Wrestling “I’m outraged by the International Olympic Committee’s arbitrary decision to drop wrestling from the Olympic Games. Wrestling is one of the oldest Olympic sports, dating to the games of the ancient Greeks. Iowans are proud of our state’s long tradition of wrestling excellence – from Frank Gotch to Dan Gable to Cael Sanderson – and the IOC’s decision deals a major blow to the sport itself.”

Ever since he was 8 years old, Kyven Gadson has dreamed of becoming an Olympic gold medalist. But that dream could come crashing down in the wake of the International Olympic Committee’s pro-

posal to drop wrestling as an Olympic sport, which sparked national buzz when it was announced Tuesday. If ratified, wrestling would be no longer be an Olympic sport starting in the 2020 games. “We’re definitely not happy about it,” Gadson said. “I’m just trying to find ways that [I] can have a voice in it.” Gadson, a 197-pound redshirt sophomore at Iowa State, said his original goal was to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de

Janeiro. However, the possibility of not having that fallback option of 2020 increases the pressure a bit. “You’ve got to point toward 2016 at this time,” said ISU coach Kevin Jackson. “It affects us, but it doesn’t affect us immediately. There’s some things that we have to do as a country, and there’s some hoops that we have to jump through. “As a wrestling community, as a wrestling person, there’s no way we’re giving up on this thing, because we

know we’re in the right as far as wrestling’s inclusion in the Olympic Games.” The proposal comes at the expense of the rich history Iowa State has in the sport: Six former ISU wrestlers have won

Unlike most of his colleagues who spent the State of the Union in Washington D.C., one cabinet member opted for visiting Iowa State. U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu visited with members of the ISU community Tuesday to discuss climate change and the challenges facing the Department of Energy. “I’m the designated person who is supposed to go away to some undisclosed bunker,” Chu said. “Rather than go to some undisclosed bunker I decided to come here.” On Feb. 1, Chu announced that he would not serve a second term as Secretary of Energy under President Barack Obama. Chu assumed office in early 2009 and plans to maintain his office until a replacement is found. Prior to becoming the Secretary of Energy, Chu won a Nobel Prize in Physics for his research developing a tech-

nique to isolate single atoms and molecules at low temperatures. A challenge scientists face in handling climate change is in understanding the nature of climate itself. “We do not understand what happens in detail over a 10- or 20year period in climate. It’s very, very complicated stuff,” Chu said. “On a short time scale, we don’t have the predictive power we do on a longer time scale; on a half-a-century to a century time scale, it gets pretty simple.” Throughout his presentation, Chu presented several graphs that show a trend toward increases in the surface temperature of the earth in previous years. When asked how he deals with climate deniers, Chu said he becomes a scientist and sticks to the data. “This is more of a smoking gun,”

Olympic gold medals while 17 former wrestlers and coaches have competed or coached in the Olympic Games. As one of the six Olympic gold medalists that Iowa State has produced, Jackson went on to serve as head coach of Team USA in the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games before taking his current post as the ISU wrestling coach. The International Olympic Committee was reportedly planning on cutting the modern pentathlon but instead opted to cut freestyle, GrecoRoman and women’s wrestling on the basis of global participation and popularity. “It’s one of the greatest injustices ever perpetrated by the Olympic committee,” said former USA Wrestling coach Bobby Douglas, who coached at Iowa State from 1992 to 2006. “It’s all driven by money, greed and corruption.” One of the criteria the IOC had used to justify its decision was television ratings, which was questioned in its ability to accurately gauge popularity of a sport. “Now, you know like I know that we’re going to watch anything that NBC puts on,” Jackson said. “If they put

on two guys rolling marbles, we’re going to watch that if a gold medal’s on it. So that’s NBC’s job to put on proper programming.” However, the IOC is set to vote on whether or not to officially drop wrestling in May with a final decision to be made in September. “It’s not final,” said Ed Banach, who won a gold medal in the 1984 Olympic Games. “We’ll find out for sure at that time, but you’ve got to think ... everybody wrestles. “The pushback that the IOC is going to receive based upon the support for wrestling internationally, they’re going to be overwhelmed.”

