Coach Bill Fennelly says they had an amazing performance out of the players and one he thinks the fans enjoyed. Fennelly says the experienced players led the way. He says it was the last time they would get to play against Iowa and he wanted them to understand it and enjoy it, and they did.
Iowa State outrebounded the Hawkeyes who also had 19 turnovers to drop to 5-5 on the season.
Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says it came down to missed box outs and too many turnovers as they outshot them in every category, but Iowa State shot the ball 12 more times.
Bluder says dribble penetration led to the Cyclones three point barrage. She says they have to learn to contain a drive, as Iowa State had 21 assists on their 28 field goals.
