Kansas coach Mark Mangino says the Jayhawks will meet an improved Iowa State team this weekend. The Cyclones was have back-to-back games and will challenge a Kansas team that is 10-0 and ranked fourth nationally. Mangino says Iowa State is playing very well and they’re preparing for them to come down and says they need to play well to match up.

Mangino says the Cyclones are playing well on both sides of the ball, and are very sound fundamentally on both sides of the ball. Kansas is in the thick of the national championship hunt but Mangino says the important thing for the Jayhawks is just to worry about their next game.

Mangino says they can control the way they prepare, practice and play on Saturday. He says that’s all you can ask for is to take care of your own business.
