The Iowa State Cyclones are on the road in the Big-12 to take on Nebraska. ISU is 5-9 in the Big-12 and beat the Huskers in their first meeting in Ames back on January tenth. Cyclone coach Greg McDermott says Nebraska was playing well at the time and says they did a good job on Husker center Alex Maric who is averaging nearly 18 points per game.
McDermott says as a group the team is doing a good job of getting the ball to Maric and Maric has been able to score and get to the free throw line. McDermott says Nebraska surrounds Maric with players who can shoot the three, making it a challenge for the defense.
McDermott says Nebraska guard Charles Richardson gets everyone involved and his assist to turnover ratio has been outstanding. The Cyclones are 14-14 overall. Nebraska is 16-11 overall and 5-8 in the conference.