A storied history Wrestling was one of the founding sports of the ancient Olympic games, dating back to ancient times. When the modern era of the Olympic games began in 1896, wrestling was one of nine sports on the bill. “One of the final events that they did was wrestle to determine the winner of the first Olympic games,” Banach said. “It was integral to the Olympic movement, so why would you take wrestling out?” The sport has since progressed in the Olympics, re-

Although he is not attending the State of the Union address, Vemuri believes some of the ideas

maining intact as a part of international competition until the announcement Tuesday. “America was targeted,” Douglas said. “One of the reasons it’s so easy to get rid of wrestling is because of the success that America has had in the program.” The United States has won 125 medals total in freestyle, Greco-Roman and women’s wrestling combined — more than any other country. America is second in gold medals with 50 to the former Soviet Union, which has 62. America’s most recent medalists include Clarissa Chun (bronze in women’s 48 kilograms), Coleman Scott (bronze at 60), Jordan Burroughs (gold at 74) and former Cyclone Jake Varner (gold at 96). “For the IOC to drop wrestling, yeah it makes a splash,” Banach said. “But I think they’re going to regret that decision, and they’re going to make a change here in the next couple months.”

Holding onto the dream As a member of the diversity committee for USA Wrestling, Douglas was irate at the IOC’s announcement. “A lot of minority kids

Chu expressed will make an appearance. “Secretary Chu’s speech might have served as a short preview of what the president will say in his speech tonight regarding climate change and energy policy,” Vemuri said. “Those who attended this afternoon might see some continuity between what the secretary said and what the president will say.”

go to school because they’re driven by the Olympic dream,” Douglas said. “They want to have the chance like the rest of the world to compete in the Olympic Games — that’s huge for the wrestling community.” Had it not been for the Olympic dream, Douglas said wrestling would not have grown as a collegiate sport in America. “I came here expecting to be a national champ and then go on to win my Olympic gold medal,” Gadson said. When asked about the impact the Tuesday decision from the committee would have on collegiate wrestling, Jackson said the only real repercussions is the inability to achieve that Olympic dream. “It’s almost a shame that it pushes our athletes to use their ability in sports like MMA,” Jackson said. “It forces them to possibly take their skills that they harnessed for 20 years and to move in that direction. I find that very disappointing.” As for Gadson, all he will have to do is wait and see. “We don’t have a major leagues or anything like that,” Gadson said. “For us wrestlers, we don’t have anything after college. So it’s kind of crazy that it could be taken away from us.”

To end his lecture, Chu recited an excerpt from Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot,” a documentary emphasizing the smallness of the Earth compared to the universe. “I think we have a moral responsibility,” Chu said. “The most innocent victims in climate change are the poorest who never contribute anything to this and those yet to be born.”

At the same time, Obama called for legislators to work together for the good of the nation, saying Americans “expect us to put the nation’s interests before party.” “They do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can,” he said, “for they know that America moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all.” It was the president’s fourth State of the Union address and seventh speech to a joint sitting of Congress,

and analysts considered it a crucial moment for setting the tone for the political dialogue after four years of partisan division and congressional dysfunction. With the government facing deep spending cuts mandated by a previous agreement between Obama and Congress to raise the federal debt ceiling, Obama renewed his call for a comprehensive deficit-reduction plan that includes new tax revenue coupled with spending cuts. Taking aim at the bitter partisanship of his first term, Obama said “let’s set party interests aside, and work to pass a budget that replaces reckless cuts with smart savings and wise investments in our future.

This is the kind of visual appeal that works well to draw in students.” Magee’s use of uncommon materials for his sculptures was acquired through his education. While pursuing his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas and his Master of Fine Arts at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Ill., he was taught to use commonplace items for his art. He would venture to places like junkyards, which allowed him to get a variety of materials for a cheap price, which in turn allowed him to create large pieces of artwork. “I knew I wanted to be an artist as a college undergrad. When I started having success with my projects and was getting reactions, it encouraged me to elicit reactions from people through my artwork,” Magee said. “I get excited about others seeing my stuff.” However, Magee said he knows his work is not for everyone. The pieces are often about controversial subjects like religion and politics. “All I provide is the material, the image or

“And let’s do it without the brinksmanship that stresses consumers and scares off investors,” he continued to applause, mainly from Democrats. “The greatest nation on Earth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crisis to the next. “We can’t do it.

