St. Louis guard commits to Fennelly

On Tuesday evening, our Ian Smith reported via Twitter that the Iowa State women’s basketball program had picked up a 2014 commitment in the form of point guard Nakiah Bell. 

Bell is the 80th ranked prospect in the class of 2014 (and the 22nd best point guard) according to ProspectsNation.com. 

Bell’s prep school, the Incarnate Word Academy, went 31-0 last season in route to a Class 4 Missouri state championship. Bell averaged 10.7 points, seven assists and 1.8 steals per game during her junior season. 

Chris Williams


Chris was hired as Cyclone Fanatic’s publisher in the fall of 2009. He is Iowa State football's postgame show host on the Cyclone Radio Network and can be heard daily from 4-7 on Des Moines' top-rated sports station, 1460 KXnO. Williams, a 2007 graduate of Iowa State’s Greenlee School of Journalism, is the former publisher of the old CycloneNation.com (Scout.com). He has also written for the Des Moines Register, the Ames Tribune, CycloneReport.com and is the former sports director at KMA Radio. When Williams isn’t working, you can usually find him doing something outdoors with his wife Ashley, daughter Camryn, and Golden Retriever Dierks. He enjoys golfing, boating, country music, the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Braves and is passionate about any and all motor sports so finding Williams at a local dirt track is very common.
