West Virginia upsets No. 13 Iowa State,

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Linda Stepney scored 16 points, grabbed seven rebounds and West Virginia used a 13-point first-half lead to knock off No. 13 Iowa State 73-59 Wednesday night — the second straight year the Mountaineers have beaten a ranked Cyclones squad at Ames.

West Virginia (15-2, 4-1 Big 12) hit seven 3-pointers in the first half and were 12 of 30 overall.

Iowa State (14-2, 3-2) cut the lead to six, 59-53 on a 3-pointer by Jadda Buckley with 6:57 left to play, but Stepney scored a layup and 3-pointer back-to-back to push the lead back to 11 points and was 4 of 4 from the free throw line in the final 1:28 to put the game away.

Bria Holmes and Christal Caldwell finished with 12 and 11 points, respectively, for the Mountaineers.

Hallie Christofferson had 21 points to lead the Cyclones, which lost its second straight game. Buckley added another 15.
