CORY'S COOL. Iowa State freshman Cory Johnson did not play against Baylor Saturday, just the second time this season he failed to log any minutes.
Coach Greg McDermott said the game's matchups favored the Cyclones' other big men. Johnson has never publicly pouted about a lack of playing time or down statistics.
"This year is just a huge learning year for me," said the 6-7 forward from Duluth, Minn. "Next year, I want to be a lot stronger so I can push some dudes around. I want to be a guy who can create space for himself. There's times where I'll be there for the rebound, and the guy will just out-jump me."
