— Chelsea Poppens had 22 points and 11 rebounds, Nikki Moody added 12 points and 10 assists, and No. 23 Iowa State rolled to an 83-68 victory over Kansas on Wednesday night.

Hallie Christofferson scored 20 points and Anna Prins had 19 for the Cyclones (20-6, 11-5 Big 12), who used a 13-0 second-half run to break open a close game. Iowa State outrebounded Kansas 43-29.

Angel Goodrich had 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the Jayhawks (16-11, 7-9), and Monica Engelman scored 20 points.

The Jayhawks pulled within 60-57 on Asia Boyd’s layup with 11:04 to play, but Christofferson hit a three-pointer to spark Iowa State’s 13-0 run and put the game out of reach. Poppens capped the run with two free throws, and KU never got closer than seven after that.

Iowa State outscored Kansas 36-16 in the paint.

“We were good in stretches, but the bad stretches lasted too long,” head coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “Both (Angel and Monica) played confidently, but we just didn’t have enough around them tonight. We really shot it and had good rhythm (early on) and I thought we were a lot better, but we had too many stretches with not much (offense) inside and defensive lapses.”
