Iowa State is looking to build on its big win over Kansas over the weekend.
This is a natural letdown spot on the road though..and in conference.
Texas’ season looks lost at this point. They have just not had the guard play to compete in the B12.
Iowa State Cyclones
The Cyclones have been tough to figure out this season. This is a good team. They still fill it up but are just not as consistent.
Monte Morris is though. On this team he is the leading scorer while still being the distributor and almost never turning it over. He is also second on the team in rebounding so he is pretty much doing it all.
Deonte Burton is one of the toughest guys to guard in America. He is also super productive, averaging 14 and 7 in less than 30 minutes per game. If he was better with the ball he would be an all conference consideration.
The Cyclones are a short team this season with no player over 6’8″ receiving regular minutes. That pretty much means they are not able to make many adjustments to their game.
What it also means is that they are going to be beholden to their shooters. At Kansas they made 18 of 34 threes – more than 50%. They are a good shooting team but not usually that good.
This team should not be bothers by HAVOC at all. They might have trouble matching up with Texas in the halfcourt though. If Texas can use their size appropriately.
This is not a good team but they are probably better than their record. They have a lot of close losses. Games where good guard play could certainly have made the difference.
Jarrett Allen was a top recruit and you can see why. He is long with some skill and if he develops properly maybe he is a bit like Myles Turner light.
You would like him to stay another year but the NBA might come calling. He has been thrust into the leading scorer role with the suspension of Tevin Mack. That is not ideal because he can’t create his own shot.
The Longhorns have a few players who can but the problem is they do not go through the basket all that often. Kerwin Roach and Andrew Jones don’t really scare folks.
Texas is good enough to stymie the Cyclones, especially if they take them too lightly off their big win.

Free Iowa State Cyclones vs. Texas Longhorns NCAAB Prediction:
I like the Cyclones to be able to dominate on the perimeter and not get too beat up inside.
Even if they are a little off emotionally, Morris can get them into the right stuff.
