AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State men’s basketball team will be in the national spotlight again in 2013-14 with two Big 12 Conference games selected for ESPN’s Big Monday schedule, which was released today by the league.
Iowa State will open the Big Monday schedule when it plays host to Kansas on Jan. 13. The Cyclones’ second appearance will come on Feb. 3 at Oklahoma State. Both games will start at 8 p.m. CT.
The Cyclones and Jayhawks thrilled the country in a Big Monday showdown last season at Hilton Coliseum. Kansas came out on top in that game, winning 108-96 in overtime despite a school-record 17 3-pointers by the Cyclones.
Iowa State’s entire 2013-14 schedule will be announced at a later date.
