    It appears to me that Bolton needs to build some strength to help him finish. He can get in a position to do so, but he just isn't strong enough to finish through contact right now.

    Jacobsen and Nixon seem like great kids and they play hard but they have no business starting or even playing alot of minutes right now. The reason for Lewis not playing has always been his defense. Noone plays defense on this team so let's play lewis for his offense.

    Lewis has to be in some sort of dog house with Prohm for whatever reason, because he should be getting a lot more minutes.

    It was a loss, but the team sure didn't quit today. Nice job of battling back, wish that 3 with 10 sec left would have went down sure would have made the game interesting. Another good showing by ornery Solo. That one rebound he just ripped out that guy's hands. A loss but this team is beginning to show some heart much better than the Dec. swoon. Time to beat the Bears Wed (yep I'm an optimist, and hopeful thinker).

    He got 21 minutes coming off an injury. From reading this thread, you'd think he got 7 minutes.

    I am not mad about the team, just frustrated that guys that should be making shots are not. Grill and Lewis are both shooters, just keep hoping that they will start making shots. Grill in particular is mentally crushed from the 3 point line.

    Nixon wouldn’t be the best shooter at Lifetime Saturday morning pickup games.

    Hopefully a summer of putting up shots will cure these problems. Not to long ago people thought that Matt Thomas couldn't shoot the 3 maturity does wonders for some of these kids.

    This needs to be the starting lineup

    Halliburton
    Bolton
    Lewis
    Griffin
    Young

    Conditt and Jackson significant minutes off the bench.

    Jacobson, Nixon and Grill get limited minutes.

    Grill? Just isn't his year. When was the last time he made a shot anyway?

    Jacobsen has to to be about 0-40 on corner 3s this year.

    this matt thomas frosh narrative is getting old. the only thing matt and caleb have in common in skin color.

    "struggling" matt thomas still made 76 3's at 33% his first two years, on a team loaded with nba players and not many chances to get a ton of minutes. that changed with naz's injury.

    matt made 14 3's his first 6 games of his career and had double figure scoring in five of them. and even during a season below his hyped recruiting rankings, he had another strong stretch midway his frosh year and made like 5 3's in the first half against KSU.

    grill, tre, lewis, zion...they aren't even in matt's universe.

    Fair Point. Personally, I thought Auburn would blow Iowa State Out, and -8 was a lock bet. Glad I was wrong, and I have no complaints about the game. The Cyclones didn't quit, kept fighting and no shame in losing @ Auburn by 4. If we see that effort in every other game down the stretch, I'll be happy. Let's Go State!

    Also, at some point, you gotta think about what there is left to play for, it could be that playing Lewis and Griffin more than these two is what's good for the program going forward. They both have to make strides if next year is going to be any better than this year, may as well throw them in the fire.

    FWIW, I didn't have a huge problem with TL's minutes yesterday, he was banged up last week and still played 21 minutes. I would have liked to see him get a few more of the early minutes Grill got but with he played more than he has a lot of games this year.

    I am going to summarize this game paraphrasing a text from my brother --

    "I feel like the Iowa announcer that made fun of Maishe Dailey only it's why can't we recruit guys that can hit wide-open three-pointers."

    And it doesn't sound like next year's 'great' class is of that mold either.
