Iowa State men’s basketball players drafted into 2019 YMCA Cap City League



Members of the Iowa State Basketball Team took part in the second weekend of Cap City League games Sunday June 24 at Valley High School. This weekend seven ISU Players participated. 



The YMCA Capital City League had the annual draft for their summer basketball league which will feature 12 Cyclones from the 2019-20 squad.

The draft consisted of two snake-style draft rounds for Iowa State and Drake players, which was followed by six open standard draft rounds of former and current college players as well high school players. The Iowa State round was first followed by the Drake round.

The Cap City League will be valuable for an Iowa State team which will be returning lots of young and inexperienced players with the exception of Nixon, who sat out per NCAA transfer rules last season, Bolton, who is transfering from Penn State and Young, who missed significant time last year due to injury and Jacobson. Jacobson is the only player of the 12 to play over five minutes last season.
