    I think we will go with our starting lineup from the past few games. Switch everything on the perimeter, and double down when the ball gets entered into Garza. He hasn't seen many double teams in the post with JB etc on the perimeter. However, when we double with four small we are much quicker to the perimeter than the past few years.

    Iowa - 78
    ISU - 70

    Iowa has a big lead in the first half. ISU catches fire late but it’ll be too late.

    I think Iowa will come out with a little more intensity and get out to an early lead but ISU will weather the storm and take control in the second half. ISU 73 Iowa 65.

    I'm disappointed by all the Iowa predictions - sad and pathetic

    We won’t even play all that great but as the superior team Iowa State finds a way to get the win.

    Iowa State's defense has been really, really good, holding 7 or their 8 opponents under 69 points, while averaging 80 points per game offensively. I think that trend continues.

    Iowa State 79, Iowa 70.

    This ^^^^ has merit. The weird scheduling in their conference has put them behind the 8 ball in December. I don't think we get whooped...in fact, we might just win. This group plays together very well. Not much "me" ball going on. But the Hawks being in the position they are per their schedule IMO are going to come out with their hair on fire and going to make it a very difficult game.

    ISU wins in a closer-than-it-should-be fashion. The all-Iowa team will be pumped about playing the state's premier basketball program.

    I honestly don't see Iowa State doubling the post much. They haven't really doubled the post this year so I don't see them all of a sudden doing it this game.

    ISU wins because they're the more talented and better coached team.

    There is no reason to double the post. That’s just an invitation for Cook to do his thing from the weak side.

    We are talking about the basketball game tomorrow night, not the waistline of the Stanley and Purdy.

    I don't think ISU has ever had 30 turnovers but we'll see

    its reverse psych: I am going in thinking Iowa is going to win just because, and when ISU dominates I will be pleasantly surprised.

    MadFran gets his second T with 10 seconds left. MJ's last free throw puts us up 80-79 for the win.
    Dolph heard after the game--"Why can't we have composed coach like those guys do?". He's later suspended for the rest of the season.

    First hostile environment for our freshman may cause a slow start for us.

    Iowa really needs to win this game for the sake of their season after losing the first 2 Big Ten games, they will come out looking for blood.

    We may make it close by the end of the night, but I am afraid they will jump out to a big lead in the first half.

    Hopeful for a win, but I don't expect it to happen.
