    Cyclone Great Will Have Jersey Retired

    AMES, Iowa - Angie Welle, the most decorated player in Iowa State women's basketball history, will be honored Feb. 20 during the Cyclones' 7 p.m. game vs. Missouri. The ceremony will unveil just the fourth retired women's basketball jersey to hang from the rafters of Hilton Coliseum, joining those of Megan Taylor (1998-2001), Jayme Olson (1995-98) and Tonya Burns (1982-85).

    "When [athletics director] Jamie Pollard called me, it brought back so many memories," Welle said. "It's such a huge honor and it makes me proud of what we did while I was there."

    Re: Cyclone Great Will Have Jersey Retired

    Great! Thought she deserved to be up there eventually. I remember my (and hers too) freshman year I had a class with her, had no idea who she was but this big tall girl walks in and sits in the row right in front of me. My initial thought was "damn she's tall, hope she plays basketball!" Well first women's game I went to she was starting center.

    Well deserved. She is the benchmark for all future ISU post players. She improved every year she played.

    Re: Cyclone Great Will Have Jersey Retired

    This is a well deserved recognition. I not only appreciated her talent on the court, I also appreciated any interviews with her. She is one of the quickest wits and obviously very intelligent. I'm glad she is a Cyclone and I wish the best.

    She had one sneaky "up and under" move under the basket that was hard to stop too and ran the floor pretty well for a post. I think she is a teacher now? I know she was a business major at first because I had a lot of the same classes with her but eventually she switched as then my brother who was an education major had her in classes or something too I think.

    I wonder what she is doing now in her life.
    Could she end up on BF's staff at some point, or maybe she has something better going on for her?

    Re: Cyclone Great Will Have Jersey Retired

    I believe she is a teacher in Fargo, that's based on the Cyclone alumni section in cyclones.com
    Chris, would love to see if you can score an interview with her. She definitely deserves the honor.

    That's what she said.

    My roommate thought she was hot. I was alittle scared of her height and the fact she could rip my head off and spit down my throat. I did have her in a class or two and she was a nice person.

    Just read the article. We should also be thankful to Dan McCarney. Nice to know that the coaches are helping each other !

    Re: Cyclone Great Will Have Jersey Retired

    I thought she was hot when she played... she came back for the all-something or other team last year... she wasn't what she once was (in terms of looks)... but she's still a great cyclone!

    To honor the 1999 Elite 8 team - there was a banner raised to honor the team.

    "I knew all along I wanted to go to Iowa State," Welle said.

    In full Angie said: "Deep down, I knew all along I wanted to go to Iowa State."

    I almost teared-up reading that.

    I absolutely love people that come and leave my beloved ISU with the sentiment "I always wanted to be..." or "I will always be a Cyclone!" And it doesn't hurt when it comes from one of the greats.

    Re: Cyclone Great Will Have Jersey Retired

    There's no question no other former Cyclone WBB player could have their number retired before she did. You can make arguments as to who was the "best" ISU WBB player ever, but she's without a doubt the most valuable player ISU has ever had.
