Iowa State: Evaluating the season after tournament loss to UAB

Believe that they will not be denied. I believed in Iowa State to rid their...

Iowa State: Assessing the team as Big 12 play looms

The Iowa State men’s basketball team has largely coasted through its non conference schedule this year. With one more game to play before Big 12 play, the Cyclones have posted a 10-1 record, and their solid play has placed them at #9 in the land.

Last season, Iowa State forward Georges Niang was listed at 240 pounds. While he wasn’t a huge guy by any stretch of the imagination, he has said that one of his goals was to get in better shape before the start of the season.
