KU women’s basketball suffers 89-67 road loss to Iowa State


Despite a career-high performance from junior Tina Stephens, the Kansas women’s basketball team suffered an 89-67 loss to Iowa State on Saturday in Hilton Coliseum.

Stephens poured in 20 points on 8-of-17 (47.0%) shooting from the field, while notching her first 3-pointer of the season. Mariane De Carvalho was the only other KU player to finish in double figures, adding 15 points for the visitors in the loss.

The Jayhawks now fall to 12-6 on the year and 1-6 in conference play, while Iowa State improves to 12-6 on the season and 4-3 in Big 12 play.

Kansas pulled in 16 offensive rebounds in the game and scored 12 second-chance points. KU posted a 37-35 advantage over ISU on the glass, with Stephens and junior Bailey Helgren both grabbing nine boards to lead the team.

In addition, the Jayhawks recorded eight steals and forced 20 turnovers by the Cyclones. Kansas exploited Iowa State’s miscues and dished out 18 assists in the game as a team.

Kansas will host Kansas State at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

The Cyclones were 58% from the field (both 2 pt. and 3 pt.). Feels like a step backwards. Hope it's an anomaly.

Iowa State has a lot of top 50 players on their roster. They recruit pretty good.

They locked up best player in Kansas for 2020 too.
