The Cyclones (1-0), picked up the win over the Seahawks by a 95-62 final. 

The Cyclones were led on the afternoon by guards Naz Long and DeAndre Kane. Long finished with 26 points on 9-of-12 shooting and 8-for-11 from 3-point land. Kane came close to a triple-double but finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds, to go along with seven assists.
