Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg on Kansas’ hot start and how the Cyclones were able to weather the storm.
"They came out on fire. I’ve been in this building enough as a player, as a coach, as a scout and it happens pretty much every game. They come out and hit their shots early and you have to withstand those runs. You have to give them a lot of credit, they do such a good job of jumping on you. You can’t panic and we didn’t. I give our guys credit for getting back in the game and cutting it to one late."
