TCU tired in lopsided loss against Iowa State, 84-63

"It'll get here a little bit quicker".

"It's unbelievable what they've been able to do", said Iowa State coach Steve Prohm.

Sunday, West Virginia will learn its seeding and destination for next week's NCAA Tournament, the Mountaineers' third straight bid and seventh under Huggins.

Morris finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the fourth-seeded Cyclones (21-10), who will carry their late-season season momentum into a semifinal matchup with No. 1 Kansas or TCU on Friday.

"We're going to see what happens", Carter said.

An up-and-down season for the Cyclones has left their fate in limbo. I want them to watch this game and go to bed.

Here's a look at the final bracket. This year's squad is peaking at the right time as well. Jaylin Walker scored 30 points, Jimmy Hall added 19 and sixth-seeded Kent State (22-13) beat rival Akron (26-8) 70-65 in the Mid-American Conference championship game. The month included a 6-2 mark for the Cyclones, who swept West Virginia and knocked off then-No.

HARTFORD, Conn. - SMU goes into today's American Athletic Conference championship on a 15-game winning streak, having won more games than any other team in the program's history.

The coaching staff gathered in the Sukup Basketball Complex after the West Virginia loss. The Cyclones also boast a resume-building win over Drake, which burst into the top 25. "But we just didn't seem to respond like I thought we would".

They lead the nation this season in steals and turnovers forced. "I kind of had them on the outside looking in until that game". I think everybody says it's hard to play against us with one day's prep, but I think it's really hard to play against them with one day prep as well because they shoot the ball so well. And the damage might have been too much for the team to overcome, despite the fast finish. They are back in the championship game after missing last year's tournament because of NCAA sanctions. Morris was tied up near midcourt and several players got into a shoving match, and the Cowboys' Brandon Averette and the Cyclones' Donovan Jackson were hit with technical fouls.

Former Kansas State quarterback Jake Waters is returning to the Big 12.

Iowa State has advanced to the finals of the Big 12 Tournament for the third time in the last four years. Iowa State's half-court defense stumped WVU.

Iowa State University announced Waters' addition to the staff Friday.

Morris - who surpassed Georges Niang to become the program's all-time wins leader (99) - made a to-do list when he decided last summer that the National Basketball Association dream could wait another year.

Monte Morris often speaks of leaving his jersey in a better place.
