The only thing that was and will be what beats UNI is the refs. Some friends have called me crazy but I've said from the get-go this team is elite eight/maybe even final four potential. They had a couple off nights throughout the year but this team was a 5 seed, NOT a 9 imo. I haven't seen a team compliment each other or be so basketball intelligent on the floor in a long time. They just stick to the basics, play absolute all out shut down D. Everyone knows their role. Make the other team play their style. Don't make turnovers (which I know they kinda started to at the end against KU.) plus it's not just Ali. Forakmanesh(sp?) is clutch, but No One on UNI is afraid to take the big shot when it's their chance/turn to be the open one. I mean look at Egleseder, one 3 all year, had a couple in the KU game. No greed on the team whatsoever.
