The Iowa State Cyclones return to Big-12 action on Tuesday night at home against Baylor. The Cyclones are 2-10 in the league race and have lost nine of ten games. They take on a Baylor team that is also struggling, having dropped seven of eight.
ISU coach Greg McDermott says Baylor is very dangerous on the offensive end and difficult to stop when they get rolling. He says better play on offense is a focus. The Cyclones made only 30 percent in Saturday’s loss at home to Kansas State.
McDermott says they also can’t lose sight of the fact that defense has kept them in games where they haven’t played well offensively. He says many of the problems on offense are an issue of confidence, as he says they are getting okay shots, but have been pressing and need to gain some confidence.
Baylor coach Scott Drew says the Bears must slow down the Cyclones’s Craig Brackins. Drew says Brackins has become a more complete player this year both inside and out and plays with a great patience. Baylor will be in search of its first win in Ames. The Bears are 0-7 in Hilton Coliseum.
