    Jeeebus. It wasn’t all of his 26 but like I said... watch the replay. How many yams did he have on put backs; 4-5?

    How many of his points weren't exactly that?

    Either a putback from bad ISU rebounding or bullrushing to the rim.

    That won't happen every night. He won't have a 3 guarding him.

    It would've been nice if ISU had something more than a true freshman guard to put on him, but we didn't. He did what he should have done to a player not ready to play defense against a PF.

    you guys definitely missed Young tonight....was surprised Jacobson and Lard weren't on the floor more together....was a lot to expect THT to guard Cook in the post.

    He’d just be sooo much easier to cheer for if he was an Iowa kid...

    Cook is an above average dunker and below average all around player.

    There's a lot of fessin' up some of the poster experts need to own.
    Cook schooled THT - but really who did we have to guard him, whithout fouling out?. And Cook handed us a double-double 26-11 and played the most mins of any Hok.

    At times we did a good job denying passes in the lane to Cook, and we got turnovers. What pizzed me off was his ability to start his move from about the FT line and finish. How in the heck do we not stop that.
    We threw some double-teams at him when he was backing down THT, but he found other ways to get to the rim.
    Can't believe they scored 98 on us !?$##?

    Playing small had worked so well that they haven't even really been working on adding another big yet

    He had a nice game. His inability to shoot will limit him going forward, but he is athletic and when he wants to play he can be a force. We didn't have an answer for him.

    I didn't quite understand the rationale of THT on Cook either. I know going small had been our bread and butter, but it was apparent about 5 minutes in that Cook was going to give us fits if we didn't put a big on him. I will say offensively Talen had a mismatch about every time down. He got whatever shot he wanted. Unfortunately they weren't falling.

    THT's defense on him wasn't really the problem, Cook was a turnover machine last night. Between his bad passing and getting beat on entry passes he gave up at least 6-7 turnovers.

    The problem was leaving him to contest shots and rebound instead of boxing him out. The end of the first half was a perfect example, with Conditt going to contest a shot he had no business chasing while leaving Cook standing by himself under the hoop.
