True. Just a bad matchup for the Cyclones last night.
I thought THT settled for outside shots too often...he has to go to the hoop more often.
Yeah but our defense was just so poor on rotations and then rebounding too. We actually did a good job fronting the post. Honestly neither team could guard each other Iowa just made shots and played harder
Gotta wonder if having to be so physical on the defensive end affected his offensive game.
Ideally yes, but he was in some foul trouble and the distinction between a block and a charge last night was a bit tenuous We've seen him make those shots before and but/for maybe a few shots I thought they were all open and shots I'm fine with him taking.
That's a fair assessment.
Should go to the NBA after this year..
If we could get Lard to resemble Cook, we’d be in great shape
He looked like a man playing with boys much of the time. But that was largely because we weren't boxing him out. He took advantage of his size and strength around the basket. It might have been a bit different if Young was in there, but Cook was "on" last night.
May not go that far but I certainly over estimated how much Solomon would be missed for this game. I think it was a blessing in disguise for Iowa that they made a bunch of turnovers trying to feed cook early... it probably took us longer to adjust when we needed to because of that.
ISU was really missing Solomon to bully Cook around much like 2017.
George Conditt gave it a good try at times but obviously doesn’t have the physicality yet.
This play gave me shades of Jameel. Overall he was obviously a very good defensive player but selling out for blocks to leave easy weak side putbacks used to frustrate the hell out of me.
Anyone who said Tyler Cook "sucks" at basketball, doesn't know what they are talking about. But what is the point of this thread? Is OP wanting people to admit that he is an NBA talent? Because he has big parts of his game to improve if he wants to reach that.
I've always been a Cook fan, wished he would've come to ISU, but what're we trying to do here?
Of all the ass hats that play on that team, I like Cook the most. He was hustling, played well and wasn't a ****...unlike the Spawn of Fran and his minions.
I wasn't sure I could hate a team and university more than I did before last night's game...but I now do. They are the absolute worst fans and players in the country. Also, F KU.
Excellent, realistic take and I completely agree; much improved substantive over the "it's their superbowl".
IIRC, Young owned the paint in the game last year. Cook was invisible (as he does tend to disappear at time). 2 pts 8 rebs. Young would have been a tremendous help last night
