Cyclone women drop third straight

The Iowa State women’s basketball (14-7, 5-5 Big 12) team dropped its third straight game. This defeat came at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners (14-7, 8-2 Big 12) by a 75-66 final in Norman. 

Senior point guard Nikki Moody scored a career-high 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting and dished out five assists. The scoring output bested her previous high of 24 against Stony Brook earlier this season. 

The Cyclones trailed by as much as 20 during the second half. Moody was the only Cyclone to score in double-figures.

The Cyclones will be back in action on Saturday when the West Virginia Mountaineers invade Hilton Coliseum for a 6 p.m. tip.
