Two major 2015-16 men's basketball coaches' polls were released today, and Iowa State found itself sitting about where most expected in each.
Way up there.
Around 9:30 this morning the Big 12 published its preseason coaches' poll, where the Cyclones sit at No. 3, just two points behind Oklahoma. Kansas, as expected, was your top vote-getter. Iowa State did receive one 1st place vote.
And hey, good for you, Ribbit.
About 90 minutes later, USA Today released its first Top 25 Coaches' Poll, and the Cyclones found themselves at 7th, trailing Kentucky, North Carolina, Maryland, Duke, Kansas (who all received 1st place votes) and Virginia.
Fellow Big 12 brethren Oklahoma (8th), Baylor (21st) and West Virginia (23rd) also cracked the top 25. Texas received 29 votes, good for 34th.
The Cyclones, as it appears below, will have 13 games scheduled against opponents who received votes in the poll.
