Oklahoma took down Iowa State in a high-scoring affair Monday night, 94-83. Though not necessarily a rivalry game, the Cyclones were burned by an in-state comrade in our Fan Tweet of the Night from ECC Breaking News:
Iowa State figuring out the tough way there is no "D" in the term 'JUCO Tranfers.' #ISUvsOU.

Perhaps there is a budding rivalry between community colleges and junior colleges that I was unaware of given that ECC stands for Ellsworth Community College and Iowa State has multiple JUCO transfers in its rotation this year. Of all the many Fan Tweet of the Nights we’ve done, this zing came out of no where and hit its mark squarely between each and every brick from the free-throw line.
For what it’s worth, the Cyclones are still ranked No. 14 in the nation and will be dancing with the best basketball programs in the nation come March. Tonight, though, there were only two winners in the nationally televised game: Oklahoma and Ellsworth. And for that, ECC, we thank you.
