Prediction

This game is always one of the highlights of the season, win or lose. Last year, Iowa State won after hosting College Gameday for the first time in program history. Gameday wasn't in town today, but a Big Monday stage on ESPN is perfect for the Cyclones to win another huge game in front of a national audience.

The matchups in tonight's game are going to be great. Perry Ellis vs. Georges Niang and Monte Morris vs. Frank Mason figure to be entertaining matchups, but I think the Wayne Selden vs. Abdel Nader battle could be what sways the outcome of this game the most. If Nader plays well, ISU is going to be tough to beat at home.

I say the Cyclones defend home court and deal KU another tough road loss.
