Iowa State rolls past North Dakota State 81-59
AMES, Iowa (AP) — The thinking when Iowa State suspended sophomore forward Cam Lard until December was that the Cyclones would need to find a way to survive until they got their uber-talented big man back.
Well, December is here — and the Cyclones have improved so quickly that Lard might find minutes hard to come by.
Marial Shayok scored 20 points, Michael Jacobson had 15 with 10 rebounds and Iowa State rolled past North Dakota State 81-59 for its fourth straight win.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State fans showed up to Hilton Coliseum on Friday night to the sight of star Lindell Wigginton in a cardinal-colored cast instead of a cardinal and gold jersey.

Iowa State rolls past Alabama State 79-53
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Transfers Michael Jacobson and Marial Shayok gave Iowa State the instant impact it was hoping for in its opener.

Led by Wigginton, Iowa State loads up after down season
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State lost its last seven games in 2017-18 in part because it didn't have enough players to compete in the Big 12.

Iowa State seeks experience from UVA transfer Marial Shayok
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State knew it needed an instant infusion of veteran talent after its worst record in seven years.

The 6-foot-5 Long, who is from suburban Oklahoma City, averaged just 1.9 points in 9.5 minutes over 22 games this past season despite ample opportunities to earn his way into a thin rotation.
Iowa State will also add three highly-touted freshman guards as freshmen next season and Virginia transfer Marial Shayok, a shooting guard like Long, will be eligible next winter.
Coach Tony Bennett sees ‘uncertainty’ for youthful Virginia
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Tony Bennett highlighted Virginia's youth when looking ahead to this season, and it is a level of inexperience that may challenge the defense-first foundation the coach has been building with the Cavaliers.
Virginia not only lost its leader in point guard London Perrantes to graduation, but had two experienced guards — Marial Shayok and Darius Thompson — decide to transfer. Their absences will especially be felt on defense, but both scored in stretches, too.

Shayok sparks No. 16 Virginia past Georgia Tech, 62-49
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Marial Shayok is emerging as the scorer Virginia so badly needs, and making his elevation to the starting lineup look brilliant.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Virginia coach Tony Bennett didn't know exactly what to expect in the eighth-ranked Cavaliers' season opener, between being down two forwards to losing so much from the team that made a deep NCAA Tournament push.
When it was over, he saw the Cavaliers have some balance and depth to work with, along with a defense that looked ready from the tip.
