Dear Cyclone Alley and ISU Student Body,
I want to thank you for your incredible support and enthusiasm Tuesday night at our game versus Oklahoma. You proved again to be the most knowledgeable and vocal student body in the Big 12. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the way you have stuck with this team. It seemed like every time Oklahoma tried to make a run on us, Cyclone Alley and the fans in Hilton turned up the volume and willed this team to victory. That was awesome!
This weekend (Saturday at 5:00 p.m.) I want to invite you to tune into ABC 5 and watch the Cyclones take on Kansas State on the Big 12 game of the week. I encourage you and your fellow students to come out next Wednesday and help us take on Colorado.
As we approach the end of the regular season and prepare for the Big 12 Tournament, I want you to know that our staff and this team continues to work hard, prepare for each game and never quit. I know first hand that great things can be accomplished by staying focused, having detailed preparation, and competing until the final horn blows. We do believe we have some more exciting moments to experience this season. We also want to share the vision of even better things to come in the near future.
Best wishes and Go Cyclones! Greg McDermott Head Basketball Coach
