Red Raiders must keep up with Iowa State to win in Ames
AMES, Iowa — Some call it “Hilton Magic.”
Iowa State has won 19 straight games at James H. Hilton Coliseum in Ames dating back to January 2014.
Since the Hilton Coliseum opened in 1971-72, the Cyclones have gone undefeated at home four times.
And they’re on the verge of a fifth.
“They don’t lose many games,” coach Tubby Smith said. “They haven’t lost a game yet at Hilton. We’ve got our work cut out for us.”
Iowa State is currently 12-0 at home with five of those wins coming in conference play. Saturday, the No. 11 Cyclones host Texas Tech at 1 p.m.
