AUSTIN, Texas – The Iowa State women’s basketball team (16-7, 5-7 Big 12) led Big 12 rival Texas (16-7, 7-4 Big 12) for almost the entire game, but a 6-minute scoring drought allowed the Longhorns to make a late surge to take the 71-64 victory.

How It Happened
The Cyclones came out firing and jumped out to an early 22-12 lead on 10 quick points from freshman Jadda Buckley. Buckley and point guard Nikki Moody each scored in double digits to lead the squad in the first half. It was more of the same for much of the second period, as the Cyclones led by as many as eight points with just under 6 minutes to play.

A three pointer from Texas’ Brady Sanders gave the Longhorns their first lead of the game with 2 minutes and 45 seconds left in the game. The Longhorns didn’t look back and continued to build a lead as Iowa State went without a field goal for over 6 and a half minutes.

Three point shooting kept Iowa State ahead of the Longhorns for the majority of the game, as the Cyclones hit 10 shots from beyond the arc, marking the 13th time this season the squad has netted double-digit buckets from beyond the arc. Moody, Buckley and Williamson each hit multiple three’s in the game.
