The Iowa State Cyclones return to Big 12 action at home on Saturday against Oklahoma. I.S.U. is 1-5 in the league race after a home loss to Texas Tech while the Sooners are 2-3 in conference play.
Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg says Oklahoma has won a couple of games and built some confidence and have had a week off to prepare for this game. Hoiberg wants to see the Cyclones get off to a quick start. He says they have to find a way to bring energy and intensity from the
start, and he would love to have the other team have to call a timeout early to regroup, instead of having to do so himself.
Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel says he has a lot of respect for the Cyclones and says they shoot the ball well.
Iowa State is 14-7 overall. The Sooners are 10-9.
