    I thought I read different. Maybe I am thinking of a different player.

    I agree. A team with some leadership that does not tear itself apart when things get rocky is #1. Since I have no idea how you get there, I'll focus on talent....

    Two guys I'm really looking forward to taking a big jump: Soloman Young and Terrance Lewis. We know we missed Solo's toughness to bang down low, and he also showed a bit of an outside J in his limited time last year. He has all the talent in the world. If he can learn to catch and finish, would be huge.

    Lewis can be the outside sniper that we have been missing. Just needs to be consistent on his shot. Not worrying about getting yanked for one miss, I think will help him be more comfortable on the floor.

    'Adding' those two guys to the rotation are almost like getting having two sit-out transfers coming in. They've been with the team and know the chemistry and have some experience.

    Admon Gilder of A&M is grad transferring. 6'4 200 lb guard. Sat out this year with a blood clot issue. Last year averaged 12.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Shot 46% overall and 40% from 3. You'd think that Kennedy would put in a good word. Would be a great addition IMO.

    It's not the scheme. It's the willingness for 5 players out of 5 to perform their assignments. When that was happening, our defense was very, very good.

    For some reason we liked to stand around and watch a guy try to play hero ball 1 on 3 more and more as the season progressed.

    Agree...i remember several games in the elite 8/final four where the announcers would say things like "so and so is on a 4-6 minute drought"....very common...we just tend to see what we want to see/critique.

    We need to be physically and mentally tougher. It's what sets our 2000 men's team apart from all our other teams.
    I think DeAndre Kane a few years ago was physically and mentally tough too. He was also about 24 years old.

    Better ball movement, better team effort/defense, and better rebounding would make me happy.

    We also need guys who will rebound and also not run back on defense before the shooter even releases the ball.

    Conditt seems to be more of a possession type shot blocker if that makes sense, as in he may block shots but in a way where the ball is still in play and there's a chance for ISU to gain possession. As opposed to the Kevin Garnett 3rd row swat that looks great but basically just lets the opponent pause and set something up.

    Or at least make a close shooter uncomfortable which is also effective. This type of playing would have benefited in situations like KSU's Brown's winner in Hilton.

    6'11, so not 6'10, so basically a waste of a scholly. Do not want.

    Young has "all the talent in the world", but can't catch and finish?

    My unpopular opinion: Solomon Young's value is largely overstated on this board.

    I would love to see ISU land a beast in the middle. Like Hasse from Purdue, or Wesson from tOSU. Guys like that make a huge difference.

    Better defense and rebounding. Prohm's teams are better than Freddie's, but need to get better. It's VERY RARE for ISU to out rebound anyone. Check the stats of any game they played this year... always on the short end. Time to tilt that table in our favor.

    Two 6'9"+ guys who don't get pushed off the block, and a 40% three point shooter go a long way.
