Iowa State’s hot shooting continued last night in Ames. The Cyclones scorched the nets with better than 61 percent shooting as they rolled past Tennessee State 84-53. Marquis Gilstrap had 18 points and Craig Brackins added 12 for ISU. Coach Greg McDermott says they are getting better offensively and continue to make the extra pass and get easy baskets.
He says those extra passes are leading to more layups and that is the big difference compared to the last three years. The Cyclones improve to 5-0 on the season. Next up they will take on St. Louis in the Chicago Invitational on Friday night. McDermott says they were good defensively at times and at times were a little flat. He says he told the team they are not yet close to where they can be and need to continue to work.
