Head Women's Basketball Coach

Dear Prospective Student-Athlete:


That is what I hope you will do after learning more about our program.  As I enter my 21st year as head coach, I am very proud of what we have built both on and off the court.  I know that the future looks very bright for the Cyclones as well!

In the classroom our players have done a great job.  I am proud to say that every player who has completed their eligibility has graduated!  Our players enjoy tremendous support by our athletics academic services staff which is housed in one of the newest building on campus.

On the court, we are coming off ninth-straight NCAA appearance.  Iowa State has been a regular in postseason play while competing in the Big 12 which is the nation’s best conference. 

Our players also benefit from one of the best gameday environments in the country.  Last season we drew almost 10,000 fans a game, which was the fifth-best in the nation.

I appreciate you taking the time to look into how Iowa State University can meet your college needs.  I am confident that the more you learn about us the more excited you will be about the Cyclones! I invite you to visit the interactive PDF above for a quick study on the opportunities that await you at Iowa State University.

Keep working hard in school and on your game.  Please give my best to your family.  Do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in any way.

Yours in hoops,

Bill Fennelly
