Ames, Iowa — Iowa State basketball coach T. J. Otzelberger says his first goal is to restore pride in the program.
The former Cyclone assistant took over a program that plunged to the bottom of the Big 12 with an 0-18 record in Steve Prohm’s final season as head coach.
Otzelberger says it is important to have players who take pride in being a Cyclone.
Otzelberger looks to rebuild a program that has won four Big 12 Tournament titles and made five trips to the NCAA Tournament since 2014.
The Cyclones open at home November ninth against Kennesaw State.
