The 14th ranked Iowa State women take the Big-12 lead on the road to visit 13th-ranked Texas Tech tonight. ISU is 8-1 in the league race and begins a stretch in which they play four of their next five games away from home. Coach Bill Fennelly says it seems like each team has to go through a tough stretch and this is theirs. Texas Tech coach Marsha Sharp says the Cyclones are a difficult team to guard. Sharp says they can attack from every position. She says they can shoot the three quickly or take the ball to the rim. The Cyclones are 18-2 overall. Texas Tech is 16-4.
