The Iowa State men return to action Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines when they host Bradley. The Braves are coming off a banner season that included a trip to the Sweet-16 of the NCAA Tournament.

Despite losing a number of key players from a year ago the Braves are off to a 6-3 start. I-S-U coach Greg McDermott who says Bradley is playing with confidence as there are several members back from the Sweet 16 team of last year.

McDermott says Bradley is winning in a different way this season. He says they’ve taken 223 three-point shots and are shooting just under 50 percent. McDermott says they have seven players who’re shooting above 40-percent from the three-point line, something he says is almost unheard of. Iowa State is 6-3.
