So, I was bummed the margin of victory wasn't greater, but after looking at other results, I feel a little better. Iowa State was leading Baylor with 10 minutes left in the game before losing by 11 points. Also, Iowa State only lost to WVU by 5 points. Suffice it to say, looks like Iowa State has played hard against some other teams.

After watching (I had to record the game), I didn’t think the Horns played real well but in years past, they would have lost that game. I’m all about finding a way to win. Ugly wins are still wins! 
My thing is, will this team keep improving over the course of conference play. If they do, they have a real chance to do something.
