Iowa State: Evaluating the season after tournament loss to UAB

It is hard to put into words how bitterly disappointed, shocked and devastated I am about this Iowa State loss. As a fan and believer in the team’s capabilities, of course I picked them to emerge out of the South Region. If their Big 12 tournament run had told me anything, it was to believe in this team. Believe that they will not be denied. I believed in Iowa State to rid their...

What Iowa State basketball needs to get even further is several rebounding presences who can dominate the glass. I have said this before in past pieces. Iowa State can live and die by their...

NCAA Tournament: What we’ve learned

Nothing. That’s what we’ve learned for this season’s NCAA Tournament, nothing. I couldn’t sit here and write a sentence that would predict what was going to happen next in this mayhem, because everything we’ve expected has basically been false.
