Winless in the Big 12 heading into the game, Iowa State had no trouble dominating Kansas from the start Saturday on the way to an 87-58 women’s basketball victory at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa.

The Cyclones (10-5 overall, 1-3 in conference) took an 18-4 first-quarter lead. At that point, Kansas had made 1 of 11 field goals and misfired on all four 3-pointers.

McKenzie Calvert led the Jayhawks with 12 points and made 2 of 4 3-pointers on a day KU shot 5 of 24 from long distance.

Kylee Kopatch was the only other KU scorer in double figures with 10 points. Kansas guard Jessica Washington made just 1 of 9 shots and had six turnovers.

Sophomore guard Bridget Carleton led five Cyclones in double figures with 21 points.

The Jayhawks (6-9, 0-4) couldn’t take advantage of 23 Iowa State turnovers and had 19 of their own.

Kansas travels to Manhattan for a 7 p.m. tipoff Wednesday against Kansas State.

No stock photos of at least a past ISU KU game from Ames available?
