    Just curious what everybody's take is on this game.
    I've got a similar feel about this game like the one at Allen Fieldhouse. We are due for a win in Morgantown.

    Iowa State 86
    West Virginia 83

    Too much hackin by the home team and we run in to foul trouble. Hope I'm wrong.

    I predict I'm going to be there, in row L of the lower bowl!!!

    If I had to guess, I'd say ISU comes up about 4 points short but I think we could win it. Of all teams, shouldn't ISU be able to handle their press (their rebounders, less so).

    Agree. The one game losing streak, and losing 2 of the last 4, is too much!

    I predict I will stay relaxed during the game since ISU is headed to the NCAA tourney, which was my general hope.

    Just a prediction...

    I think we are more than capable of beating West Virginia, but some things have to fall together for us to win, Huggy will try to intimidate us with the refs, and hacks. We need to keep our composure. We need to hit plenty of shots. We need to play some of the best defense of the year. We need to stop the penetration. I think it is going to be hard to put all that together, so I would have us getting beat by about 3 in a fairly high scoring game.

    It is to much to ask ISU to beat WVU on the road on their senior night, it is a very hard place to play. Burton and Naz are going to turnover the ball multiple times. Vegas has ISU as an 8 point underdog, which I think is right.
    On to the big 12 tournament....

    So are you not going to watch? The only time I stay relaxed when watching them is when we are up big and the game is about over.

    If they do not make any banked 3's, we make all of our layups, and we push when we get the advantage then we will win 80-70.

    Ha, I can't even relax when I'm not able to due to games on ESPNU, etc.

    The Tech game was a lot of 'WTF is going on?!' and pacing.

    I'm going to do my best to be lassai-faire about it since it's not all that crucial but will likely fail and have two beers during the last two minutes (if it's close) like usual.

    Maybe 3 because it's WV with the grabbing and the pushing.

    I really don't see ISU winning this one. WVU just has too many athletic guys that are allowed to play more physical than they should, thanks to Huggins constantly working the officials.

    We get a payback. Clones win.

    ISU = 83
    WVU = 78

    It'll be all about weathering the storm. If we can keep our composure when WVU goes on their runs and keep grinding till the end we'll be in a position to win. They have built big leads before and lost because the other teams kept working and didn't wilt against their pressure.

    It's also thanks to WV fouling so much that the refs can't figure out when to call it.

    Baylor does the same thing with their offensive rebounding.

    Something funny I noticed as I went to record the game, most college basketball games get a 2 hour time slot on ESPN. It seems they finally learned that that's simply impossible for West Virginia to do, and gave our game a 2 1/2 hour time slot. Too bad they never figured that out when our game was following a WVU game.
