AMES, Iowa (AP) — Chelsea Poppens had 22 points and 11 rebounds, Nikki Moody added 12 points and 10 assists, and No. 23 Iowa State rolled to an 83-68 victory over Kansas on Wednesday night.

Hallie Christofferson scored 20 points and Anna Prins had 19 for the Cyclones (20-6, 11-5 Big 12), who used a 13-0 second-half run to break open a close game. Iowa State outrebounded Kansas 43-29.

Angel Goodrich had 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the Jayhawks (16-11, 7-9), and Monica Engelman scored 20 points.

The Jayhawks pulled within 60-57 on Asia Boyd’s layup with 11:04 to play, but Christofferson hit a 3-pointer to spark Iowa State’s 13-0 run and put the game out of reach. Poppens capped the run with two free throws, and Kansas never got closer than seven points down after that.

Kansas still holds a 45-29 edge in the all-time series between the schools.
