Iowa State coach Greg McDermott wants to see the Cyclones put forth more effort on the glass when they take on the Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday night. The Cyclones have dropped three straight games and McDermott says a lack of rebounding has been a big part of it.
McDermott says they are giving up far too many second chance opportunities and that’s why they had trouble against U.N.I and Cal.
Iowa State forward Craig Brackins says it is more a lack of effort than a lack of toughness. Brackins says they are not going to let someone push them around, he says they just need to play harder. He says when you play harder you look tougher because you are outworking the other team.
Brackins says they need more effort on defense, he says it’s a matter of them going out and doing it.
Iowa State is 6-3.
