Fred Hoiberg’s Iowa State Cyclones find themselves ranked #17 in country after starting the 2013-2014 campaign 5-0. A team that was lacking experience coming into the year, was able to secure two big non-conference wins last week. First, defeating the #7 ranked Michigan Wolverines at home, and then going on the road to defeat BYU in Provo, UT.
This should not come as a surprise, especially for those that heard Coach Hoiberg speak at the 2013 Masters in Coaching Clinic. Hoiberg emphasized the importance of court spacing and identifying mismatches. Two things he learned from his time as a player and front office executive in the NBA.
It’s Feast Week and the college basketball schedule is packed with early season tournament games. Enjoy the games, safe travels and Happy Thanksgiving!
