One thing is on our mind this Spring Break week: March Madness!
The Iowa State men’s basketball team has done it again. Saturday night in Kansas City, the Cyclones won their third Big 12 tournament title in the past four years, making 2017 tournament Most Outstanding Player Monte Morris the winningest individual in Cyclone history and the all-time Big 12 tourney career steals leader.
Last night, we learned that the Cyclones are Milwaukee bound as the No. 5 seed in the NCAA tournament’s Midwest Region. They will take on No. 12 Nevada Thursday night in the late game at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
The Alumni Association and Athletics Department are currently working together to coordinate fan activities in Milwaukee, but in the meantime just sit back and enjoy this video from Selection Sunday at Hilton Coliseum and get all the information you need about tickets and games on cyclones.com’s NCAA tournament central website.
Even if you can’t travel to Milwaukee to cheer on the team in person, the Alumni Association will connect Cyclones everywhere in the spirit of tourney time with gamewatches (stay tuned to our online events calendar for details) and our Cyclones Everywhere Bracket Challenge.
The Cyclone women didn’t win their Big 12 tourney, but they have been on a serious roll and currently sit firmly on the NCAA tournament bubble. ISU finds out its fate tonight as ESPN airs Selection Monday at 6 p.m. CT. Tune in to find out what’s next. And we’ll keep you posted, too.
