AMES (KWWL) -

Iowa State rode a pair of one-and-done transfers to its first NCAA tournament appearance in seven years.

The formula worked so well that the Cyclones will give it another go in 2012-13.

Iowa State lost perhaps the nation's most versatile player, Royce White, and standout senior guard Chris Allen from the team that went 23-11 before falling to eventual national champion Kentucky in the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Enter senior forward Will Clyburn and point guard Korie Lucious.

Clyburn, a 6-foot-7 forward, led Utah in scoring at 17.1 points per game in 2010-11 before transferring to Iowa State following a coaching change. Lucious, like Allen before him, fell out of favor with Michigan State coach Tom Izzo and decided to spend his final college season in Ames.
