Bringing back the magic

Royce White vs. OSU

Despite being picked eighth in the 10-team preseason Big 12 Conference rankings, the Iowa State men's basketball team currently sits at fourth as league play nears the halfway mark. Sophomore Royce White (pictured) has earned Big 12 Rookie of the Week honors twice this season, and recorded the fourth triple-double (points, rebounds, assists) in school history during ISU's Jan. 7 win at Texas A&M. The Cyclones return to Hilton Coliseum for a two-game home stand against long-time conference foes No. 5 Kansas (Jan. 28, 1 p.m.) and No. 22 Kansas State (Jan. 31, 8 p.m.). The KU game is sold out, but a two-for-one ticket ($25) promotion for the Kansas State game is available through Jan. 30. Photo courtesy of ISU Athletics Communications.
