    Excellent! I really don't know much about this year's team. Do we have a chance to make the dance? Is Ross a juco?

    Yes, we have a good chance for the dance, especially if we play like we have the last two games. And, yes, Ross is from Kirkwood JC.

    One game of that three game slump looks a little better - Colorado up on OU 48-46 with about 12 min. to play.

    Release: 01/20/2007
    LAWRENCE, Kan. – Toccara Ross led the Iowa State women’s basketball team with an impressive double-double performance as the Cyclones drilled Kansas, 75-48, at Allen Fieldhouse Saturday night in Big 12 Conference action.

    With the win, Iowa State improves to 15-4 overall and 3-3 in the Big 12 Conference. Kansas drops to 6-12 on the season and 0-5 in the league. The Cyclones remain on the road, traveling to Norman, Okla. to face the seventh-ranked Sooners at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Lloyd Noble Arena.

    Ross turned in 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting and collected a career-high 15 rebounds as she led the Cyclones. Nicky Wieben had 17 points, five rebounds and two blocked shots as the post players paced ISU to the win. Senior Lyndsey Medders had 12 points five assists and four rebounds, while shooting 5-of-7 from the floor.

    Kansas cut the Iowa State lead to eight points, 41-33, with five straight points to open the second half, but the Cyclones went on an 11-0 run, including four points by Wieben and five by Medders, to take a 19-point advantage, 52-33 with 15:39 remaining in the contest. The Cyclones kept the pressure on offensively and made a solid defensive stand as they went up by as many as 27 points on two occasions, including the final margin.

    The Cyclones played a strong first half, taking a 41-28 lead going into the locker room. Iowa State shot 64.3 percent from the field for the first 20 minutes, while holding the Jayhawks to 34.5 percent. The ISU post players turned in 23 points in the opening period, and Heather Ezell made three steals, converting two into layups on the other end. The Cyclones held Kansas without a field goal for over seven minutes from the 16:30 to the 9:15 mark of the first period.

    Iowa State shot 56.3 percent from the field and was 16-of-19 from the charity strip for the game. The Cyclones out rebounded KU, 42, 28, and held the Jayhawks to 27.9 percent shooting from the field. Kansas was led by Shaquina Mosley with 19 points, as the only Jayhawk to finish in double figures.

    Re: ISU defeats KU, 75-48

    With ten games remaining, in regular season, it will take a good effort to protect our home court. There are no easy games ahead. 5-5 gives us 20 wins, a top 40 rpi, .500 in conference and should get a bid with the conference rpi ranked 3rd or 4th. Painfully slowly I've noticed Pierson getting more minutes and making more contribution. Hopefully it will continue. That improved presence inside will get us over the top in some key games and maybe steal a win on the road.

    With OU on the docket we will need Ross to bang with the Paris girl like David and Goliath. Trying to describe the bulk of Courtney Paris is like former Chicago Cub Mark Grace describing Serina Williams "that girl is a dude."
