With the next two games at home the Iowa State Cyclones hope they can finally snap a losing streak that is currently at ten games. The Cyclones host Nebraska on Saturday afternoon. It will be the 234th meeting in the series which dates back to 1909 and with the Huskers leaving for the Big Ten it could be their last.
Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg says Nebraska is playing with a lot of confidence and has some momentum. Hoiberg hopes to have Jamie Vanderbeken available on Saturday. He has been sidelined with an ankle injury. He says Nebraska is a big team and getting Vanderbeken back would make it easier to match up.
After Saturday’s game the Cyclones will close out the home schedule next Wednesday night against Colorado. Hoiberg hopes Vanderbeken along with fellow seniors Diante Garrett and Jake Anderson can finish on a positive note. He says they all deserve a great sendoff for what they have done as Cyclones.
Iowa State is 1-12 in the Big 12 and 14-14 overall.
