Cyclone Women Advance to Sweet 16, 71-57 over Ball State

Posted:

Iowa State looked pretty comfortable playing the villain.

Nicky Wieben scored 18 points as the fourth-seeded Cyclones held off upset-minded Ball State 71-57 on Tuesday night to advance to the regional semifinals for the first time in eight years.

Kelsey Bolte added 16 points and seven rebounds and Amanda Nisleit had 14 points and 10 boards as Iowa State's veterans made sure the Cyclones wouldn't become 12th-seeded Ball State's second victim in three days.

Iowa State (26-8) will play No. 9 seed Michigan State in the Berkeley Regional semifinals on Saturday.

The Cardinals (26-9) became the feel-good story of the tournament's opening weekend after shocking two-time defending champion Tennessee in the first round.

    An offense missing Akrum Wadley and Matt Vandeberg struggled most of the night --

    And junior Dback Jake Gervase stole most of the show picking off Tyler Wiegers -- a play that came after multiple 3 and outs by the offense --
