Big XII: Defensive Struggle Early

By Jean Neuberger - March 06, 2007


This game is going to be a physical one, as Iowa State has taken a 4-0 lead after the first four minutes. Unlike the first game though, where sloppy play kept the scoring low, it's physical defense and scrappy play that has made this a tight defensive game.

Players are elbowing, falling down and scrambling for boards, diving out of bounds...it's a good thing that everyone's seated a good distance from the court! No one is safe...especially the cheer squads.

Kansas State is having trouble getting a decent look, as ISU's swarming pressure defense is providing fits for the Wildcats. So far, every single KSU shot has been met with a pair (or three) of Cyclone hands.

Meanwhile, Kansas State is pushing Iowa State hard, refusing to give much inside to the Cyclones, and ISU is having trouble shooting around the perimeter.

This definitely has the making of a low-scoring slugfest.
