Momentum from one season can carry over to the next and that seems to be the case at Iowa State where Cyclone women are off to a 6-1 start to the season. After a 7-9 Big-12 record a year ago the Cyclones made a run to the NIT final four and coach Bill Fennelly believes there has been some carry over. He says it gave them a great chance to practice more and play four more games. He says it was kind of like a bowl game for football players and has helped them get off to a decent start. Fennelly says this is a much better shooting team than the past couple of seasons. He says when you play with the shot clock, you have to be able to get shots and score.The Cyclones head to Las Vegas this weekend for a tournament.
