Upcoming Season’s Tipoff Times posted for Men’s Basketball

As of Tuesday, we are less than three weeks away from the 2021-22 College Basketball season.

And since, Iowa State has posted its tipoff times for the upcoming year as well as TV & streaming selections for each game as well.

The Cyclones will officially open their season on Tuesday, November 9 when they take on Kennesaw State at Hilton Coliseum 7:00 p.m.

However, Iowa State will play two secret scrimmage games before the home opener, according to WatchStadium.

The secret scrimmage / joint-practice type of events will take place on Saturday, October 23 (South Dakota State) and Saturday, October 30 (Northwestern at Davenport, IA). They will not be televised.

Iowa State will participate in the NIT Season Tipoff as its early season tournament this year, with the potential of playing in the championship game on Black Friday slated for 8:30 p.m. on an ESPN network.

The Cyclones will play a consolation game on Black Friday if they don’t make it to the title, within hours of both the football team playing TCU and the women’s basketball squad facing off with Charlotte in Florida.

The annual Cy-Hawk Series game against Iowa is slated for an 8:00 p.m. ESPN2 tip and Senior Night will take place against Oklahoma State on March 2.
