Iowa State Athletics
WHAT’S THE DEAL? Travis Hines takes a look at the drastic difference in first and second half offense which could simultaneously make you laugh and cry.
ROLL WITH BURTON. Prohm explains why he’s riding out the highs and lows with the Cyclones’ polarizing star.
SIGNING DAY COMING. Check in on where Iowa State stands currently with its 2017 class and what other recruits they may land before NSD. Don’t forget yesterday’s big addition though.
TWISTER SISTERS FALL IN NORMAN. Iowa State, again, played really well for about 35 minutes, but fell short in the end.
THAT’S A WISE RECRUIT. Iowa State Women’s Basketball signee Maddie Wise eclipsed the 2,000 point and 1,000 rebound milestones.
Congratulations to Cyclone signee @em_wise10 on reaching 2,000 career points and 1,000 rebounds! pic.twitter.com/uDoXml3E3d— Cyclone Basketball (@CycloneWBB) January 25, 2017
Around the Country
KANSAS BASKETBALL. 5 Kansas basketball players have been named as witnesses in the alleged sexual assault of a 16-year old female that occurred at McCarthy Hall - the basketball players’ dorm.
THE BIG 12 IS GOOD. Next time you hear national pundits raving about the ACC and it’s depth, just remember the following:
Wow, #Big12MBB came to play this season. #Big12 pic.twitter.com/H37RUhlV8v— Big 12 Conference (@Big12Conference) January 25, 2017
ANYONE BUT KANSAS. Baylor stays alive in the “anyone but Kansas” stakes, by slow bleeding another opponent to death at home. Elsewhere, UCLA became the 5th top 10 team to fall this week.
T-SHIRTS! Beating the #17 team on the road isn’t necessarily t-shirt worthy, but NC State winning at Duke for the first time in 22 years is.
ROYCE ISN’T GIVING UP. Royce White has returned to basketball up in the Great White North, but he hasn’t given up his fight to push the NBA to address mental health issues.
MAYBE LESS COMMERCIALS? The Celtics will be wearing a General Electric patch on their uniforms next year. Here’s to hoping the NBA moves ads from unnecessary commercial breaks to jerseys.

WHEW. The NBA could also show less commercials in favor of showing this vine of former Michigan star, Caris LaVert ending former UNC star, Wayne Ellington’s career on a loop during timeouts.

SPEAKING OF THE NBA. Fred still has his hands full.

“YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE.” At Brent Musburger’s retirement. Sad as it is to see the legend retire from broadcasting, he’s apparently headed to do what he loves.
Moving to a Vegas to be a 'capper? Legends do legendary things.— Scott Van Pelt (@notthefakeSVP) January 25, 2017
He definitely left a trail of memories for everyone and will be missed in Iowa.
Favorite Musburger memory: sitting in Ames, IA bar for NFL game (drinking milk) listening to Brent go back and forth with every bar patron.— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) January 25, 2017
Thanks for the memories, Brent! #legend pic.twitter.com/eTDMU0Gj81— Cyclone Basketball (@CycloneMBB) January 25, 2017
OH, SURE ROGER. We almost believe you when you say things like “it would be an honor handing the trophy to Brady” and “Thursday Night Football is good.”
Roger Goodell on @TheHerd: "Almost by every barometer the quality of the games is better on Thursday night."— Ryan Hannable (@RyanHannable) January 25, 2017
