The show must go on and on the day of Johnny Orr's passing, Iowa State will pay tribute to the legendary coach in the most fitting of ways - by taking the court and protecting Hilton Coliseum.
There will be a tribute to Orr ten minutes prior to tip off and the atmosphere should be electric as there will be a sellout crowd on hand to watch Iowa State close out 2013.
Northern Illinois shouldn't pose much trouble for Iowa State and this one should be well in hand going into the second half. With the win, Iowa State would move to 12-0 going into the conference opener on Saturday at Texas Tech.
