This has been perhaps the most exciting offseason in the history of the Iowa State Cyclones basketball program, as Coach McDermott has left for Creighton, and Fred Hoiberg has returned home to take his team to the top. Hoiberg played for the Cyclones from ‘91 through ‘95, and is considered to be one of the most popular players in Iowa State history. Just how popular was Hoiberg during his playing days? During his time in Ames, he gained the nickname “The Mayor” after he received a write-in vote for the Ames mayoral race. Get your Iowa State basketball tickets today.
But of course, Hoiberg is more than just a nice guy, and he is more than just a good basketball player. Coach Hoiberg is also a great basketball mind, and after 10 years playing in the NBA, followed by a stint in the front office with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Hoiberg returns to the court as a coach, and fans could not be happier.
The Iowa State Cyclones roster gives Coach Hoiberg plenty to work with this season. With the recent transfer of Chris Allen from Michigan State, and with the addition of superstar freshman forward Royce White, this looks like it could be one of the best teams to come through Ames in years. It has been a long time since the success the Cyclones experienced in the early 2000s, and all signs indicate that the changes in Ames this season could be the start of another run of winning basketball. So now is the time to get your Iowa State basketball tickets.
The Iowa State Cyclones schedule will be full of exciting action, as plenty of great non-conference games will be played on top of the always-thrilling Big 12 Conference schedule. The Cyclones will open the season in November with four games at the Hilton Coliseum before hitting the road to meet up with Coach McDermott and Creighton. At the end of November, Montana State will visit Ames, and early the next month the Cyclones will host California in the Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series. Conference play begins in January, and the Cyclones should have enough momentum by that point to make some serious noise in the Big 12 and be a threat in the Big 12 Conference Tournament.
Iowa State Cyclones basketball tickets are bound to disappear quickly this season, as fans visit Ames to see the return of The Mayor, so make your plans now to see this team in action.
