How confident do you feel going into this game, given the physicality of the Texas contest and the fact that your team is playing with a short bench?

“I feel a lot better going in there after a victory. I don't know how comfortable anybody feels going into Ames. It's a tough venue to play in. Coach Fennelly has been very strong with his program for years, and especially at home. So we've got a big challenge ahead of us.”

What makes it such a tough venue?

“It's their fan base. You're going to have 10 to 11,000 people there that are screaming and live for the women's program and the Cyclone program there. You see it on the men's side now. Just very loyal and knowledgeable fans at Iowa State.”
