Women Cruise to Exhibition Victory

<b>AMES, IA --</b> Iowa State had a new look despite its seasoned personnel in a 104-45 exhibition win against William Penn Sunday in Hilton Coliseum. ISU head coach Bill Fennelly showcased new offensive and defensive looks to top his alma mater.

"Overall I'm pleased with our effort and I was glad to get everyone in," Fennelly said. "The defense showed a lot of energy out there and our point guard play was really solid."

Katie Robinette had 22 points in the first half, hitting 9-of-13 from the floor while adding seven boards. The senior forward finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds in just 20 minutes of action.

"Katie put on a show," Fennelly said. "She understands how important she is to the team. I'm proud of everyone, but I'm especially proud of her."

The Cyclones shot 46.7 percent before the break, taking a 52-26 lead into the locker room. ISU outscored the Lady Statesmen 26-2 over the first nine minutes of the second half, giving Fennelly a chance to clear the bench.

Iowa State dominated William Penn on the boards 53-32. The Cyclones pulled down 21 offensive rebounds despite 47.4 percent shooting in the game, led by Robinette's eight offensive caroms. Cyclone senior Mary Fox added 12 points, seven rebounds, three blocks and three steals, while sophomore Megan Ronhovde had 11 points and six rebounds for ISU.

WPU was led by Ciara Laboy, who hit 6-of-9 shots for 13 points off the bench. The Lady Statesmen shot 31.1 percent for the game after making just 20 percent from the floor in the second half. ISU forced 27 WPU turnovers using both zone and man-to-man defenses.

The Cyclones play host to Northwest Missouri State Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. in their final exhibition of the season.
