Iowa State goes back on the road to Nebraska Tuesday after ending a 28-game road losing streak in the Big 12 with a 92-80 upset over then 20th ranked Texas on Saturday. Cyclone coach Wayne Morgan says the victory was a great thing for the team. He says it was probably one of the most jubilant locker rooms he’s every seen and he had a feeling of “pure joy.” He says everyone was happy for Jared Homan who had never won a conference road game. Morgan says he was as happy as when he was at New Orleans and they won a game to get into the NCAA Tournament. Morgan says the win does give them confidence. He says they understand they can’t overlook anybody, but he says they may have a little feeling or rebirth or resurgance, and now feel defensively that they can stop people. He says it’s important for the team to be confident in its defense. He says they have to feed off their defense as he says they’re not the type of team that will outscore people. He says they have to get some stops and then hope to get some scoring opportunities.
