The 17th-ranked Iowa State women’s basketball team will make its second Elite Eight appearance in school history Monday night when the Cyclones face second-ranked Stanford at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, Calif. The game will tip at 8 p.m. central.
Iowa State went on an 8-0 run over the final 1:10 to defeat Michigan State, 69-68, and advance to the Elite Eight. The Cyclones improve to 27-8 overall, tying the school record for wins which was set in 1998-99, the school’s other Elite Eight season.
Michigan State held a 68-61 edge with 1:23 remaining but Cyclones put on a full-court press that left the Spartans struggling to get the ball across half court.
Iowa State and Stanford have already matched up once this season, a 83-45 Cardinal win at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Classic in Hawaii on Nov. 29.
