The Iowa State women closed out non conference play with an 80-51 win over North Dakota State. The Cyclones open Big 12 play this weekend at top ranked Baylor.

I.S.U. coach Bill Fennelly says they are excited to get the win and now look forward to playing Baylor. He says everyone has to play them twice, so why not be the first. He says it will be a great challenge for his team to pay the number one team in the country on the road on TV. But he says you can say you don’t want to do it, or take on the challenge.
