    So the basketball tournament is coming back, and there looks to be a new squad - Iowa United, which is going to have reps from all four of the D1 schools in the state. So far it's Tyrus McGee, Reed Timmer, Wes Washpun, and Nick Baer. Gonna be 4 more members they are announcing over the next 5 days. I think this is a better idea as we've simply had too hard of a time getting a team together from just ISU guys. Looking forward to it as always.

    Seth Tuttle was in last I knew.

    You should be able to put together a very, very competitive team.

    I still don't think any team they put in would win it, but hopefully they wouldn't get bounced right away.

    Lol. So much hype each year for the Iowa St team, then bust. I can't imagine the all Iowa team will be much better.

    Yeah, I was pretty excited about the team last year. Then a bunch of big names dropped out, and we got bounced early. I don't have any interest in a team that's not all Cyclones (and even then I wouldn't pay too much attention).

    Better sign up about 20 guys, then when half of them drop out at the last minute, they'll still have a roster to work with.

    This team will get rolled. I do like watching Tyrus play though.

    I looked forward to this the first couple years that there were a cyclone team, but this one won't get my interest. We now can actually get to watch our former cyclones by tuning in to the NBA's Northwest Division. Combine that with likely getting to watch THT, LW, and Shayok in the NBA summer league and I'm good.

    Hey guys....this is Matt and im the General Manager of Iowa United. Like any program it will take time to build, to get legitimacy and to be quite honest...the player pool just isn't that large. Everyone you have thought that we should ask, we have asked. Coach and I and our staff are excited about the 9 guys we have and think once you see the full roster you will see its versatility. The 4 guys we released are excellent players. Tyrus is a European champion going for another title. Reed Timmer is Drakes all time leading scorer and playing well overseas. Washpun is playing well in London and is a MVC tourney MVP, and Nicholas Baer, walk on or not, can play for us anytime. We love that kid.
    We will release the other 5 players...1 each day..starting next Monday.

    The 9 man roster scored over 12,000 points in college.

    We started this because we love basketball in the state and think this is a fun way to get the entire state involved. We get it...Georges Niang isn't walking through that door but
    Trust me..the last 5 players are solid.

    We have a lot of fun things planned this summer leading up to the tournament and will be very interactive with our supporters. We are also raising awareness for our states veterans partnering with FORE THE VETERANS who help our states veterans suffering with PTSD and other mental health issues.

    Thanks guys

    Matt

    I think the problem with the Iowa State only team is some of our best players in the last 5-10 years are all in the NBA. There isn't a massive talent pool of players in Europe. The teams you see do really well are either from smaller basketball schools(VCU and St. Mary's) or big time talent schools(Ohio State and Syracuse) or teams that combine the best available talent(Overseas Elite and Team Challenge ALS).

    Anyone willing to cover Zach McCabe's shift at Jimmy Johns so that he can play? This team needs an enforcer.
