Cyclones Need Better Shooting to Top Kansas

AMES Kansas Coach Bill Self wanted to talk up his team's defense, but a "but" lurked in his postgame comments.

That was slightly more than two weeks ago when the No. 7 Jayhawks rolled into Ames and beat Iowa State, 77-70.

"Let's just call it: they missed looks," Self said, explaining. "I'd like to say we guarded them better, but they missed some open looks."

They missed to the tune of 4 of 25 from 3-point range and don't expect a low-percentage repeat tonight when the Cyclones take the floor against Kansas at Allen Fieldhouse.

"The way we shot that game is probably not going to happen again," said ISU forward Georges Niang, who missed all nine of his 3-point attempts in the previous matchup but is 8 of 13 from distaCyclnce since.

Better not. The Cyclones face enough of a K2-like climb after the Jayhawks outebounded them by 17 and have won 17 of the most recent 18 meetings.

"I feel like we're going to play with a chip on our shoulder," said ISU freshman guard Monte Morris. "There's not a better feeling than going somewhere and stunning their crowd."
