Half time 31-30 Hawks. We are lucky to be ahead with that half. Sycamore's playing tough!
Dakich annoys me.
"I was brought in here to change the culture. I'm going to coach with passion" - Fran McCaffery.
Interesting comment by the ESPN halftime show dude, who has played in CHA. Said CHA one of the toughest places to play WHEN(WHEN!) the fans are behind them. What does that tell you? We got more of a hootin' problem instead of a shootin' problem.
Need to send shock impulses to the seats in the arena if no movement within 5 minutes. That does not appear to be a problem tonight, but fill them with season ticket holders and it seems to be a problem.
Every announcer annoys some fans. I personally like Dan Dakich. He provides some insight and critiques the game without really criticizing the players. It is, "That was a bad move out of a darn talented player", instead of "With plays like that, he will never be a major talent at this level.,"
Each to his own said the farmer, as he kissed his Holstein.
Good morning gents. Just arrived at work...
UI- who is dakich?
Close game. ISU is a decent team. 8 asst on 11 baskets. Not bad. It looks like Iowa needs to pound inside. And will pull away with the rebounds and when they will make their FREE throws. Is Marble forcing the 3s?
WE need a BIGGER and wider basket!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unreal...3 misses...or was it 4 in a row? Come on hawks! Let's blow this lead open
Would be nice if the HAWKS would smell the blood in the water a lot sooner!!
Credit to their player Gant...that was a nice hook shot.
IMSR, Dan Dakich was a guard on some of Indiana's more successful teams under Bobby Knight.
ahahahahah 6 on the court. yikes.
The announcer with the deeper voice. He was a player at Indiana, coached at Bowling Green State. Has an ESPN show now, he likes to troll fanbases and they gets pissy when people hate on him.
way to make the two free throws on the t-foul count!
Ok, I just looked him up. Yes, did play for night from 82-85, team captain for the last 2 years. Was ok but was remembered for this good but funny story: (from wiki of course)
Dakich is best remembered for his defensive effort against Michael Jordan in Indiana's upset of No. 1 ranked North Carolina in the 1984 East Regional Semifinal of the NCAA Tournament. It was only Dakich's sixth start of the year, but coach Knight assigned him to guard Jordan the afternoon of the game. Knight told him, "Just don't let him dunk on you. That will embarrass you and me both." Dakich later reported, "I went back to my room and threw up." He held Jordan to just 3 points and caused him to foul out. Indiana ultimately won the game 72-68.
Ok, back to the game. Sloppy with turnovers by both teams but luckily Iowa is scoring so far in this half.
McCabe is buckets tonight.
Atta boy McCabe. Way to step up. CHA is rockin now!
When McCabe throws up a rainbow arc on his 3 pointer, the odds favor an Iowa 3 point play.
I might be wrong, but it looks like we are shutting down their best player odum...only 3 points so far. Averages 14. OUr defense this half has been a complete 180.
I don't know what Fran said in the locker room but it worked.
I want an Eric May throw down.
Stony Brook up 11 in the 2nd half on UMass. If that score holds up, Iowa will have another home game.
Smelling the blood now, Hawks? Hope so!!!!!
Free throws!!!! Come on
FWIW, I'm reading that if Iowa and Stony Brook both hang on, the Hawks will likely host the Seawolves on Friday night.
Was just going to mention this! Not sure if that will get as large of a crowd, but I'd hope so. I saw a stat earlier that if Iowa wins the NIT, they would have the 2nd most wins in school history this year.
