ISU didn't look overly horrible against Bethune-Cookman, and I'd love for that trend to continue as we face a Texas Southern squad that really kind of sucks too. I'd love to see Diante start at the point, but I'll imagine that GMac will stick with the usual lineup. It'd be great to head into the matchup with Purdue coming off of a three game winning streak. Purdue handled Texas Southern 76-56, so let's aim for the same. We saw a team a bit more willing to go uptempo for once, and ISU really seemed to excel. I honestly feel we've slowed down wayyyyy too much this year. Also, the Tigers don't have a starter over 6-6, so it'd be nice to see Cory Johnson get a bucketload of minutes again.

Probable starters:

Iowa State
PG Bryan Petersen (Jr.)     5.7 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 2.6 apg
SG Wesley Johnson (So.)    11.4 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.0 apg

Texas Southern
G Sollie Norwood (Jr.)     16.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 0.8 apg
