Iowa State adds ODU's Talley as grad transfer

AMES, Iowa (AP) Iowa State has added Zoran Talley, last season's Conference USA Sixth Man of the Year, as a graduate transfer.

The Cyclones announced Thursday that Talley, a 6-foot-7 forward who averaged 11.3 points in 2016-17 for Old Dominion, will join the team after he graduates in August.

Talley redshirted as a freshman for the Monarchs before playing two seasons. He will have two years of eligibility for Iowa State.

The addition of Talley, along with fellow graduate transfers Hans Brace and Jeff Beverly, is designed to help the Cyclones rebuild next season without falling too far down the Big 12 standings.

Iowa State (24-11) lost four senior starters to graduation after winning the Big 12 Tournament last season.
