    ISU falls to Baylor as injuries continue

    DMR LINK

    Ames, Ia. - Iowa State forward Amanda Nisleit spent the second half of Saturday's 59-54 women's basketball loss to Baylor on the sidelines, her right foot dangling in the air when she had to stand.

    That symbolized a painful game for the Cyclones (16-10, 5-8 Big 12 Conference), who were hobbled with another injury and another close loss to the ninth-ranked Lady Bears (23-3, 11-2) at Hilton Coliseum.

    Nisleit, who made a career-high four 3-pointers in the first half, left the game with 18:01 left in the second half after landing on the side of her right ankle. Her injury, following season-ending knee injuries to Nicky Wieben and Toccara Ross, left the Cyclones with a five-person rotation and eight healthy scholarship players.

    Despite that, Iowa State led for much of the second half and was up 54-52 after Alison Lacey's pull-up jumper from the left wing with 2:40 to play.

    But Iowa State didn't score after that. Following four 3-point losses in the Big 12, Saturday's five-point setback stung.
    ................................
    While the extent of Nisleit's injury was unknown after the game, Fennelly said he would be surprised if she can play Wednesday at Missouri.

    "She's as tough a player as we have and for her not to be able to go back in, it has to be pretty bad," he said.

    If Amanda is unable to play Wed, then our post season glimmer will come down to a good run in the Big12 tourney. As short handed as we have been, losing another player was the last thing we needed this season.

    Bill wasn't very optimistic in the post game on the radio. Here's hoping she heals fast. I think we may win that game if she doesn't get hurt.

    Too bad Rachel Pierson thought she needed to leave. She could've gotten a lot of playing time this year.

    I don't think you can call it "a five-person rotation".
