LOS ANGELES (AP) — Napheesa Collier had 26 points and 14 rebounds, Bridget Carleton added 14 points and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Los Angeles Sparks 67-61. Minnesota (4-8) won its third game in nine days against Los Angeles, with the two previous wins coming by five-points apiece. Collier sank a jumper from the free-throw line, following an offensive rebound, to give Minnesota a 64-61 lead with 1:26 left. Neither team would score again until Collier’s free throw with 8.7 seconds left for a four-point lead. Trailing 64-61, Los Angeles called a timeout with 24.1 seconds left to set up an offensive play. Tiffany Mitchell intercepted a pass and raced the other way, and Minnesota secured it at the stripe.




AMES — Iowa State basketball coach T.J. Otzelberger says summer sets the tone and workouts are underway in Ames as the Cyclones look to build on back-to-back trips to the NCAA Tournament. Otzelberger says summer workouts have been a big part of their success the past two years.

The Cyclones are known for defense and toughness and Otzelberger says this is when it starts. ISU will close the summer with a trip to the Bahamas.

Otzelberger says how they do things in the summer is more important than what they do.

A highly ranked recruiting class is part of a large group of incoming players.

Senior forward Tre King says workouts are always an adjustment for the freshmen.

Ames native Tamin Lipsey started all 33 games last season at point guard and was named to the Big 12 All-Freshman team. He is now one of the veterans.

The Cyclones finished 19-14 last season and lost to Pitt in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
