2021 - BIG XII TOURNAMENT
BIG 12 MEN'S & WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
T-Mobile Center & Municipal Auditorium - Downtown Kansas City - #HiltonSouth2021 #CyclonesEverywhere
Believe it or not, but the Big 12 Men's & Women's Tournament is here. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, our annual week of celebration and events are cancelled. However, if you do find yourself visiting Kansas City, please be sure to enjoy all of our wonderful local businesses and Cyclone Centers. Now, more than ever, these businesses need your support and most importantly, we want all of them to be around next year when we welcome all of our Cyclone Alumni and Friends back to #HiltonSouth.
The Big 12 Tournament Week of 2022 can not get here soon enough, but until then, we will continue to cheer on the both the Men and Women as they look for a few victories this week in Kansas City.
On behalf of the entire Iowa State Alumni of KC Board, we wish you well and may you stay safe and healthy.
Loyal. Forever. True. #HiltonSouth2021 #CyclonesEverywhere

BIG 12 TOURNAMENT CYCLONE CENTERS
Every year we look to provide our alumni with a list of our favorite spots to go, and we are excited to provide some new options in 2021. In addition to our staple of McFadden’s Sport Saloon, located directly across from the Sprint Center, we have two new locations for everyone to check out.
Taps On Main – 1715 Main Street
Just a short walk south of the Power & Light District, Taps On Main has become one of our favorite Cyclone homes throughout the past few seasons. With their Self-Pour Beer Tap Wall and an amazing menu (especially the Wings!), this should definitely be a stop while you are in Kansas City. Busch Light and Bud Light Specials throughout the week for all Cyclone Fans.
The Quaff Bar & Grill – 1010 Broadway Boulevard
New to our gamewatch slate this season, the Quaff Bar & Grill has been a fan-favorite. This amazing ownership team has opened its door to Cyclone Nation and fully embraced #HiltonSouth. Not only does the bar have some great deals for our alumni, but it can fit hundreds. If you are looking for a fun spot to chill in between games or celebrate with your fellow alumni, swing by The Quaff and enjoy an amazing gameday atmosphere.
