The 57th meeting between Iowa State and Iowa is tonight in Hilton Coliseum and the Cyclones hope to snap a string in which the road team has won the last three games. The Cyclones are 10-3 and this will be the first Cyclone-Hawkeye matchup as head coach for I-S-U’s Wayne Morgan. Morgan says he knows it’s a big game and there are a lot feelings between fans from both schools.Freshman guards Will Blalock and Curtis Stinson have received much of the attention so far but Morgan says a big key to their success has been the leadership of senior Jake Sullivan. He says Sullivan has stepped back the shots he takes to get other people involved, and Morgan says Sullivan has shown the only thing he’s interest in is winning games.Iowa coach Steve Alford says the Cyclone guards are playing like veterans. He says the guards are better decision makers than they had last year. Alford says the Cyclones pose a difficult challenge as they’re undefeated at home and says Ames is a difficult environment to play in.
