YOU can help the Cyclone women set a record

by Steve Jones

The Iowa State women's basketball team hopes for a new record Saturday, Dec. 13, but it won't come on the playing floor. Coach Bill Fennelly's Cyclones host the Iowa Hawkeyes tomorrow (Saturday) at noon, and athletic department officials want to break ISU's all-time women's attendance mark of 4,850 fans.

The game is one of five ISU vs. Iowa athletic events in Ames Dec. 12-14.

Iowa's women's team will be making its first visit to Hilton Coliseum since 1989. The teams met last year in Iowa City, where Iowa won, 64-53. Tickets to the women's game are $5 for adults and $3 for students and children. (If it's your Saturday to babysit and you can't get to Hilton, the game is being broadcast live on WOI-TV, channel 5.)

Coach Tim Floyd's Cyclone men's basketball squad hosts nationally ranked Iowa at 4 p.m. Saturday. ISU has won three of the past four games with the Hawkeyes. The game has been sold out for weeks. WOI-TV also is broadcasting the men's game live.

Fans will need separate tickets for the women's and men's basketball games. The coliseum will be cleared after the women's contest.

At 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 14, the Cyclone wrestling team will meet the Hawks on the mats in Hilton Coliseum. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for students and children. Iowa Public Television (KDIN-TV) will tape the match and run a delayed broadcast at 5 p.m. Sunday.

The women and men's swim teams also will host Iowa this weekend in the Beyer Hall pool. The men will challenge the Hawks at 7 p.m. tonight (Friday). The women's teams compete at noon Saturday. Admission to both swim meets is free.
