steve prohm and the cyclones have a signature win. made a statement too. for the first time since the eisenhower administration, iowa state takes down the nation's #1. oklahoma arrived in ames the same day it was voted unanimously the top ranked team. georges niang scores 22 points, and monte morris hit the go ahead
shot at crunch time. that put isu up 77-75. then a smart inbounds play call
technical on oklahoma. iowa state wins, 82-77. no one questions the court-storming at hilton. this was a big night. cyclones hit the road saturday, they'll
play the big 12's worst team, tcu, then it's kansas on another big monday in ames. welcome to the hoops hotbed of iowa. where #1 teams go to die. or at least, to lose. #1 ranking then dies. in november, the uni panthers scored a big upset that appears even more unlikely now that the panthers are struggling.
carolina at the mcleod center. tar heel all-american marcus paige made the trip, but did not play. just before the rose bowl, the iowa hawkeyes beat #1 michigan state at carver-hawkeye arena. it marked the first time in history the hawkeyes had defeated a top ranked team
at home. michigan state played without all- american denzel valentine, but when valentine returned, iowa also won in east lansing. and of course, last night, iowa state completed the rare trifecta, turning back oklahoma. interestingly, it's possible the cyclones could host #1 teams on back to back mondays. if kansas doesn't lose, the jayhawks should be #1 or #2. they've been warned. the hawkeyes have moved to the top of the big ten conference. first place tie with indiana, but the hawks have played a tougher schedule. iowa swept the michigans last week. first michigan state, then michigan. now iowa plays rutgers, a team that lost to purdue last night
thursday night, five and oh meets oh and five. running back tyler brown says he's leaving iowa state. brown started two games before mike warren emerged as the big 12's rookie of the year. warren was so good, it made one wonder why brown started in the first place. next on the news at nine... snowfall today... caused headaches
snowfall she's always stood strong... ...to get the job done. hillary clinton. she stood up to china... ...and spoke out on women's rights... ...went toe to toe with russia on human rights. the drug and insurance companies spent millions against her... ...but hillary didn't quit until eight million children got health care. i've never been called a quitter and i won't quit on you. she's got what it takes to do the toughest job in the world.
