Getting Up to Speed
Iowa State Holds Off the Horns - Behind big performances out of Georges Niang and Monte Morris, Iowa State defeated a Texas team that's been playing some great basketball.
We're Talking Baylor - ISU has gone 0-3 in their last three games against the Bears and have also struggled lately in the Ferrell Center.
The Shootaround: It's Gut Check Time - The guys over at Our Daily Bears say tonight's game is the most important of the season so far for Baylor.
Iowa St.-Baylor Preview - ESPN notes how the Jameel McKay suspension has made Iowa State into a deeper team.
I predict Scott Drew will call some weird timeouts, Iowa State will struggle against the Baylor zone, and BU will hit approximately 942 3-pointers. In other words, pretty much the same outcome of the last few games between the Cyclones and Bears.
Please be wrong, Kevin.
Baylor 79 - Iowa State 74
