    16-2 at Hilton this season

    Hilton Magic is back!

    This team went 8-1 at home in conference play, beating every Big 12 school at Hilton except MU. Also winners of their last 7 games at home. You have to go all the way back nearly two months to January 11 for the last loss at Hilton.

    Love having a scary good home court advantage again!

    The best part is that there is still room for improvement. So much better to see ISU win! That last half decade was rough. Hope they can make a hell of a run in the NCAA and B12!

    Re: 16-2 at Hilton this season

    "You ever been to a college basketball game so loud you can't hear your own voice? So loud you can't hear the ref's whistle? So loud you can't hear the game buzzer? There's only one explanation for one of the toughest places to play in the country...Hilton magic. Fear it."

    “Hilton Magic,” the power of the Coliseum faithful to produce unexpected victories, was first recognized by Des Moines Register sportswriter Buck Turnbull. On a Feb. 14, 1989, showdown with the No. 3 Missouri Tigers, the Cyclones conjured up the spirit of the Hilton crowd to produce a stunning 82-75 victory. The following day’s headline read “Hilton Magic Spells ‘Upset’ One More Time.”
    In the article, Turnbull called for more “Hilton Magic” in the Cyclones’ upcoming bout with the Oklahoma State Cowboys, which had pummeled ISU, 102-74, just three weeks earlier. On cue, “Hilton Magic” displayed its powers, as the Cyclones defeated the Cowboys, 90-81, marking a 37-point reversal from the season’s prior meeting.
    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd.
    More than two decades old, the term “Hilton Magic” is still applicable today. This reality was never more apparent than ISU’s school-record 39-game homecourt winning streak that was ended during the 2001-02 season. The streak, which spanned four different basketball seasons, was the second-longest in the nation at the time. In 2003-04, Iowa State went 17-1 in Hilton, recording the second-best single-season home win total in school history. In 2011-12, Iowa State went 16-2 with 2nd year head coach and Iowa State legend, "The Mayor" Fred Hoiberg. The return of Fred and the rebirth of Hilton Magic is a story for the ages.

    First quote is from a friend of mine. He posted that status after the win last night. Second part is from Wikipedia. I added in the last part about this season and Fred.
