ISU's resilience keyed by clutch guard Naz Long

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State is in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2000 because it's a resilient bunch that doesn't shrink from the moment.

No one epitomizes the mental toughness of these Cyclones more than sophomore Naz Long. His ability to shake off adversity and knock down big shots is a huge reason why they're still playing.

Long's shooting kept Iowa State (28-7) alive more than once in the regular season, and lately he's been as clutch as any player in the country.

Dating to the Big 12 tournament, Long is 5 of 5 from 3-point range in the final five minutes of postseason games.
