Lessons Learned:

Mine: Looking at how capable they are to lose a lead.

Once a team makes a run to negate lead, tie; Stay mentally tough.

These last games show me some mentally toughness.

So much to clean up. But, beat some good teams, not playing our best ball.

Those are great wins to get early in the season facing that kind of adversity... Kind of wish they would have finished with a little swagger, but hopefully that will come as the season goes on.

important win for these two reasons

1. this will be a resume builder, iowa st. is going to be a top tier big 12 team, could be a 4-5 seed in the tourney.
2. shows the teams mental toughness, to bear down on defense when the wheels are off the offensive end.

Iowa State impressed me today. They're legit. The small ball could really wreck some teams. That said my takeaway is that the team didn't blink. They didn't fold. They clawed their way to an ugly win against a great opponent playing a style of ball that doesn't match us. This is a huge win because something can be learned from it. Same with Florida. That's the difference right now between SMC and us. GU is facing mismatches and styles of play that are difficult. They're facing pressure and athletes. This is a huge win and learning experience that will help the team gel.

Couple of great wins--- Florida projecting to be top 10 RPI (#9) and Iowa State coming in at #40 --resume building wins.

Kenpom has Fla about the same (10) but ISU 27th.

Brady and the Pats are otherworldly. Just saying.

Florida is currently a Top-10 RPI win, and Iowa St is Top-20 RPI.

Hope it stays that way...

Terrific resume builders. Both teams figure to be Top-3 in their respective Conferences (SEC & Big 12).

Inspired pick of Williams. Excellent recognition as he played sneaky well today.
