Peterson: Pathetically soft showing by an Iowa State team that's still ...

— Saturday was as bad as it gets for an Iowa State basketball team that at this time a week ago was celebrating an upset win against then-eighth-ranked Texas Tech.

It was so bad that Donovan Jackson laid it on the line after the embarrassing 68-45 loss against Tennessee at a place fans no longer use the words "Hilton" and "Magic" in the same sentence.

The school’s lowest point total in a home game since a 56-43 loss against Oklahoma in the old Armory in 1959 included a horrendous shooting performance — and getting smoked on the boards is putting it mildly.

Iowa State hasn't lost three home games by 15 points or more in a while, like it's done this season, but stay tuned if these guys continue playing soft:

Jan 27, 2018; Ames, IA, USA; Tennessee Volunteers guard Chris Darrington (32) and Iowa State Cyclones forward Zoran Talley Jr. (23) go for a loose ball during the first half at James H. Hilton Coliseum.
