As Fennelly explained it, he won the game but lost a dare. A little backstory: Longtime Cyclone fan Roger Underwood, a local businessman, is partial to bow ties. For a while, he'd been needling Fennelly that he should wear one on the Iowa State bench.
"I said, 'If he brings it, I'll wear it to the Iowa game,' " Fennelly said, never expecting Underwood would try to cash in. "He actually had to come in and tie it. I don't know how to tie it."
I've attended a presentation given by Roger Underwood in one of my classes. He's a very successful businessman and he has a great sense of humor.
About the game. If you would have told me that we would shoot something like 30% from the field and hit only 2 three's in this game and still win, I wouldn't have believed you. The ladies played some terrific defense (and combined with some abysmal Hawk shooting) to hold them to only 44 points. If the Hawks could have caught a little bit a fire, this could have been a different ballgame. However, that's just testament to the level of effort the Twister Sisters were giving on defense. Nice win, ladies!
