Not Enough Quality Wins?


A knock against ISU, at least for a while, by Jerry Palm among others was that the Clones didn't have a strong enough record vs. the RPI top 100 (we ended up with a respectable 6 - Kansas, Lehigh, K-ST(2), Texas, Baylor) and 2 more over those just out of the top 100 (Iowa and OSU). But when you consider that 5 of those 6 wins came against teams making it to the round of 32 it puts ISU's quality wins in a different perspective.

In fact, ISU is 5-2 against the round of 32 teams and their only two losses came against teams they also beat (Kansas, Baylor).

On another note... Everyone kept talking about the UConn - Kentucky rematch, but I am a little suprised that nobody has picked up the narrative on the ISU - Kentucky rematch. It was 20 years ago that ISU played Kentucky in the second round of the NCAA tournament when a young Freshman Fred Hoiberg played in his first NCAA tournament against the likes of guys named Mashburn and Farmer, and they almost pulled that one off. Kentucky was a heavy favorite that year against the #10 seed Cyclones and made it to the finals against Duke. Now in his first tournament as a Coach Hoiberg gets another chance.
