    Volleyball To Play Home Matches At Ames High School

    AMES, Iowa – Iowa State’s nationally ranked volleyball team will play its 2010 home schedule at Ames High School after flood waters in Ames damaged Hilton Coliseum last week. The Cyclones’ Wednesday home matches will start at 7 p.m. (they were originally set to begin at 6:30 p.m.) to allow for the high school to clear after school days. All other Iowa State home matches will begin at their originally scheduled times.

    More online at Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports.

    Bummer, evidently no chance for a floor to get done in time.

    Probably more likely locker rooms, electrical, etc.

    Floor is probably the least of their concerns.

    This really sucks for volleyball, especially for the couple huge games they have this year.

    Anyone know what the seating capacity for volleyball will or might be for the Ames High site?

    Hopefully ESPN sticks with us and still airs the Nebraska match.

    I agree - I wan't prepared to hear that the entire home schedule will be there. That's awful news.

    That'll be interesting....

    Volleyball overlaps basketball by several weeks. Including NCAAs, it goes into December.

    Silver Lining: That's gonna make a great story and video package when we make the Final Four this year.

    What was average attendance for Big 12 games last year? If there are games that a lot more than 2000 would be expected could they maybe see if the Knapp Center or something else in DesMoines is available? or does moving a game to Des Moines make it less likely people go?

    I really don't know if most non-revenue sports fans are coming directly from Ames or if they come from all around central Iowa.

    2000 fans packing a small gym could actually create a pretty good advantage at times, just win ;-)

    I would assume Wells Fargo Arena could be used if a national tv spot was on the line. Maybe not though.

    They should move at least the Nebraska game to Des Moines to Wells Fargo or something like that.
