    No. 15 Iowa State has three of the Big 12′s best players in guard DeAndre Kane and forwards Melvin Ejim and Georges Niang. That trio combines to average 52.0 points and 19.7 rebounds per game, and when they’re clicking the Cyclones are a difficult team to beat. But Fred Hoiberg’s team isn’t particularly deep and…

  7. After beating No. 7 Baylor, just how good is No. 9 Iowa State?

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:31 PM EDT

    DeAndre Kane

    I listed Deandre Kane No. 3 in my Player of the Year Power Rankings earlier today, which turned out to be really convenient timing as Kane put on a show on Tuesday night.

    Entering Wednesday’s Diamond Head Classic title game, senior guard DeAndre Kane has been one of the key contributors for No. 14 Iowa State.

    After fouling out of No. 21 Iowa State’s 90-88 win at BYU on Wednesday night, senior forward Melvin Ejim directed an obscene gesture towards the crowd in response to some heckling from the student section.

    Iowa State v Ohio State

    With the amount of personnel that the Iowa State Cyclones lost from last season’s NCAA tournament team, most programs would not be considered to once again be in line for a trip to the Big Dance. With some talented additions, led by Marshall transfer DeAndre Kane, joining Fred Hoiberg’s returnees, Iowa State is expected to…
