The Iowa State basketball team is staying in Chicago longer than originally planned. After losing to fifth ranked Duke 86-65 last night the Cyclones were unable to bus back to Ames because of a winter storm. Coach Greg McDermott says the team remains at the hotel and may not even be able to get a practice in.
McDermott says he doesn’t know if they will be able to practice today, but are trying to arrange transportation to get back and get to practice. McDermott says they will try to find something for the players to do. He says they will get out of the hotel and maybe go to a movie and then will watch film of the game last night and of the upcoming game.
Iowa State is scheduled to host North Dakota State on Saturday afternoon and McDermott says there are no plans to postpone that game. He says they plan to get on the road as soon as they can. McDermott says the weather is not good in Chicago right now.
