WACO IS WACKO. Waco is becoming a house of horrors for Iowa State basketball, and a lack of execution down the stretch doomed the Cyclones, including execution by the clock operator.

WHAT DOES IT EVEN MEAN. Depending on who you talk to, this loss to the de facto number one team either really stings or signifies hope that they Cyclones can really make a run this season...or both.

TWISTER SISTERS LOSE IN LUBBOCK. The Iowa State women are struggling with some late game execution issues of their own as they lost their third straight game in the fourth quarter.

KAMARI COTTON-MOVING? Coach Campbell addressed the rumors of a KCM transfer yesterday.

ALL-STAR GAME. Jomal Wiltz and Jarnor Jones will get one more chance to take the field representing Iowa State at the 2017 College Gridiron Showcase All-Star Game.

CYCLONE FIRST. Iowa State Tennis player, Samantha Budai, is the first Cyclone to ever receive a ranking by the ITA.

NUMBER ONE GOES DOWN. Just a damn shame, number two couldn’t go with them.

ONE GAME SUSPENSION. The indefinite suspension for Grayson Allen turned definite yesterday after he returned to the starting lineup after just one game.

DINKY TOWN DISASTER. Whatever is going on in Minnesota the last month is extremely concerning after player reactions and former coach reactions to the firing of Tracy Claeys. Meanwhile, the search continues with PJ Fleck and Ken Niumatalolo.
