70-52 win!

Another slow start for the Cyclones. Down by as many as 11 in the first half, they wound up only down 3 at half. They outscored the Huskies 39-18 in the 2nd half with stifling defense. At one point the Cyclones were 1-19 from 3, for 5%, before hitting a couple at the end of the game to wind up 3-25. I hope that doesn’t happen often! Shot great from inside.

The slow starts have to stop!

Gonna start writing a few notes per game, to remember the games I go to. ISU wins 110 – 74. The Delta Devils were overmatched, ISU really cruised in this one. We had 100 with 8:20 left in the game. Haliburton had 12 points to go with his 14 assists. He could have broken his school record of 17 had Prohm not taken him out. Jacobson led the way with 20.

Defense was really good, even toned down a bit for the Devils. We also went after the ball with gusto, and rebounded well. Very pleased with the first outing for 2019. Things look pretty good.

New Hobby: Brewing

I have taken up a new hobby, home brewing beer. Someone suggested that I put up some posts with process and beer updates, so I will take the opportunity to do just that! I am up to batch 11, all grain now! This all from seeing a Facebook for sale post for a bucket and a carboy for $25. I always wanted to try this, so why not start!
