Women’s hoops lands big commitment

Bill Fennelly’s Iowa State women’s basketball program snagged the top-ranked prep out of Minnesota on Wednesday. 

TT Starks, a 5-foot-10 guard out of Hopkins High School in Minnetonka, is the 28th ranked prospect in the country according to Prospects Nation. All Star Girls Report ranks Starks 36th in the country. 

Starks chose Iowa State over Minnesota and Iowa, although other schools were reportedly showing heavy interest as of late. 

The Ames Tribune recently spoke with Stars about her decision. CLICK HERE to read that story. 

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.
