After two fantastic regular season battles last year, the last two matchups between ISU and KU have been hard fought, but disappointing for the Cyclones, who have watched Perry Ellis and Naadir Tharpe go off for career games. Now on a roll with the imposing Joel Embiid and fellow freshman phenom Andrew Wiggins, Kansas looks like a legitimate national title contender, and stealing a win from them at Phog Allen is an ever increasingly daunting task..
Since Big 12 started in 1996, Larry Eustachy has most wins of any opposing coach in Allen Fieldhouse with a whopping two.— Brent Blum (@brentblum) January 29, 2014
On bright side, Iowa State has most wins over KU of any team in Big 12 era. On down side, KU still leads series in that time 29-8.— Brent Blum (@brentblum) January 29, 2014
Can Fred Hoiberg start catching up to the Godfather tonight while adding to Iowa State's paltry, yet Big 12 leading win total over Kansas?
