The Cyclones aren't the sexiest program in the Big 12 (Iowa State isn't the sexiest anything, really) but they sport wins over Michigan, BYU, Baylor, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State, all locks or near-locks for the field of 68. One big reason is Kane, a 24-year old transfer who spent three tumultuous years at Marshall before his one year stuffing box scores in Ames. In the regular season, Kane averaged 17.1 points, 5.9 assists, and 6.7 rebounds, across-the-board production rarely seen in the college game.
