    23 points while taking 10 more shots than anyone els, I’m not saying he shouldn’t be driving but you can count on him driving weather there is anything there or not. His driving was really bad during the Baylor game also

    It may not be automatic points, but it's the closest thing we have to it. It needs to be there. He's a producer, simple as that.

    He's also only a sophomore. That kid has potential.

    Underrated moment of the game was when Tyrese knocked the ball out of bounds off of an Auburn player, the refs called it off of Tyrese, and he just took the ball and waited for them to review it lmao

    I think the challenge might end up about 5-5

    I love me some Bolton. He may be a shot hog at times and dribbles into 5 guys too much but he is a scorer. I would like to see Tyrese try to force his shot more driving. Funny thing is that 90% time it is not a forced shot. He just doesn't shoot when driving. Weird.

    I hear ya. I am not talking this game only. All season I look up and Grill and Jackson are in and not making shots. Griffin and Lewis are on the bench. I see Griffin has more arc on his shots since the beginning of the year and is making some shots. He is also rebounding.

    I disagree with the too late. After Baylor, the schedule sets up for an opportunity for a run. Get hot and there's still a chance for a 10-8 record or so. That would be good enough to be at least discussed for a bubble spot.

    Still shot the ball terrible from the 3 point line again today. Well, terrible by most teams standards, 26%, with 3 guys (Grill, Jacobson, Lewis) going 0 for 6.

    Surprised that Jackson did not even play, or is he hurt?

    I realize everyone doesn't want to watch us play, but maybe if you don't you shouldn't be ******** about the team.

    Jackson got hurt in the Oklahoma State game. He ran into Solo and hurt his face. Concussion protocol was negative and that is why he came back in the 2nd half of that game. However, watching him when he got hit he was definitely weaving around and I was shocked he didn't have a concussion. Not sure if he didn't play today because of the facial injury or if they diagnosed a concussion later.

    The game has changed over the past 10 years, its become hitting three pointers at a high rate, something we are not good at. I said before the game for ISU to win or be in the game we had to be around 10 made three pointers. We made 7/27, Auburn was 10/28, 9 points more from long distance.

    The number one goal for next year has got to be play more zone, and hitting 3 pointers at a higher rate. Shooting used to be our strength, now its our biggest weakness.

    As a resident Hawk “troll” that doesn’t post outside of the ISR forum I’m gonna give my 2 bits here.

    Bolton is kind of an enigma to me. Kid is super talented. He can drive at will....

    The hole in his game is decision making. He takes a lot of bad shots. His ability to get to the rim bails him out at times as he draws fouls.

    There was a sequence around the midway point of the second half where you guys got within 7 or 8....he basically had the ball 2 straight possessions. 1 ended up in a turnover as he a drove and the other ended up with a foul as he drove. I don’t think Halliburton touched the ball eithet possesion. Both were critical possessions.

    Halliburton actually signaled for the ball on one of them. He’s got to understand that he can create for others and specifically look for Halliburton when Halliburton is off the ball.

    The kid has the talent to be a great one IMO but I think at this moment he’s a little too single dimensional in that he’s looking for his shot regardless if it’s the smart decision

    Oh...and your boys battled back nicely there at the end. Bolton played a big part in that. Auburn is tough and the cyclones kept battling.
