Does UK guard Royce White like they used to pistol pete. He always had his way with UK but they shut everybody else down and he never won a game against UK as far as I know. How likely will it be the same type of game plan?
If they do, they're getting beat.
Better come ready to SMOTHER the 3-point arc. Defend the 3, win the game. It's that simple.

Will TJ guard him?
I think a combination of TJ and Davis will be enough to slow him down. I agree. Guard the three. Royce isn't unstoppable. He was close to becoming a Wildcat. Can you imagine?
i say TJ guard Royce,
Have davis guard the 3 from the post. BUWAHAHAHAHHA
Tonight was the first time I saw him play this year and I had to give some credit to him. Though Pistol Pete he aint he seemed to be very calm and relaxed even when under pressure, has really good style about him. I agree though that TJ I think is quick enough to guard him. Even if he has a big game, if we can squeeze everyone else down they will have a hard time beating the big blue.
Who does White guard? Make him work on D.
Get him in foul trouble and it is a blowout.
Biggest thing is guarding 3s and transition D.
They will run w us.
Should be entertaining!
Lock 'em down through the 3pt line, and we should be alright. White worries me.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Doubtful. Their coach has said they will have to slow it down to beat us because we're so great in transition.
I agree, but they have a relatively small team and the Cats have Davis. Who on ISU is going to guard and stop him? Should be a good game, but I see the Cats pulling away for an easy win in the last ten minutes.
Was hoping they'd run w us.
UConn did not make White work on D.
I suspect we will.
Nate, I agree. The Cats are the better team, and will prevail. Cal should game plan pretty good for White. Was just saying he could be a problem. But Davis is an equal or bigger problem for ISU.
Great point. Works both ways, and UK can roll a lot of different guys at him on both ends of the floor.
exactly..miller jones davis and gilchrist can all guard him...throw a bunch of different guys at him with different size and strength and never let him get comfortable...i think we will be fine we r one of a few teams who have a few guys as big and athletic as him so we will be fine
We should double team him when in gets in the paint from behind. He's not gonna beat you with quickness so stay in front of him make him spin back or pivot back and when he does the double should be all over him. I wouldn't do it every possession because he'll get used to it and adjust and hit 3 pt shooters but every now and then come at him with it see if we can get a turnover and an easy basket going the other way.
UConn didn't make ISU work on D and their selfish play, mostly one on one crap, allowed ISU to dictate the game. UConn had zippy inside post play and really made things easy for the Cyclones. Lets see what happens when they are forced to play interior defense against one of the best front lines in the country. ISU plays a lot of dribble drive stuff and I think Cal has an idea or two on how to defend that.
Well, Maravich could only score two points at a time no matter how deep he was.
After watching the Iowa st game last night white is very impressive but I think jones is just as strong but jones is longer and more athletic I think jones can and will shut him down and they can't match up with the rest of our starters
Maravich was a volume shooter/scorer though. If you leave White unattended, he does so many things scoring, rebounding and setting up his teammates that he'll destroy you.
You have to run a guy at White and make him think a little bit and recover out like crazy to the shooters.
I think having played Florida and Vanderbilt will have helped prepare UK for this game.
Someone on ESPN said that White will have very different results against UK. (I think it was one of the guys that appears with Sir Charles).
