In the heart of March Madness, the Iowa State women’s basketball team faced a formidable opponent—the Stanford Cardinal. The stakes were high, the tension palpable, and the hopes of Cyclone fans hung in the balance. But beyond the scoreboard, something remarkable unfolded—a moment of inspiration that transcended wins and losses.

The No. 7-seeded Cyclones, led by head coach Bill Fennelly, fought valiantly against the No. 2-seeded Cardinal. The game stretched into overtime, each possession a testament to their grit and determination. The roar of the crowd echoed through the arena as Cameron Brink and her Stanford teammates pushed back with equal fervor.

Amidst the adrenaline-fueled drama, a familiar face emerged from the stands. Brock Purdy, the star quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, had returned to his alma mater—the very place where he once donned the Cyclone jersey. His presence was more than symbolic; it was a bridge connecting past and present, a reminder of the Cyclone spirit that courses through every athlete who wears the cardinal and gold.

As the final buzzer sounded, the Cyclones fell short, losing 87-81 in overtime. But it was in the locker room that Brock Purdy’s impact truly resonated. With genuine emotion, he addressed the team-

“All you guys are some freaking ballers. I hope you guys know the standard is high here, the standard is high. You guys have laid a foundation with Coach Fennelly, and what you guys continue to do and allow the younger players to come in and keep it up—that’s all you guys.”Brock Purdy said.

“So, heads freaking high as you walk out because you guys put it all out there. I love you guys, what you stand for, and I’m so proud to be a Cyclone and watch because what an honor. So, heads up, freaking champions, in my eyes. Love you girls.”

Brock’s words echoed through the room, touching hearts and igniting a fire within each player. They weren’t just about basketball; they were about resilience, camaraderie, and the indomitable Cyclone spirit.
