Zach Grant "Thanks a lot rick, the Iowa State Cyclones are in the middle of their school record 5th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance.  And they are trying to make sure it doesn't end up like the last one.

Jameel McKay "Last year we were picked to win and everybody expected us to win... this year not everyone expects us to win so I feel like we play better with our backs against the wall."

THE IOWA STATE CYCLONES ARE MORE FOCUSED ON THEIR GOAL THAN EVER

Georges Niang "Our preperations as players, not necessarily as coaches but as players we are more locked in and focused and not taking anyone lightly."

AND THEIR SICK OF HEARING US REMIND THEM OF HOW LAST YEAR ENDED

Monte Morris "I don't wanna talk about the negative, them being an upset Cinderella team were gonna let our game do the talking."

Abdel Nader "Apparently their a carbon copy of us... no but they've got a couple real good guys that can do some special things on the court and I think we've done a good job preparing for them."

AND AS FOR ALL THE NATION PUNDITS PICKING AGAINST THE CYCLONES

Jameel McKay "I mean that's there opinion and thanks to them for the motivation we cant ask for enough of that so kudos to them for giving us motivation."
