MORE AWARDS FOR ROYCE! Royce White was named to the United States Basketball Writers Association All-District VI team. District VI includes Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.

EJIM, REALLY? According to Kirk Haaland, Melvin Ejim is actually Iowa State's most prolific scoring threat, and 13th in the Big 12.

WANT TO SEE SCOTTY DANCE? Iowa State will be featured as a CBS Live Look-In during the Selection Show this Sunday. This little gem comes from a great article from Randy Peterson on Fred Hoiberg's impact on the basketball program.

TEXAS HAS US ALL FIGURED OUT. Peter Bean of Burnt Orange Nation's Statistical Analysis Of Iowa State is pretty much spot on. The good news for us is that Rick Barnes still has to actually execute this game plan. Barking Carnival seems to think that a Texas victory will happen.

BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIP? At least one writer is giving the Cyclones a good shot to bring home the Big 12 crown this weekend.

IF THIS HAPPENS, I want Cy to do what the Western Kentucky mascot did upon winning the Sun Belt Championship.

ON THE OTHER HAND... ESPN named us one of the top 10 Goliaths (top 36 seeds) that are built to go down early in the NCAA tournament.

TEMPLETON RYE AND CYCLONES? Consider me interested. A feature from Cyclones.com on former kicker Michael Romey.
