TCU VICTORY. Melvin Ejim set no records when facing TCU this time, but he found a way to contribute despite early foul trouble.

NIANG IS STILL THE CLOSER. Steve Malchow talks about how when the team needs to find a way to win that Georges Niang is right there to make it happen.

WOMEN WIN TOO. The women notched a big home win over Texas that should help them get off the bubble and into the NCAA Tournament.

TALKING ABOUT MCKAY. Despite Iowa State being in the middle of a third straight 20+ win season, the Des Moines Register finds time to talk about Jameel McKay and what he brings to the table next season.

SENIOR DAY LOSS. The wrestlers had the honor of hosting the #1 ranked team in the nation, Minnesota, on Senior Day this year and lost 27-12.  The positive news is senior and #1 ranked 197 pounder Kyven Gadson won his final match in Hilton.

BREAKING DOWN THE OL. Jake Trotter ranks Iowa State's offensive line 8th in his pre-spring breakdown.  Hard to argue with this given last year's performance and a new offensive system being installed.  Even if Iowa State returns the most starting experience in the conference.

BIG XII > B1G. Well, at least for what I'm about to state.  With Michigan's win over Michigan State yesterday it's very likely that Iowa State will hold a win over the eventual B1G champion when the season is over.

BRACKETOLOGY. The Mothership has updated Bracketology with Iowa State projecting to be a 4-seed in the Midwest.  Pro: Second weekend in Indianapolis.  Con: First weekend in San Diego with 5-seed UCLA waiting for the second game.  This is why I try to not put much stock in these things...

BOEHEIM DOING EUSTACHY THINGS. First there was this play that was ruled a charge on CJ Fair:

Then there was Boeheim reacting to it, and since that GIF doesn't want to play nice, you can just follow the damn link.

Happy Monday everyone!
