DES MOINES, Iowa — Iowa State's final non-conference win over Mississippi Valley State felt more like a loss because of how poorly the Cyclones played.
Coach Fred Hoiberg aired his frustrations to his team, and those words have sunk in.
Iowa State (12-3, 2-0 Big 12) is off to its first 2-0 start in the Big 12 in five years. The Cyclones beat Texas 77-71, then trounced preseason favorite Texas A&M 74-50 on Saturday behind 10 points, 10 assists and 18 rebounds from sophomore Royce White — just the sixth triple-double registered in a Big 12 game.
Iowa State hosts No. 9 Missouri on Wednesday night with a chance to knock off its first ranked opponent of the season.
