Hey there, I'm sure I speak for others when I say that I'd really like to read a summary of select a seat night. I may be going to Creighton's select a seat night myself...thinking about getting season tickets as there is an article mentioning they may cap the season ticket sales in today's paper.

With my ticket "connection" gone I may have to break down and buy a couple seats for the season before it's too late.

Interesting Scrimmage

Well?here's some babbling in an effort to get some conversation started.

The Sycamores played hard in Monday's scrimmage. It was great to finally see some hoops!

Offensively, we looked a little confused at times but that's natural in a new system. We were a little overzealous with our back picks and had too many whistles for illegal screens. That can be easily fixed. We're very solid from the perimeter with lots of options in personnel. I would imagine the guys need some time on the floor against someone else...Thursday's game should help there. Beating on each other all summer and during the pre-season can wear you down mentally.

As usualy, the bigs will be the keys for ISU. Leitnaker showed some promise, especially on defense. You know Yelovich and Tunnell will play tough in the post, but can we score in there? We've got to find a way to get the "easy" points in the paint. When the jumpers are not going in, we could struggle. I really like the potential of frosh Isiah Martin...long, athletic, aggressive.

Guards are obvious strengths. Gabe is Gabe...very solid. Marco should be an all-conference guard by the end of the season. Aaron Carter is going to be a very good player, and Jordan Printy showed he can shoot the ball. Holmstrom can also flat out shoot it, and he isn't shy about challenging the bigs inside either. Lamar Lee is another kid with huge promise...ultra quick and a solid jumper. Harry is very athletic and finishes well around the hoop.

Adam looks to once again be a solid role player as a swing. I thought Barlow played really well, which has to bring smiles to the coaches' faces. He looks like he could be a very nice pick-up. McCoy is a banger who should help defensively.

Be patient...I think the team will be fine. Go Sycamores.
