SPOKANE, Wash. (KWWL) -

For the third time since 1999, the Georgia Women's basketball team knocks the Iowa State Cyclones out of the NCAA Tournament.  The Bulldogs took advantage of a Cyclone cold spell to begin the second half to beat Iowa State 65-60 and advance to the Sweet Sixteen.

The game was tied at halftime at 32, Iowa State only made 1 field goal in the first 11:25 of the second half as Georgia built a 51-37 lead with 8:54 to play.  The Cyclones then went on a 19-1 run to take a 56-52 lead on an Ann Prins 3 pointer with 2:32 to go.  But Georgia outscored the Cyclones 13-4 to close the game.  Anna Prins led Iowa State with 23 points while former Aplington-Parkersburg star Chelsea Poppens scored 14 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in her final game in a Cyclones uniform.
