Most of us expected to be playing Purdue in the championship game. I'm surprised.
Anyways... here's the stats you've been dying to read.
Iowa State comes in at 7-4 riding a 4 game winning streak. They did lose a close one to mighty Drake (79-44), but things have turned around since then.
- 44% FG
- 29% 3PT FG
- 68% FT
- +1.2 rebound margin
- 13.5 turnovers per game
4 guys come in scoring 10+ PPG. Bryan Petersen and Rahshon Clark are the guys to watch from beyond the arc while freshman Craig Brackens (6'10") and senior center Jiri Hubalek (6'11") bang it inside.
Prediction- Hendrix is going to have a harder time dominating the paint so we need the guards to step up. I look for another good game from Gee and hope Riley finds his range. Alabama by 6.
I think there's going to be a bigger crowd tonight... as I was leaving the game I saw quite a few Iowa State fans lining up to get in. I'm back in the ATL so DJC is going to have to harrass the officials on his own :).
