A Weekend To Remember Iowa State welcomes back Men's Basketball Letterwinners on Reunion Weekend

Around 90 former Cyclone letterwinners returned to Ames last weekend for the first basketball reunion weekend held under head coach Steve Prohm. The last nine decades of Iowa State men's basketball were represented, as well as all 20 postseason appearances.

Bill Block, the starting guard on the 1944 Final Four team, returned to Ames.
"Iowa State is my home. I'm always a part of this family." - Curtis Stinson
Just a couple guys from Kansas that had a major impact on the program: Jacy Holloway and Paul Shirley.

"To the guys currently here I say "Enjoy these four years because it goes by fast. But really appreciate it, because this is probably going to be the best. It was the best years of my life." - Stevie Johnson
"Iowa State basketball has been a dream come true for a lot of us, but also a lot of hard work and heartache. One thing it has shown us is that the memories, the magic and the friendships last forever." - Georges Niang
