It’s a bit light on the slate for Big 12 men’s basketball action. This is a good chance to check out some women’s basketball action, including the Cyclone Challenge this weekend.
The Cyclone Challenge will take place on Saturday and Sunday with doubleheaders beginning at 1:00 PM Central time. Iowa State will take on Holy Cross on Saturday and then will take on either St. Louis or William and Mary on Sunday. Coverage of the entire event will be on Cyclones.TV (online and Mediacom).
Before then, the Iowa State men’s basketball team will try for their best start in school history and a chance to win the 2013 Diamond Head Classic tournament. They’ll face Boise State on Christmas night. Coverage will be on ESPN2, approximately 25 minutes after the conclusion of the 3rd-place game between Akron and South Carolina.
