Iowa State guard Rasir Bolton took to Twitter on Thursday night to make sure Cyclones fans knew he was “committed to outlasting these tough times.”
Bolton, the Cyclones’ leading scorer this season, saw his team wrap up a 2-22 season with a loss to Oklahoma in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament on Wednesday.
With rumors swirling about his head coach, Steve Prohm, it would be hard to blame the junior for exploring the possibility of transferring to another program. Prohm told reporters that he would talking about his future with Cyclones athletic director Jamie Pollard next week.
The junior’s message on Twitter seemed to let everyone know that he’s committed to remaining in Ames no matter what.
“Tough times don’t last, but tough people do! CyclONEnation, I am committed to outlasting these tough times. With your support there’s nothing we can’t overcome together. We will bring the Magic back to Hilton! Proud to be a Cyclone. Stay Humble, May Stumble, Never Tumble. — RA #45”
Bolton finished the season averaging 15.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.3 steals per game. He missed a couple of games late in the season due to an injury, but he came off the bench against Oklahoma and scored 18 points, along with grabbing three rebounds and dishing out four assists.
This season was one to forget in Ames. This 2020-21 season was, by far, the worst season of Prohm’s tenure, as the Cyclones went 2-22 overall and 0-18 in Big 12 action, the program’s first winless season in league play since before World War II.
