On Sunday, the 8-0 and 17th-ranked Iowa State Cyclones will take on the George Mason Patriots in the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii.
Head coach Fred Hoiberg has this Iowa State team off to one of their best starts in recent memory, and much of that can be attributed to the emergence of JUCO transfer Dustin Hogue, who leads the Big 12 in rebounding at over 11 per game:
“He’s just an absolute warrior. He goes after every ball,” coach Fred Hoiberg said. “The rebounds he gets, he gets up higher than everyone else and then he elevates a couple of inches. It’s just amazing to see how he goes after that ball.”
They’ll look to keep this hot streak going against a 5-4 George Mason team that has lost their last two, including a lopsided loss to Oklahoma in their most recent outing.
