Cyclone women upset Texas... again

Posted: Updated:
AUSTIN, Texas (KWWL) -

 Nikki Moody's two free throws in the final minute turned out to be the difference as Iowa State rallied to stun #8 Texas 58-57. The win was Iowa State's second over the Longhorns this season. Iowa State rallied from 18 points down in Ames to defeat Texas earlier in the month.

The Longhorns' Nekia Jones converted on a 3 point play with 55 seconds remaining to give Texas a 3 point lead. Iowa State's Bryanna Fernstrom countered with a layup on the other end to pull the Cyclones within one. Texas threw away the ensuing inbounds, allowing Moody to hit her free throws after getting fouled on a drive. That would turn out to be the difference.

The Cyclones retained sole possession of 3rd in the Big 12 with the victory.
