Fri, 01/15/2010 - 11:30pm
Greg McDermott took his seat in front of the media in Hilton Coliseum on Wednesday night and seemed to mentally exhale. Coaches often use post-game press conferences to fully decompress what they've just witnessed unfold in front of them, and as the Iowa State coach spoke, it became clear what he was most feeling: awe.
