SCRAPPY. HUSTLES. Josh Lenz's speed is deceptive to many... probably because he's white.
MOST IMPRESSIVE DEFENSE. At this time, Iowa State is leading the Big 12 blog poll for most impressive defense at 41%.

REBOUNDING TO RUN. Better rebounding leads to more fast breaks.
RIOT VOLLEYBOWL WIN. The Cyclone ladies swept the Mountaineers last night.
THAT OTHER BIG GAME IN THE BIG 12. Bill Connelly previews Texas-Oklahoma and the Red River Rivalry.
