Iowa State Cyclones Basketball Season Preview History
Iowa State Cyclones 2011-12 Men's College Basketball Preview
It will be up to ISU head coach (and former NBA journeyman) Fred Hoiberg to have a complete season in his second tour of duty in Ames. Last year, the Cyclones started off with a bang, going 13-2 before collapsing in the second half and limping to a 16-16 record. However, Hoiberg has brought in a group of transfers he believes can finish the year strong.
The main incoming player, however, may be their freshman guard, 5’9 shooting guard Tavon Sledge. He will start and lead players like power forward Royce White and small forward Chris Allen (in from Michigan State, where he played in two Final Fours). With this combination of fresh faces, ISU’s season is looking to change direction in 2011-12.
