Nice to see that kind of game tonight. Had plenty of teaching moments that Fran will pass on, I am sure. Had to love the start of both halves.
There is a new "White Lightning" in the making at Iowa.
GREAT WIN over fuisu's favorite team.
You mean we actually agree on something sports related?!
I think we do quite often, such as Romo sucks and many Iowa related things too, I was just harder on a QB that shall remain unnamed than you were is all.
In a lot of games, the winner is not necessarily the better team. A break here or there can swing the final score either way. Tonight I clearly felt Iowa WAS the better team. And better yet, we are young and will get much better in the coming weeks. In some games the win can be attributed to someone with a hot hand, or someone with a cold shooting touch. That was not the case tonight. Neither team played outside their normal parameters. We simply seem to have more upside than ISU tonight. Maybe that will be the case all season long.
On another topic, the BTN announcers gave the 6th man award to the ISU bench because they scored so much. What the????? Two of their starters were shut out! They only played 8 guys and one, a starter only played 5 minutes and another starter only player 13 minutes. Meanwhile, the Hawks had 10 buys on the court. Only 2, Ingram and May, played less than 10 minutes. Our 4 freshmen played 81 minutes!! That is just awesome! At least they recognized White for some kind of "Pro Player of the Game."
Good job boys. I was at an after-work function where they had no BTN in the restaurant/bar. However I kept taking sneak peaks on the wife's iPhone.
I am so thrilled, we really needed this win and owed ISU big time.
Let's Go Hawks!
Long break until the next game, and really need another win next week vs. UNI. 11-2 is a must going into BIG play.

This I disagree with. Clyburn did not play like he usually does tonight. Part of that was Iowa's defense, but he also seemed to just have an off night. Not saying that necessarily effected the outcome a whole bunch, but I think Iowa State played worse on offense than they have this season and Iowa played much better on defense than they have this season. Again, part of those is a product of each other, but not all of it.
Reply on BTN shortly. I will be watching -- maybe get another live game thread going!
11-2 is a must before BIG play. And we have to root for ISU big time all year -- for our benefit/rating.
Me too. Boy that was a fun game to be at! Carver was amazing.

I am so psyched -- almost sorry I "peeked" a few hours ago.
BTN on. Got some snacks out and chilling a few beers.
Let's Go Hawks -- again!
I DVRed it, hehehe.... But it's nice that the BTN is replaying again so soon.
Good sound on the TV. Iowa definitely had home court advantage. Its so nice compared to where that place was 2-3-4 years ago.
How did we not blow them out in the first half?
Up 22-15 and missed some easy shots.
Gessell really cold.
Hawks up 27-17 (but know they will be down 1 at the half).
Shot 1 for 11 from 3. Iowa had one of its "first half breakdowns" that they have sometimes. You know, when the other team lights it up and Iowa does nothing but suck until half? That happens.
UI2015, were you at the game in person earlier?
Second half should be fun.
ISU full of transfers. Wonder if they have a single player from the state?
Yes, I was. It was a great atmosphere!
2nd half is great. Clemmons really shows his toughness. McC really got a lot out of Gesell and Oglesby after both didn't play up to their ability in the first half. I'll stop ruining it for you now.
Well, buckle up fellas, lets see if we can pull 'er out!
I predict Fran will get MAD again, lol...
Hawks up 63-54. Glad to see Oglesby hot. Also good rebounds on both ends for Iowa.
White awesome. Hawks up 67-57.
Clemmons from long. 76-68.
