This could be just the kind of victory that turns around the season for the Kansas State women.
The Wildcats held Iowa State star Hallie Christofferson without a field goal for more than 33 minutes Saturday as Kansas State posted an 80-73 victory over No. 13 Iowa State.
Averaging 21.5 points in her last four Big 12 games, Christofferson’s first-half jumper gave the Cyclones a 5-2 lead, but by the time she scored her second, they trailed by 14. She finished two of 11 from the field.
Kansas State, 8-9, 2-4 Big 12, got 27 points from Leticia Romero and 23 from Katya Leick and posted its first win over the Cyclones in eight regular-season games.
The Cyclones were just 20 of 59 from the field (33.9 percent). Brynn Willliamson scored 17 points and Nicole Blaskowsky added another 16.
Iowa State, which now has lost three straight after starting the season with 14 consecutive wins, falling to No. 15 Oklahoma State and West Virginia at home.
