    Recruiting

    Big AAU event in Iowa wrapped up yesterday, Battle of the Best - All Iowa Attack's premier tournament. All-Iowa beat north Tartan in the top tier. Assuming with a degree of certainty that Whalen and staff were there, heard via ISU board LOTS of coaches from around the country, including Geno...

    2024 Recruiting

    Sort of cookie cutter Tweets but Olson visited both major Iowa universities this week. Same mirror image posts. Obviously going to be bigger competition than ISU and Iowa from the blue blood WBB schools. Kinda cool to have another elite level recruit only a suburb away from me again...

    Maryland extended Frese's contract through the 2026-27 season. Not that anyone thought she would be going anywhere but stranger things have happened. https://umterps.com/news/2021/5/25/womens-basketball-maryland-announces-contract-extension-for-brenda-frese.aspx

    Iowa’s Jordan Bohannon suffers a serious head injury during an assault

    Probably not what he was looking for though. He's got a reputation as being a social media provocateur and was probably looking for good stuff (or just stupid drunk) for his podcast or Twitter. Even many Hawk fans will admit he is an extreme "look at me" narcissist. Thing is the pro...

    Transfer Portal

    Ha, no not "sore". And as a MN guy I also follow the Gophers. This is more me and my take on how Midwest peeps love their small town or home state gals, sometimes a little too much. The South Dakota teams are legit and, like Drake and Mizzu State, play great team ball. I do have to hand it to...

    Transfer Portal

    Down to a final week for players to enter the portal and be eligible for next year. Cutoff date is May 1. Guessing most everyone that is leaving has entered. One big shoe that may yet fall, Kim Mulkey is rumored to be heading to LSU. Seemed to go from an LSU fan blog generated hot rumor to...

    Transfer Portal

    Already have a ton of guards and she was not a highly rated player in the 2020 class nationally. Might be one of those high scoring HS gals that is really a mid-major level talent better suited for one of the Dakota schools or a UNI or Drake. Just my unqualified hot take.

    Eli King commits to Iowa State

    ^Truth. The only midwestern white boys on the Cyclone roster this past season were three walk-ons. The previous year was one scholarship guy. I can really only think of one squad in the last 50 years that was mostly Iowa white dudes, Johnny Orr's last squad with local Ames boy Fred Hoiberg...

    Transfer Portal

    Minnesotan Lauren Jensen, Iowa, is entering the portal. Can't really see Gophers interested but of state fan interest.

    B1G Team Notes 2021-22

    And quite the meltdown going on within my fellow Cyclone fan base. Bunch of old men acting like 12 year olds isn't impressing me much. I can't get with all of the ex-player dissing. I can't be all welcoming arms for a transfer in and go all nasty internet tough guy on some teenager that's...

    Transfer Portal

    Nyamer Diew committed to Iowa State today. Might be a good get for the Cyclones. Had listed it here because of her North Tartan and Minnesota connection, really had no idea who would be recruiting her but thought Gophers would be in the mix.

    2021-2022 season.

    Huge swing and a miss for closer schools in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. Doubly so for Stolling after reading that HS days quote from Lee. Dang. Not like her recruiting profile had closer teams going up against UConn and the like.

    2021-2022 season.

    Man, even after decades since attending Iowa State I STILL have to pause and think for a second as to which is in Lawrence and which is in Manhattan.

    2021-2022 season.

    Different teams. Lee plays for Kansas State, Helgren and the two other posts that opted out played for Kansas. A freshman from Greece was starting at Kansas over the trio of 6'-5" gals that opted out. My wild guess is that since Kansas has really sucked they decided to go all in with the...

    Bailey Helgrem

    It was odd, with three centers opting out at Kansas at the end of the calendar year and the coach noting that none were expected back. Kansas already seemed committed to playing a freshman gal from Greece who got freshman of the week honors a couple of times before fading against better teams...

    Gabe to Iowa State

    Iowa State has a decent undergraduate business college. My hot take, without looking, is that for post-graduate level that Carlson at the U would be better. We have two graduating seniors in WBB with biz/marketing degrees. One entered the portal to transfer for grad school. Wanting to see...

    Gabe to Iowa State

    Looked at the bio, still listed in previous years roster, and he's a marketing/business major.

    Gabe to Iowa State

    Maybe as good as they were going to get. It's not a great job right now. There is a faithful fan base that's crazy about Hilton Magic but the programs not in good shape right now nor is it as good a P5/6 job as the fans think. Our AD caught lightning in a bottle with the Hoiberg hire, this...