sculpture and the title. The rest is completely up to the viewer to interpret,” Magee said. Girard described the process of looking at Magee’s work as one in which the viewer has to step back to see the piece from a distance, get up close to see what it is made of, then step back again to connect the meaning. An example of this would be Magee’s “Stairway to Heaven.” “Stairway to Heaven” is a three-dimensional, 300-pound structure made of cartons from cigarettes that were personally smoked by Magee himself. “For someone who smokes, they would definitely get that this could be a stairway to death or the journey to quitting, but even people with no knowledge about smoking will still understand the message, to an extent,” Magee said. “I believe all of my pieces are used with materials that our culture and society are saturated with, like the cigarette cartons, for example.” He explained that his pieces are intended to reveal an initial reaction and hold the viewer’s attention to make a personal connection. “Andy is very conversational, and he likes his art to be conversational as well,” Girard said. “He doesn’t want to tell you exactly what he was thinking. He wants you to think for yourself

about what you’re looking at, and that’s a really important part of visual literacy.” Having been an artist for a large part of his life, Magee also has a very strong opinion on art in relation to society in today’s day and age. He said he believes artists are supposed to create work to challenge and accost society. He said he feels artists have allowed themselves to fall out of the public’s interest. “The term art is now too broad. Years ago, if you were to ask any random person on the street who their favorite artist was, they would say someone like Michelangelo, Leonardo DaVinci

or Pablo Picasso,” Magee said. “Now, if you were to ask anyone on the street who their favorite artist is, someone like Beyonce would be their answer.” Magee said he believes artists can reveal truths and shape ideas if people engage with it. It’s the reason he strives for art that is engaging. “It’s unconventional and challenging,” Magee said about his work. “Money may not be a part of the life, and you may work 24 hours a day. If, after all of that, you are still passionate, then it’s what you’re meant to do. Life is a journey; you have to pursue what you love.”

Focus more on governing, not campaigning The election of 2012 was hardly over and the president barely inaugurated when we began hearing about the 2016 contest. In the past three months, many news outlets have teased readers with a multitude of stories about politicians mulling over or planning for the next, distant round of electioneering. In September 2012, the New York Times profiled high-profile Democrats at the Democratic National Convention: “Looking Past November for a Preview of 2016.” On Nov. 22, 2012 they asked, “Jeb Bush in 2016?” But don’t worry. After asking such a leaping question, they reassured themselves: “Not Too Early for Chatter.” Other outlets indulge the same prospecting. Shortly after President Obama’s second inauguration, the Associated Press reported that Vice President “Biden meets with Democrats, stoking 2016 chatter.” Looking further into the future, NPR said: “Forget 2016. The Pivotal Year In Politics May Be 2020.” A few days later, as Republicans met for a winter convention, the Washington Post wrote: “Republicans look to their bench for 2016.” Other examples abound. All those, with only a Google search. The clamoring got even harder to ignore when longtime Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin announced he would not run for reelection in 2014. After that news, Politico argued: “Tom Harkin’s successor to be a power player.” While the Washington Post wrote, “Harkin retirement presents GOP with and opportunity and a test,” the Quad-City Times, in Davenport, said: “Harkin believes Democrats can keep U.S. Senate seat in 2014.” Now, “Iowa’s Braley to run for hotly contested Senate seat.” That, in turn, triggered speculation about Braley’s seat: “Former Iowa House speaker Murphy eyes Braley seat,” the Sioux City Journal said. One Cedar Rapids TV station reported, “Democrats Approach [State Senator] Liz Mathis About Congressional Run.” All this deserves some perspective. The election for Harkin’s seat is nearly two years away, the presidential election is nearly four. Even allowing half of that time to be devoted to campaigning, we should begin to watch the race for Harkin’s seat a year from now, and for the presidency, two years from now. Until then, the politicians running for such offices — who invariably currently hold offices of the public trust — should concentrate on governing. Imagine the repercussions you would face if you, on the clock, using time your boss is paying you for, gave most of your attention to searching for other employment. Our guess is that your boss would not be very happy. And We, the People, are the bosses of the president and members of Congress. At the very least,candidates need time to muster the qualifications. Campaigning takes away from that. As essential as it is to win elections and connect with voters, that’s not the secret ingredient to doing politics well. The key ingredient is an ability to connect with one’s peers — the other members of Congress, for example. Savor the moment. While campaigning should be political (as opposed to rallies for media whores), the campaign season is just like any other season: At other times of the year or cycle, other things are going on. Give governing a chance.

