Kriener Plays Big in 75-59 Win

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands - Iowa State shot 51 percent from the floor en route to topping Indiana 75-59 in the consolation round of the Paradise Jam at the University of the Virgin Islands Saturday night.

The Cyclones (2-1) got 18 points and 11 rebounds from Lisa Kriener, although she played the majority of her 29 minutes in foul trouble. Anne O'Neil had 14 points for ISU, while Megan Ronhovde and Lyndsey Medders added 13 and 11 points, respectively.

Despite shooting 52 percent from the floor in the first half, Iowa State owned just a four-point edge at the half (30-26) thanks to five Indiana 3-pointers. The Hoosiers were held to 30.4 percent accuracy in the first stanza.

Indiana (2-2) got a layup from Jamey Chapman at 18:17 in the second half to narrow the gap to 31-28, but the Hoosiers would fail to score for over four minutes, giving Iowa State a 14-0 run and a lead the Cyclones would never relinquish.

Iowa State led IU on the boards 34-30 and forced 19 Hoosier turnovers. Indiana, led by Cyndi Valentin's 17 points, shot 33.3 percent for the game.

The Cyclones return home to face instate rival Iowa Wednesday in Ames and then travel to Wisconsin Dec. 7 for their third consecutive game against a Big Ten Conference team.
