CFTV: ISU hoops coaches show admiration for each other

To end last night’s 11 o’clock Sports Center, ESPN anchor John Buccigross praised both the Iowa State men’s and women’s basketball programs for their undefeated starts to the season. Iowa State is the only school in the program that currently boasts unbeaten men’s and women’s programs at this point in the season. The women will look to continue the streak tonight at 7 when Texas Tech invades Hilton Coliseum. 

Earlier this week, both Fred Hoiberg and Bill Fenellly were asked about the relationship between the two programs. I found their answers to be not only refreshing, but interesting. I think you will enjoy this  CFTV production.
