The Iowa State Cyclones will try to make it two in a row tonight when they host Baylor in Big-12 action. The Cyclones are coming off an impressive victory over Oklahoma on Saturday, their first of the season in the Big-12.Cyclone coach Wayne Morgan says they’re yound and are hopefully growing up and learning how to get a lead and hang onto it. Could Saturday’s victory be a turning point? Morgan says he certainly hopes so, and hopes they understand what they did Saturday and hopes that will help them sustain it.Iowa State did not make a shot from more than 12-feet in the win over the Sooners but Morgan says they are not giving up on the perimeter game. He says he doesn’t think they’re a team of bad shooters, he says they aren’t great shooters, but they have some good shooters. He says he still encourages his players to shoot the three’s if they’re open as he says at some point the shots will start going in.Baylor is 9-8 overall and 1-5 in the Big-12. Coach Scott Drew has only six scholarship players on the roster and while it is not a situation he enjoys it does help him in one phase. He says you don’t have to worry so much about playing time an keeping people happy. He says sometimes when a player wants to come out of a game, he has to tell them to stay in. Drew says his team faces a difficult challenge against the Cyclones, as he says they’re talented and playing in Ames in not easy. ISU is also 1-5 in the Big 12 and 9-8 overall.
