ISU women's basketball schedule finalized

Iowa State's 2005-06 women's basketball schedule was finalized with the addition of six televised games, including two Fox Sports Net broadcasts and four Mediacom telecasts.

After a pair of exhibition tuneups, the Cyclones boast 14 home games in Hilton Coliseum. ISU will face all three instate foes, including a road trip to Drake Dec. 4, a home matchup against Iowa Dec. 8 and a contest against Northern Iowa as a part of the Mediacom Cyclone Capital Classic doubleheader with the Cyclone men in Des Moines' Wells Fargo Arena.

The Cyclones' travel plans include trips to Minneapolis for an Interstate-35 matchup with Minnesota and the Junkanoo Jam in Freeport, Grand Bahama, where ISU joins N.C. State, Rutgers and North Florida in the Freeport Division bracket.

The perennially strong Big 12 Conference slate includes home games against 2005 national champion Baylor (Jan. 25), Oklahoma and Texas Tech from the league's southern division, and all five northern division foes.
