Iowa State coach Greg McDermott says the Cyclones cannot use lack of depth as an excuse for scoring droughts. Top ranked Kansas used a 14-0 run midway through the second half to break open a close game in a 73-59 win over the Cyclones on Saturday night. McDermott says he was disappointed with some of the mistakes they made in that run, against some of the same actions they had defended earlier in the game.
The Cyclones are 2-8 in the Big 12 and will be looking for a more consistent effort on Wednesday night when they host Oklahoma State. He says you can blame fatigue, but he says you only play five guys at a time and they should be able to fight through some things that they weren’t able to do against Kansas.
I.S.U. is 13-12 overall.
