A 20-point comeback effort from Massachusetts was cut short as Iowa State women’s basketball held on to a 76-71 victory on Sunday in the championship game of the Gulf Coast Showcase.

After nearly a week off, the No.14 Iowa State women’s basketball squad was back in Hilton Coliseum to take on the South Dakota State Jackrabbits on Monday. The Jackrabbits got the best of the Cyclones last season, winning 76-69 in Brookings, South Dakota. But not this time.

On a bitter snowy day in Iowa City, the Iowa State cross country program competed in the Midwest Regional. The Cyclones crowned two runners the Regional title, Callie Logue for the women and Wesley Kiptoo for the men. The women’s race began at 11 a.m., with the athletes running a 6k. The men’s race began at noon, with the athletes running a 10k. 

Following a 3-1 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners Friday,  the Cyclones were back in action Saturday with a chance to sweep the weekend and create some distance in the Big 12. They were able to do just that, claiming another 3-1 victory in Norman.

Once again without Marija Popovic and Eleanor Holthaus, the Iowa State volleyball team knew that it would be a tall task to take down Oklahoma, but the players had confidence that they could get the job done all week. And then, Iowa State ended up topping the Sooners three sets to one Friday night in Norman.
