AMES — Iowa State coach T.J. Otzelberger is angry over reports that Kansas State accused the Cyclones of spying on their huddles in last week’s game in Hilton Coliseum. He addressed the reports following Saturday’s 79-75 win over 7th-ranked Kansas.

Otzelberger says there was no spying.

Next up for Iowa State is a trip to Baylor on Saturday.

A 3-pointer by Terrance Williams II got the Wolverines within 67-66 before Sandfort scored eight points to help Iowa rebuild a nine-point lead. Iowa’s lead reached 13 when Freeman hit a pair from the line near the 4-minute mark and the Hawkeyes led by double digits for the remainder of the game.

MINNEAPOLIS — An Iowa native says the Big Ten is expecting more records set at this season’s Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament in Minneapolis. Megan Kahn is from Newton and is the Big Ten Vice President of Women’s Basketball. It is the second straight year the Twin Cities serves as host.

Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeye women are setting attendance records wherever they play and Kahn expects the Big Ten Tournament to be no different.

Kahn says the “Caitlin Clark Effect” is real.

The tournament runs March 6th through the 10th.



MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (AP) — JJ Quinerly scored 22 of her career-high 31 points in the second half, including West Virginia’s last 11 points, and made a critical defensive play in the last minute as the No. 24 Mountaineers defeated Iowa State 84-78. The Cyclones were down 79-76 and had the ball as the final minute approached. West Virginia had the offense stymied and when Emily Ryan drove to the basket, Quinerly tied her up for a held ball turnover. Quinerly then hit a jumper on the ensuing possession and added three free throws to ice the game. At 3:33 and 2:06 of the fourth quarter, she hit 3-pointers when Iowa State was within two points. Audi Crooks matched her career high with 25 points in a second-straight game and had a career-high 16 rebounds for the Cyclones.

Officials halted play two minutes into the game when a bat descended on the court seconds after Wembanyama made a 3-pointer. The Spurs’ mascot, The Coyote, captured the bat with a net after numerous failed attempts, much to the delight of Wembanyama and Jeremy Sochan.
