    That game put the fizz in physical.

    I not sure Fran's willowy, position less, stringbeans would have fared that well.

    Just think for how much we love UNLV they could have Beard now and Texas Tech would be irrelevant

    Again I didnt watch but how is this possible when Lard had 10 FG's and only 4 offensive rebounds?

    Lard had 11 FG attempts in 20 minutes. He got two pretty weak moving screen calls against him that made him sit out a lot

    The fact you are claiming you didn't watch is hysterical.

    I asked why in the world Talley put up 15 shots when Lard was 10/11 from the field.

    A response said that most of Lard's points came on put backs. I asked how that was possible if he only had 4 offensive rebounds and 10 FG's.

    If Lard had 4 offensive rebounds I would say he had 8 points on put backs. Talley had one possession where he had like 3-4 shots missing put backs. Talley didn't have a great game but Texas Tech is probably the second best defense in the country behind Virginia and they went out of their way to take Jackson and Wigginton out of the game so Talley was forced to try to do too much IMO

    Lots of Cy talk in a Tyler Cook thread by the guys that come to CyFan because they say it has better Hawk coverage than their voice provides.

    I watched from the under 8 minute tv timeout till halftime. I thought ISU was competing very hard and were controlling the boards. But TT had some thunderous dunks and Wigginton had a really hard time playing point.

    I went to sleep thinking that ISU was going to keep it close in the second half because they were outhustling TT from what I saw. Was surprised the final score was as bad as it was.

    The wheels fell off with about 6 minutes left. Jakolby Long came out and puked in a bucket on the bench so he went to the locker room and Lard was fouled out so we were down to 6 guys

    ISU has no depth right now. Add into it that 5 players had 2 fouls in the first half (especially Lard with 2 at the 16:30 mark) and it was a long shot.

    I thought 2nd half the lineup of Lard, Young, Talley, DJ and Wigginton really gave TT trouble.

    Do you feel like Wigginton has hit a freshman wall of sorts. He seems to be struggling of late. I only watched those eight minutes, but he was terrible in that time. Maybe too small a sample size I know, but it seems like he has regressed some from his early season form.

    No. Not having Babb really hurts him because he's better off the ball but he did just put up 22 against an elite defense a week ago and had 14 and 8 last game vs Baylor

    The 14/8 game he got on 28% shooting? I wouldn't call that a good game. The WVU game he did play well in.

    He didn't shoot well against Baylor but I thought he did a good job running the offense. After hanging 30 on them the first go around they made it a point to try to take him away

    I don't. It probably has more to do with getting acclimated to the PG position in the Big 12 conference. Having NWB for the first half of the conference season really helped Wigginton out.

    He'll continue to improve at the PG spot.

    Don't most feel that he probably won't ever really play PG at ISU? Weiler Babb will be there next year and most ISU fans feel that Wigginton will go pro after next year right?
