So while I was home over the weekend, I found the highlight show put out by WOI from that year. Man was that a great team. They played so well together. Cato dunked so hard that I don't know how he didn't break his hand! Man, watching that tape makes me feel so good to bed a Cyclone fan even through the bad times. I can't wait until G-Mac has us back to those days!

I was @ the game in san antonio that year. Talk about an emotional roller coaster. The way we played in the first halfL we could have won it all that year. The second hald was one of the most stressful 20 minutes of basketball I have ever witnessed. Walking out after the game, I was following Gary Thompson and Martin Jischke (ISU pres at the time) you have never seen such a sullen look as the look on his face. I also remember GT saying we were one scorer away from the final four in reference to Shawn Bankhead.
Sorry, in all my excitement I forgot to spell be instead of bed. O well. The Cameron Dollar shot was the next year in the UCLA game. I'm talking about when we played Utah in the second round when Jacy, Dedric, and that bunch were all Juniors. As odd as this sounds, I think losing Joe Modderman from the Big 8 title team hurt. It really hurt our depth in terms of outside shooters. They were just a lot of fun to watch. I can't wait for this season to start!
