Hoiberg took over a program rocked by attrition and has molded it into a confident bunch.
Point guard Diante Garrett
has blossomed in Hoiberg's quicker offense, transfer Jake Anderson has become indispensable and freshman Melvin Ejim
appears on the cusp of big things in the Big 12.
But bear in mind that Iowa State has only played five games against teams on their level: Creighton, Northern Iowa, Iowa, California and Virgina - and finished 3-2.
Still, Hoiberg has the Cyclones off to their best start in 16 years.
''I look at those two losses and I think those are games we should have won. But it keeps us going and we're going to keep fighting,'' Hoiberg said. ''Hopefully that gives us a chance on any given night.''
