Tough news for the Cyclones. Lucca leaves, Gilstrap just found out this morning that his Uncle has passed away. A big challenge for this team, not just basketball-wise, but emotionally. This team is either going to rally and come out guns blazing, or they're going to come out flat, distracted by their emotions and play flat. Nobody really knows, so we'll have to wait and see.
Christopherson is starting in place of Lucca, and Colvin will suit up and is available for tonights' game. Tips off at 6:30pm CST on WOI in Central Iowa.
I'll be posting my thoughts here during the game. Join me in the fun if you'd like. The more, the merrier!
