Staiger Will Return To Iowa State


AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa State coach Greg McDermott says guard Lucca Staiger will return next season.

Staiger had recently told McDermott that he was mulling over whether to remain with the Cyclones or pursue opportunities in his native Germany.

McDermott says Staiger called him Thursday to say he'll return next fall.

Staiger will play with junior and national teams in Germany this summer.

Staiger, who will be a junior next year, averaged 8.2 points and shot 38.5 percent from 3-point range last season for the Cyclones.
