    Re: Who is Gary Thompson and how does he impact Cyclone MBB?

    Gary Thompson is also known as the "Roland Rocket" and is a Cyclone legend.

    After his playing days at ISU he played for team USA.
    He was an announcer for our games for some time.
    He is a big donor and supporter of the program.

    Gary Thompson (1955-57)

    Gary Thompson helped put Iowa State on the basketball map in the 1950s, earning first-team AP All-America honors and Big Seven Player of the Year accolades in 1957. The “Roland Rocket” was ISU’s first 1,000-point scorer, accumulating 1,253 points to rank 18th all-time in school history. The guard led ISU to the 1955 Big Seven Holiday Tournament title and paced ISU to its first and only win against a top-ranked opponent, knocking off No. 1 Kansas, 39-37, on Jan. 14, 1957. Thompson was a member of United States’ 1959 Pan American Games team. His jersey number (No. 20) has been officially retired.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    A man who's done more for Iowa State than any of us will ever know. He and Pete Taylor are/were big time leaders for ISU Athletics.
