Fred Hoiberg over Steve Alford? Absolutely, according to a cbssports.com ranking of NCAA Tournament coaches based on their playing ability. The web site ranked Iowa State’s coach fourth among the 68 with teams in the tournament.

Social media? Social injustice. That’s what the state’s two most recognized men’s basketball coaches offered Monday — one with a ban, and the other with a verbal assault. “Social media has taken over so many peoples’ young lives, and I think it’s a disgrace,” Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. “I think social media is […]

Hawkeyes can’t hold late lead, fall 85-82 to Iowa State

[ 0 ] December 13, 2013

AMES, Ia. – For a while Friday night, Iowa State basketball coach Fred Hoiberg was speechless. How did your 17th-ranked team rally from yet another double-digit deficit before beating 23rd-ranked Iowa 85-82 in front of a sold out crowd at Hilton Coliseum? “In all honesty, I have no idea how we won that game,” Hoiberg said, […]

How big is this Iowa-Iowa State basketball game?

[ 0 ] December 12, 2013

Ames, Ia. – Depending which side of the scoreboard you reside, Friday night’s Iowa-Iowa State basketball game is either bigger than the most recent Cy-Hawk football game — or it isn’t. There’s not much middle ground when talking sports at the state’s two major universities, and that’s especially evident in this one. The 8:30 p.m. […]

Cyclone, Hawkeye rivals on the court, but close friends otherwise

[ 0 ] December 11, 2013

There will be talking among Iowa State and Iowa men’s basketball players Friday night. You get that many Michiganders and a ball in one room together, even when that room just happens to be 14,384-seat Hilton Coliseum in Ames, and trash will be talked. And especially be watching if Iowa State’s Monte Morris and Iowa’s […]

[ 0 ] December 10, 2013

I heard people discussing Friday night’s Iowa-Iowa State men’s basketball game, which starts at 8:30 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. Some were saying that this year’s basketball game is bigger than the most recent Iowa State-Iowa football game. Hmmm. It’s the first time since Dec. 19, 1987 that the rivals have met as rated opponents. That […]

Weisman leads the way as Hawkeyes top Iowa State, 27-21

[ 0 ] September 14, 2013

AMES, Ia. – Mark Weisman right. Mark Weisman left. Mark Weisman up the middle. You name it, Iowa’s 236-pound tailback did it, but his 145 yards on 35 carries aren’t the only reason this Cy-Hawk rivalry tilts back to the east. There were other reasons for the Hawkeyes’ 27-21 victory, and one of them is […]