Evolution is not atheism T

he theory of evolution carries a lot of baggage. While there were a few individuals to suggest some form of evolution was at work long before Charles Darwin, it was only with his “On the Origin of Species” that evolution as a scientific theory received much attention. Since its inception, the work of Darwin, and the work all of the evolutionary biologists to come after him, has been attacked by scientists and nonscientists alike. There are many reasons why the theory of evolution has been questioned, and some of them are entirely appropriate. These deserved skepticisms arise from the sheer weight of Darwin’s conclusions. In any scientific field, a theory as overarching and as revolutionary as evolution is to biology needs to be very carefully looked over for any potential flaws. Some reasons for questioning and even outright denying the theory of evolution, however, are not appropriate skepticism, but rather are arguments made from ignorance and fear. These arguments tend to arise from the misconception that Darwin’s work and the theory of evolution claim that there is no God. I have read “On the Origin of Species,” and this is not true. At its core, the theory of evolution as proposed by Darwin holds two main principles.. First, there exists descent with modification. This does not mean that a monkey can turn into a human. This means that in every generation, there is the chance of the offspring being slightly

different than their parents genetically. This can occur through small random mutations in DNA or through a combination of parents’ DNA that produces something a little different. Second, there exists natural selection. This means that the organisms that are best able to survive and reproduce will have a better chance to pass on their genetics to offspring. This is not absolute; being more fit only provides a better chance of survival and reproduction. These two principles, along with a large amount of time, combine to form the mechanism we think of as evolution. They do not claim that life was not created by a divine being. Some ignore this and refuse to believe in evolution on religious grounds. This attitude is well and good for an individual — that is what beliefs are — but it can become detrimental when falsehoods are used against this theory. Examples abound, but some notable cases are claims that suggest Darwin himself did not believe in the theory of evolution. One of the longest-running attacks on evolution is the

Lent can be good for everyone O

ne of the most holy seasons of the year starts Wednesday: Lent. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the 40 days to prepare Christians for the celebration for the Resurrection of Christ (Easter). Prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are the three spiritual pillars of Lent (although, they’re meant for the entire year). These great spiritual practices are important for growth as Christians. I suspect that these same practices (with some modifications, of course) are good for all people – whether they are Catholic, Atheist, Muslim, male, female, gay, straight, old, young, rich, poor – it really doesn’t matter who you are or what you believe. Let me explain. Almsgiving is the practice of doing sincere acts of charity. I’m convinced that good begets good. Doing something good for someone

claim that Darwin explicitly states in “On the Origin of Species” that evolution is “absurd.” This stems from a few sentences in which Darwin recognizes how crazy it sounds to say that the eye, which is so perfect, was created by natural selection. However, Darwin goes on to say that in the face of the existence of inherited variation in eyes, and the existence of a use for those variations, the idea of natural selection forming our eye doesn’t sound crazy after all. even recognizes this, and denotes the “doubtful Darwin” argument as one Christians should not use. Another argument against evolution is that Darwin realized he had been foolish to question God and repented on his deathbed, denouncing his work. This story comes from Elizabeth Cotton, known as Lady Hope, who claimed she spoke with Darwin shortly before his death. However, three of Darwin’s children publicly rebutted Lady Hope, claiming the story was false. The reasons for these attacks on evolution are simply misguided. No one needs to feel that their beliefs are being attacked by evolution. The theory of evolution is not a denouncement of God. It is simply an attempt to explain a small part of how the world works.

else – whether that’s giving money to the soup kitchen, doing your roommate’s dishes, or holding the door open for that one extra person – can only make the world better. The person helped thinks, “Gee, there’s still good in the world.” And let’s be honest, you’ll feel good about it, too. Imagine if everyone just did one extra, kind thing, said one more kind word each and every day. Maybe that person who feels crappy has a better day – maybe they will do something for someone else, and it continues on. Good begets good. What about fasting? Just reading statistics about obesity problems in the United States is enough proof we could all use a little fasting.

no to three pieces of cake because it’s there or you’re bored. Saying no to pornography makes it easier to fully love your significant other. Keeping the headphones out of your ears while walking to class every Tuesday makes it easier to have a sincere conversation with your best friend. Saying no to little things makes it easier to say no to things that are bad for us and yes to better things. Prayer is harder. As a Catholic, I believe that daily, regular prayer brings me closer to my Eternal Father, my Creator. It also makes me realize that there is something so much bigger than myself. There is some objective truth to this. Go stand in the middle of New York City, on top of Mount Everest, or next to the Statue of Liberty, and tell me that you are the center and focus of the universe.

that you have your head checked. Reflecting on this (prayer, to some) forces us to examine what we are in relation to the rest of the universe. Consciously considering this place in creation helps us to be more aware of how our actions (or lack thereof) affect others. I am strongly convinced that these practices of almsgiving, fasting, and prayer can make us better humans – no matter how we view the world. They move us to help our fellow men and women, teach us to have some self-control through the decisions we make, and make us aware of ourselves in a large universe. This is good for all humans every day of the year – not just during Lent. But if you are celebrating it this year, have a blessed Lent!

