WBB: Cyclones open USA Basketball 3×3 tournament with win over Tennessee

Four of Iowa State’s women’s basketball cornerstone players took the court at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday afternoon, beating Tennessee 21-13 to open its USA Basketball 3×3 tournament run.

The Cyclones opened the game with a flurry of long range shots, and utilized them to run away with the victory over the Lady Volunteers.

Coach Bill Fennelly watched from afar as his team moved to 1-0 to begin pool play.

Iowa State will play at least two more games on Saturday, facing off with Athletes Unlimited at 9:10 a.m. CT and Hoopers United at 4:10 p.m. to round out pool play.

If the Cyclones win their pool, they will head straight into quarterfinal competition, taking off the rest of the night and playing at 9:10 a.m. on Sunday.

All of the action can be streamed live on the USA Basketball website at usab.com/live.
