Brain Davis is a beast. Going into halftime we had a 6 point lead. In little over a minute of game-time later, BD had doubled our lead. 6 points in 1:11. He would finish with 16 points, 7 boards, and 3 blocks; and that 6-0 streak that Davis started would extend to 20-5.

The first half was we what have seen this year. Poor shooting, stifling defense, and a small lead. The second half is what we all expected to see this year. Lights out shooting, stifling defense, and a large lead. When asked out the game, Iowa State senior forward Alex Thompson said, "They have a lot of depth on that front line - a lot of big bodies they bring in to bang around down there, and they really focus on getting the ball inside. I let them get too deep a few times." He let them get? I watched the game. I am pretty sure he had no choice.

In the OU game I was impressed with how quickly we were able to double-team down load. In the Iowa State game I was impressed with how we fought through screens. Overall "we're playing with much more toughness and much more poise, home and away."
