The Iowa State men’s basketball team received a special honor from state leaders Monday.
The Cyclones were recognized on the House and Senate floors for their success this season which included winning the Big 12 Tournament and a Sweet Sixteen birth in the NCAA Tournament.
Coach Fred Hoiberg predicted the Cyclones would have beaten UConn had they been at full strength.
“It was a great day just all the support we’ve had from the Senate to the Congress over the course of a year,” Coach Fred Hoiberg said. “It’s been incredible. Just the phone calls we’ve gotten from the different representatives.”
The team was also taken on a tour of the Capitol.
