    I do however wish Jared Homan had some eligibility left just for tonight’s game.

    I don't believe that, especially with ISU still not at full roster, and not if ISU is good the rest of the way.

    MAYBE a seed down but that means another bad loss on the way.

    That is my point... For instance If it comes down to a choice between us and team X to be in Des Moines, this loss will not help.

    Of course this is assuming Iowa doesn't maintain its current ranking...

    I think it’s helpful that I have managed to get to this point in life with absolutely no friends who are Hawk fans.

    In Des Moines.

    This program needs to have higher expectations than to just make the tournament.

    Totally agree about the 3 point shooting. We have a small team, currently, that is not a good 3 point shooting team. Could've used that trying to come back instead of taking 25 seconds trying to find a shot.

    Historically it doesn't.

    And with this team it doesn't. Make the tourney most years, occasionally get a nice seed with a legit team.

    THT is a freshman making an abundance of freshman mistakes and shooting absolutely awful.

    Shayok is forcing way too much and will be much better in a secondary roll to Wigs when he returns. To his defense, he's never been a go-to guy since probably high school so on the road for the first time will be a struggle

    Can't wait for the return of our best shooter and scoring leader.

    For a comparison I'd rather our program be more like Duke than Dayton.

    I've said this from the beginning of the year, those two players might win us a lot of games, but they will lose us 4-5 because they have a tendency to play selfish.

    This team needs Babb to be the aggressor.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Babb is playing hurt and people that ***** about THT or shayoks attitude might want to take a look at nick.

    I agree. Nick needs to establish early in games so that his dribble drive becomes a weapon

    If you can go back about 50 years and have ISU do what Duke was doing, that will work.

    Otherwise you're stuck with a decent basketball program that occasionally could beat those teams.

    Sorry, not going to temper my expectations.

    This isn't a season ending loss by any means, but it isn't what anyone would consider positive. Sorry if you can't deal with that reality.

    Feel free to go back and watch the ball stick in their hands in the games. Don't get me wrong, I love their play making skills, but they aren't consistent enough to lead us night in and night out.
