    I was unable to attend last night due to a work event, so I gave my tickets to a couple of young fans who were incredibly excited to go. I watched most of the game on my phone, but that didn't really tell me me much about our crowd. How was the atmosphere? I heard they had some former players in the crowd too, anyone know which ones?

    This could be hyperbole, but a game like that against a former rival (albeit not a very good one) feels like one this young team can very much build on, similar to the win vs Michigan at the start of the Niang era. Obviously not on that scale, but it has me excited for the future of this team again.

    Honestly for Hilton it was pretty tame, but I never really felt they were going to threaten in the 2nd half...they bad

    Getting to and in to the parking areas was a nightmare. Idiots directing traffic. Game atmosphere good, Misery never challenged so fans sat on hands a bit. Many early leavers with 4 minutes to go.

    I thought it was a good turnout for a 6pm game on a Friday night.

    There was a lot of hustle by our guys last night and we tipped a ball out of bounds thru the baseline and the crowd stood up and cheered. That was the best part of the game. Everyone seeing how much effort was being put into forcing turnovers.

    Hilton would be SO much better if ISU would have just gotten down by a bunch and had to go bonkers to win instead of dominating the whole 2nd half.

    Heck there was a good amount of people that left at the under 8:00 timeout when we were up 20.

    That doesn’t bug me as much as a tight game, the under 4 timeout happens, and Flag Guy is trying to run around and not hit them all, just so they can stand on the inner concourse.
    If you’re going to get out of your seat to leave; leave, make traffic better. But standing on that concourse hardly accomplishes anything.

    There's a group of 4-6 older folks near me that leave at the under 8 timeout EVERY GAME, regardless of score, opponent, or anything. I get it if you just hate traffic or whatever. But if it's a big opponent, and it's a close game, I mean c'mon! Why are you even there?

    20 is usually our cut point when we're driving home after. But since we stayed for the FB game on Saturday, there was no cut point Fri night:) There was no cut point on #s of beers either, which was a slight mistake come Sat morning.

    I, along with numerous cars ahead of and behind me, cut across the grass from University into the lots. The University entrance to D3 had its gate closed for whatever reason so we all used the grass! Attendant in the lot said to park in any lot we wanted to!

    I think basketball games are short as it is. I can’t understand paying big bucks to be there an hour and a half, then walk out wondering what happened the rest of the game.

    I dream about Flag Guy just creaming folks who are leaving early!
