    Chicago Tournament Next Year

    Don't know if this has been posted yet, but Iowa State will be playing in the Chicago Invitational next year with St. Louis, Northwestern, & Notre Dame.

    It's about half way through this article, under "Did you hear"

    When I first heard that we were recruiting the Chicago area I was very leery. I didn't think that a Big 12 team - one that has been struggling in recent years - could outrecruit Big 10 schools for top Chicagoland talent. Well, Coach Robinson and the staff have proven me wrong and I am VERY happy about that.

    Participating in this tournament is great news.

    Johnny Orr seemed to recruit Detroit and Chicago quite well, which is Big 10 country...Ronnie Harris, Barry Stevens, Jeff Grayer, Vic Alexander, just to name a few.

    I'm just happy we got invited to a tournament, instead of being forced to just host a cupcake tournament again next year.

    That is a decent list of teams. They aren't top 25 but they also aren't nobodies.

    ND is certainly a top 25 team, if not top 10.

    Yeah - excited about that too. I like the lineup. Will be getting a hotel as soon as we can book out that far. :)

    Oops. I knew they had a player that was getting some press but I didn't know they were a good team (top 25).

    The transition from FB season to BB season is tough, trust me I know. I struggle with it too.

    Is St Louis still coached by Majerus?
