The Iowa State Cyclones are ready to kick off their 2012-2013 basketball season. Their goal this year is to make it back to the NCAA Tournament and Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action. Grab all of your home and away seats for every Cyclones game right here at Gold Coast!
The Cyclones have not been predominantly one of the better basketball teams over the years, but with 3rd year head coach Fred Hoiberg, the Cyclones seemed to have found their niche. Hoiberg played for the Cyclones in the 1990’s and went on to be a great shooter in the NBA, playing for the famous Chicago Bulls, as well as the Minnesota Timberwolves. In his first season the Cyclones finished 16-16 after losing four starters in a very good Big 12 Conference.
Last season, Hoiberg took the Cyclones to a 23-11 record and a birth in the NCAA Tournament. In the first round they knocked out Jim Calhoun’s Huskies and then lost to the eventual National Champion Wildcats. Although they only made it to the round of 32, it was still a big accomplishment to the team.
This year it will be difficult for Hoiberg as he lost his star player Royce White to the 2012 NBA Draft. However, the Cyclones have some promising recruits as they grab two players off the Rivals Top 150 Board: Forward Georges Niang and Guard Sherron Dorsey-Walker. Niang and Walker hope to be Hoiberg’s replacement shoes for the loss of White. The Cyclones play their home games at the beautiful Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa. Gold Coast Tickets has the best selection for your entire 2012-2013 college basketball season!
