The Cyclone men have won six straight Big 12 games for the first time since 2005 and are alone in 2nd place. This is remarkable considering where we were just a few short weeks ago. Before the win at Kansas, many were concerned about making the NCAA tournament and now we have secured a record sixth straight appearance in March Madness with what is likely to be a 6 or 7 seed.  Not bad at all for a team that struggled to find an identity for much of the season.  That is no longer a problem and our senior laden team is playing its best ball when it counts most.

The Cyclone women have won five straight heading into the Big 12 Tournament this weekend in Oklahoma City.  The fifth seeded Cyclones will play fourth seed and 24th ranked Kansas State at 11AM this Saturday on FSN. The win on Monday also ensured that the women will return to the NCAA tournament after missing the field last year for the first time in ages.


Cy's Days of Service
The DFW Cyclones are partnering with Make-A-Wish North Texas on Saturday April 1st as we assist with their annual Walk For Wishes® fundraising event.  We expect to be manning water stations along the 5K walking course or wherever else they can use us.  Make-A-Wish expects to raise over $275,000 during the course of the event and we are thrilled to be part of such a fantastic cause that helps so many children.  Let's all wear our Iowa State or DFW Cyclones gear to help show North Texas that the Cyclones are there in full force.  We have been asked to provide a preliminary list of volunteers by March 4th so please sign up ASAP. Details are below.

Walk For Wishes® is a 1 mile and 5k Fun Walk where participants, Wish Kids and volunteers take big strides to make more wishes come true! Every dollar raised from this fun-filled event will go to fulfilling the wishes of our community's children.  You can be part of an event that brings hope, strength and joy to the lives of area children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.

Cyclone Spotlight
We've added a new feature to the website called Cyclone Spotlight. In order to reinforce the notion that our group is for everyone, we will name a local Cyclone randomly and post their name on top of the homepage. Check to see if you might be feature. The names will change sporadically but your name will probably be featured at some point so pay attention. While you are there, check out the other pages. We have added a lot of new content to the website lately that you might find useful and update it regularly.

Cyclones Everywhere
You may have already noticed, but the ISU Alumni Association has a new look, a new tagline that better reflects the global impact of our university, and a new commitment to telling the stories of Cyclones everywhere. Starting today, you're invited to show and share your Cyclone pride using the hashtag #CyclonesEverywhere. Be sure to check out to learn more.
