gotten that mannequin knocked up to keep the Garza legacy going

If we don’t think Pryce is going to Iowa, I’d hope we give him a shot. Not sure he matches the dawg defense style we put out there, but he’s everything we don’t have offensively as a shooter

We aren’t recruiting him.

Haven't offered and probably won't, but I am sure he was 'being recruited' by Iowa State at some point
what does recruiting mean? Not being a smart ass.
doesn’t matter, in this case, but does “recruiting” start with the first phone call? Letter? Depending on how it’s defined, we may recruit hundreds of players.
