Cyclone Men's Hoops Optimisitc at Big 12 Media Day

A very young Iowa State men's basketball team that features seven newcomers will try to surprise some people this winter.

The young Cyclones are picked to finish eleventh in the tough Big 12 Conference--but at conference media day in Oklahoma City, Iowa State head coach Greg McDermott told the press he likes his team.

The Cyclones lost more than half of the scoring from a squad that finished last year with a 14 and 18 record while losing ten of its last 11 games.

McDermott says this year's Cyclone team has to learn how to protect its home court.

The Cyclones open the season --Friday November 14th against University of California Davis.