Valentine’s Day

‘Heart-y’ and sweet treats By Lindsay MacNab AmesEats Flavors writer Still looking for a Valentine’s Day gift to impress the special someone in your life? If you have an artsy and creative side, a limited amount of time and a small budget, these gifts are perfect for you. Food bouquets are simple to make and are a cute way to win over that special someone.

Mini Pie Pop Hearts You need: ■■ Your favorite pie dough ■■ Cherry or strawberry jam/ jelly/pie filling ■■ 2 tablespoons white sugar

■■ ■■ ■■ ■■

1 large egg Oven-safe lollipop sticks Flour (for rolling dough) Heart-shaped cookie cutter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll the dough until smooth and thin, approximately 1/4-inch thick. Use the cookie cutter to cut out dough hearts. Combine leftover dough scraps and repeat. In the center of each heart (only use half of the total hearts), place a small scoop of the filling of your choice. Place a stick near the bottom of each heart and press down gently, securing the stick in the dough. Beat the egg and, using a pastry brush, run the egg wash along the outline of each heart. Place the other heart on top of the one that contains filling. Pinch the edges together using a fork. Lightly brush the top of the pie pops with the egg wash and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar. Bake for 20-30 minutes until crispy and golden brown. For an added touch, tie a small ribbon bow on each pie pop stick. Arrange into a bouquet.

A Valentine’s Day of dark chocolate and red wine can be romantic as well as healthy. One to two glasses of red wine per day has cardiovascular benefits due to a slight increase in HDL (good) cholesterol. Those who drink wine in moderation, on average, live longer, according a 2000 article published in the Annual Review of Nutrition. Cocoa intake may reduce cardiovascular disease risk due to a combination of improved antioxidants and vasodilation of blood vessels, according to an article published in 2008 by The Nutrition Reviews.

These two athletic trainers will be attending the state of Iowa wrestling tournament at Wells Fargo Arena in downtown Des Moines from Wednesday morning through Saturday night.

ISU trainers help at Wells Fargo By Beau Berkley Daily correspondent Every year, just before the snow melts and winter becomes a cold and distant memory, an event takes place in the heart of Iowa to captivate the state for four days. The Iowa state wrestling meet is arguably the pinnacle of the athletic careers of hundreds of high school wrestlers. Emotion and pressure sit in the air of Wells Fargo Arena as wrestlers from across the state stride to the center of the mat, ready for glory. However, wrestlers are not the only people on the mat experiencing pressure. Beyond the coaches and the wrestlers, there will be trainers. Look closer, and some of them might be recognizable. This year marks the 42nd year that ISU students studying athletic training will make the trip to Des Moines and serve as volunteer athletic trainers on the mats. “Nose bleeds, cuts to the face or

limbs, dislocations, knee injuries, concussions — these are all things we as athletic trainers will take care of,” said Kayla Kleihauer, a coordinator for the trainers. “It’s all about being prepared.” Kleihauer has been at the meet the past four years, but this will be her first visit as a coordinator, bringing along 38 students. The state wrestling tournament in Iowa is known for its sellout crowd, high-intensity environment and a raucous fan base full of passionate communities. “It’s almost like a funnel. There are whole communities on either side of you cheering for their wrestler,” Kleihauer said. “A lot of times you can’t hear yourself think, or even communicate with the other trainers.” For Eric Bornholdt and Billy Lutz, both juniors in athletic training, this is their second time working the event. “Last year, I went for the first time not really knowing what to expect,” Bornholdt said. “Once I got out there I realized how intense and

of the Iowa High School Athletic Association. “We’re looking for qualified people and adequate numbers of trainers to cover the needs of the competitors. We get both of those things from Iowa State.” The university also benefits from this partnership. “It’s definitely a huge draw for prospective students that we get to go to these big events,” Kleihauer said. “It’s something that we offer that Iowa or the University of Northern Iowa can’t.” Later this year, the trainers will work at the Drake Relays and the NCAA wrestling tournament that will also be held in Wells Fargo Arena. This time around, Lutz and Bornholdt are more prepared for the environment. “Things do settle down and you start to focus on what you need to do,” Bornholdt said. “As long as you do your job, it will be OK.” The state wrestling meet kicks off Wednesday morning and continues into the weekend through Saturday night.

