AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State men’s basketball team will face a road test at Creighton in the 2021 BIG EAST-Big 12 Battle on Saturday, Dec. 4.

The matchup will feature new Cyclone head coach T.J. Otzelberger facing off against one of his mentors and former ISU head coach Greg McDermott, who is in his 11th season coaching at Creighton.

Otzelberger served on McDermott’s Iowa State staff from 2006-10.

The Cyclones are 1-0 in the BIG EAST-Big 12 Battle, defeating Seton Hall in 2019 at Hilton Coliseum. Last season’s meeting with DePaul was canceled due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols just hours before tipoff.

The Cyclones and Bluejays will be meeting for the 32nd time with Iowa State owning a 16-15 lead in the all-time series. ISU won the last meeting, 91-88, in 2010 on a buzzer-beating half court shot from Jamie Vanderbeken in Des Moines. Creighton leads 11-7 in games played in Omaha, where the teams haven’t met since 1995.
