ISU Women headed to the Elite 8

Posted:

BERKELEY(KWWL) -- For the only the second time in school history the Iowa State Women's Basketball team is headed to the Elite 8. 

The woman battled it out against Michigan State.  It wasn't until the final 1:10 that game that Iowa State pulled the 69-68 win to advance to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Championships.  The Cyclones improve to 27-8 overall, tying the school record for wins which was set in 1998-99, the school's other Elite Eight season.

Michigan State held a 68-61 edge with 1:23 remaining following an Aisha Jefferson layup. The Cyclones turned up the heat with a full-court press that left the Spartans struggling to find an answer and missed the final shot.

Cyclones advance to the Elite 8.
