AMES (KWWL) -

Iowa State struggled from the field and at the line but prevailed in overtime against a gritty Missouri squad Tuesday for a 66-59 victory in Hilton Coliseum. The win moves the Cyclones to 8-7 in the Big 12 Conference, 17-9 overall. Missouri falls to 1-14 in the Big 12 and 11-15 overall.

The Cyclones got a huge three-pointer from Hallie Christofferson with 2:32 to go in overtime and held Missouri without a basket in the extra period until the game's final second.

Chelsea Poppens led the Cyclones with 25 points and 16 rebounds in 33 minutes of action for her 13th double-double of the season. Poppens attempted a school-record 24 free throws, connecting on 15 of them. The Cyclones might have put the game out of reach earlier, but were inconsistent at the free-throw line, hitting on 25-39 attempts. Christofferson had 13 points and six rebounds. Christine Flores led Missouri with 16 points. Iowa State trailed for nearly 37 minutes of the game, taking a 56-54 lead on a pair of Chassidy Cole free throws with 45 seconds left in regulation. Missouri's Sydney Crafton hit a three with 3.4 seconds left in the second half that forced overtime.
