AMES — The first of two nights of Cy-Hawk basketball begins tonight at Hilton Coliseum when the Iowa State women host 4th-ranked Iowa. The Cyclones won two years ago in Ames but the Hawkeyes have won six of the last seven in the series.

That’s ISU coach Bill Fennelly. The game will be played in front of a sold out crowd.

A young Iowa State team is 4-3 and needs to find a way to slow down reigning national player of the year Caitlin Clark.

Freshman center Audi Crooks is averaging 16 points per game and this will be her first appearance in the rivalry.

Crooks believes the Cyclones are making progress.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder says the Cyclones will have a good defensive plan against Caitlin Clark.

Bluder says it will be the first true road test for the Hawkeyes.

Caitlin Clark says it will be a big test for the Hawkeyes.

Clark says the emotion will be high.

Tipoff is scheduled for just after 6 o’clock tonight, with the pre-game starting at 5:45 on AM-1300 KGLO

Richmond enters tonight’s game with a record of 5-3.




DES MOINES — Drake coach Darian DeVries expects the Bulldogs to face a motivated St. Louis University team in tonight’s meeting in the Knapp Center. The Billikens are 5-4 but coming off a 101-62 loss at Southern Illinois.
