MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Hallie Christofferson scored 23 points and grabbed seven boards in No. 24 Iowa State's 53-49 win over West Virginia on Saturday.
Nikki Moody and Chelsea Poppens added 10 apiece for the Cyclones, who snapped a two-game losing streak.
Iowa State (14-4, 5-3 Big 12), which trailed 37-25 35 seconds into the second half, shot just 39 percent (16-of-41) from the field, but nine of those shots came from 3-point range. The Cyclones rallied to tie the game 43-all with 6:24 left to play on Christofferson's trey.
Ayana Dunning scored West Virginia's next six points to make it 51-49 with a little over 2 minutes remaining, but the Mountaineers (11-8, 3-5) missed their next four shots and two free throws as Iowa State pulled away.
