It did not take long for Iowa State to land its second transfer from the transfer portal, as the Cyclones added former Marquette guard Mackenzie Hare on Monday.

Hare has been widely known for 3-point shooting after not only leading the Golden Eagles in that category but finishing among the top players in the nation in 3-point percentage (42.5%) and in 3-point makes (91).

Along with the ability to make shots from beyond the arc, Hare played in all 32 games for Marquette and contributed an average of 14 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game on 45.5% shooting.

The Naperville, Illinois, native’s career-best performance came this past season, scoring 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting, 6-of-9 from 3-point range, with a free throw against Boston College on Nov. 24.

Hare’s nine made shots and six 3-pointers were the most made in Hare’s two-year stint with the Golden Eagles, showing the ability to be a lethal offensive player.

In a two-year career with Marquette, Hare was named to the Big East All-Freshman Team along with being an All-Big East honorable mention for this past season.

With the Cyclones losing their best 3-point shooter in Hannah Belanger from this past season, they looked to fill the need with players who shot the ball exceptionally well from beyond the arc, and it looks like they found a player who does that in Hare.
