Welcome to the first post from Inside the Alley! We are hard at work planning what is sure to be another exciting season of men’s and women’s basketball at Hilton Coliseum! There is plenty to look forward to this upcoming season, like Hilton After Class next week before Hilton Madness and that team out east Iowa coming to Ames the week before finals, Tennessee coming to town in January for the men’s Big 12/SEC Challenge, and as always, exciting Big 12 competition. We’re looking forward to seeing all of you at Hilton this upcoming season!
