Cyclone women survive upset minded Green Bay, UConn next

Posted:

AMES (AP) -- Kelsey Bolte scored 15 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:11 left, and Iowa State held on to beat Wisconsin-Green Bay 60-56 Tuesday night to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA women's tournament.

The fourth-seeded Cyclones (25-7) had all they could handle from the feisty, 12th-seeded Phoenix before finally making a couple of big shots down the stretch to reach the regional semifinals for the second straight year and fifth time overall.

Iowa State's reward, if you can call it that, for all its hard work is a date with unbeaten Connecticut in Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday.

Anna Prins added 13 points for Iowa State, while Alison Lacey scored 12, handed out seven assists and made a game-saving defensive play.

ISU moves on to face #1 UConn, a team that's now won more than 70 consecutive games.
