Looking to begin a new home winning streak, the Tigers faced the Iowa State Cyclones on Wednesday Feb. 10. The game was a closer match-up than some predicted, but Tiger players knew to expect a tough opponent.
"They didn't surprise us; Iowa State is a really good team. Their record doesn't show how good they are, especially the conference they played everyone tough but Baylor. They are a really good team so they didn't surprise us, we knew that Brackett and Garrett are pros and they are a really well coached team, " sophomore guard Kim English said.
Despite sturggling early, strong second half play allowed the Tigers to pull ahead and end the game with a 65-56 lead. The team will face Baylor on Saturday.