Cyclones uncertain about Kabongo’s return to Longhorns’ offense


By Alex.Halsted

SPORT: Wrestling DEFINITION: Greco-Roman wrestling is a form of wrestling that forbids holds, which is its biggest difference from freestyle wrestling. USE: Greco-Roman wrestling was part of the first Olympic Games in 1896.

crazy things were and it was a little overwhelming.” Lutz’s feelings were no different. “It’s definitely an experience,” Lutz said. “You have thousands of people watching you do your job and such a small time frame to get them back on the mat.” As if thousands of screaming, red-faced strangers are not enough to rattle the nerves of the trainers, they must also work against the clock. When a wrestler comes off the mat for an injury, the trainers have a small 90-second window in which they must not only assess the injury, but also treat it. In case the trainers have trouble treating an injury, there is a certified athletic trainer on hand. ISU students studying athletic training have been volunteering at the meet for the past 42 years. “It’s the commitment from the Iowa State athletic training program and their dedication and desire to a part of the meet. That’s what keeps this relationship going,” said Alan Beste, assistant executive director

Nobody is quite certain what to expect. After serving a 23-game suspension imposed by the NCAA, Texas guard Myck Kabongo will be back in action for the first time when Iowa State arrives in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday for a second meeting. “I’m not sure what to expect right now,” said ISU coach Fred Hoiberg.

“We can watch all the film we want of their recent games, but it might just be a completely different team with Kabango out there running the show.” The only known fact for the Cyclones (16-7, 6-4 Big 12) is that Kabongo will make the Longhorns (10-13, 2-8) a different team. There is also a common expectation that Texas may be a bit faster and play more up-tempo.

>>KABONGO.p6 The players share the same uncertainty as their coach. “I have no idea,” said ISU guard Chris Babb of what he expects to see. “He hasn’t played all season, so I don’t know what he worked on during the off-season, what different type of game he’s going to have.” Kabongo was suspended by the NCAA for the entire season for having interaction with an agent. He and the Longhorns appealed the suspension, and it was later reduced to 23 games, bringing the 6-foot-1, 180-pound guard back to action for the first time Wednesday. Hoiberg said the team will focus on film of the Longhorns from last season since all film from this season is obsolete. The Cyclones saw Kabongo firsthand three times during the 2011-12 season — including one game when the two teams met in the the Big 12 tournament — and he averaged 10.3 points and four assists per game against them. So far this season, after finishing 9-9 in the Big 12 last season, the Longhorns find themselves near the bottom of the conference with the absence of their leader. “It’s tough when you don’t have your leader out there and when you don’t have the player that drives the engine,” Hoiberg said when asked if it’s weird seeing Texas near the bottom of the Big 12 standings. “That’s what they get back on Wednesday, so I anticipate it’ll be a completely different team.” The Cyclones are coming off a loss to No. 13 Kansas State on Saturday when they turned the ball over 20 times. The goal for Wednesday is to put more emphasis on limiting turnovers. So far this season, Iowa State is 5-1 following losses, having only lost back-to-back games in November 2012 when it lost to two ranked opponents in Las Vegas against Cincinnati and UNLV. The team has struggled on the road in Big 12 play, going 1-4.

Iowa State 16-7, 6-4 Big 12



10-13, 2-8 Big 12 Where: Erwin Center in Austin, Texas When: 7 p.m. Wednesday Media coverage: Big 12 Network (TV on ABC), Cyclone Radio Network (Radio), (coverage) Notes: When Iowa State played Texas at Hilton Coliseum earlier this season it won 8262. In the win, ISU forward Georges Niang led the Cyclones with 18 points while guard Will Clyburn added 16. The Cyclones are just 1-9 in road games against the Longhorns in Austin, Texas. The lone win came during the 2004-05 season when Iowa State won 92-80 in overtime. The Big 12 currently remains tight as the top three teams have three losses in league play with the next three teams having four losses.

“All the odds are against you — you have 10,000 to 12,000 fans cheering against you — you don’t get many calls,” said ISU forward Georges Niang of the road atmosphere. “To play a perfect game is how you get wins.” In each of the Cyclones’ four Big 12 losses so far this season, they have responded in their next game with a victory. Despite the uncertainty of what Texas has to offer, Iowa State hopes that trend continues on Wednesday. “For the most part, this team has responded after tough losses,” Hoiberg said. “The big thing for us is taking care of ourselves. “If we worry about ourselves and go out and make the necessary adjustments, we’re going to be fine.”
