Iowa State non-conference schedule revealed

Iowa State fans may be disappointed that neither Melvin Ejim nor DeAndre Kane were drafted in last night’s NBA Draft (I know I was). But there is still something to be excited about today, and that something is Iowa State’s non-conference schedule. Fred Hoiberg’s squad has another tough non-conference schedule this year.

Big Wing Melvin Ejim Is The Raptors Next Best Option

Toronto’s own Melvin Ejim spent four years at Iowa State as your typical undersized (for the next level) power forward that needs to become a big wing if he wants to play in the NBA. However, as a defensive player and the Raptors sitting with three picks, Ejim could become Toronto’s next best option at small forward under any number of possible circumstances.

Iowa State: Melvin Ejim can succeed in the NBA

I am not in any way a fan of the NBA. I much prefer college hoops. Teams play defense in college. Teams run offensive sets in college. Teams actually exist in college; some pro teams sometimes seems like there’s only one player on the court.

Iowa State Cyclones: Ejim and Kane get national accolades

It’s not at all surprising, but Iowa State seniors Melvin Ejim and DeAndre Kane have earned national honors.

Ice cold shooting finishes Iowa State

An uncharacteristically poor shooting display ended Iowa State’s hopes at a deep tournament run, as they fell to the UConn Huskies 81-76 this evening. UConn, on the other hand, shot lights out. The Huskies went 26-50 from the field (52 percent), 9-19 from deep (47 percent), and 20-22 from the charity stripe (91 percent). DeAndre Daniels had an incredible and surprising performance...

Iowa State starting forward Dustin Hogue doesn’t get quite as much attention as Melvin Ejim, DeAndre Kane or a few other of his teammates. Perhaps that’ll change tonight when his Cyclones take the court at Madison Square Garden against UConn. Hogue will be debuting a special haircut for the Sweet 16 matchup – he had his name, his jersey number and a basketball shaved into the...

No. 16 Iowa State beats K-State in Big 12 tourney

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg wanted to see an up-and-down game against plodding Kansas State, one where the scoreboard would spin like a slot machine as points piled up. He certainly didn't want to see the Wildcats with 85 by the end of it. "They do such a good job of slowing you down," Hoiberg said. "If you would have told me they were going...

Someone asked this question long before Iowa State even played the first of its 30 games – a question that today actually has some relevance. Who’s the Cyclone you’d most want to accompany you down a dark alley? Dustin Hogue, of course. “The guy’s just tough, flat-out tough,” teammate Melvin Ejim said. That’s pertinent in the 16th-ranked Cyclones’ 11:30 a.m. Thursday...
