AMES – The No. 11 Iowa State women’s basketball team (14-0, 3-0 Big 12) squares off with No. 15 Oklahoma State (13-1, 2-1 Big 12) on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. The top-15 showdown is the first in Hilton Coliseum since 2002.

Iowa State’s projected starting lineup will be: Hallie Christofferson, Brynn Williamson, Nikki Moody, Jadda Buckley and Seanna Johnson.

The Cyclones’ 14-game winning streak to kick off the season is the longest in school history and also sets the school record for a program-best start.

The Cyclones are 3-0 in Big 12 play for the first time since the 2000-01 season. Iowa State has held records of 5-0 four times and 6-0 once, making this the sixth-best start in conference play in school history.

Saturday’s game against No. 15 Oklahoma State marks the first top 15 showdown in Hilton Coliseum since 2002 when No. 10 Iowa State fell to No. 8 Baylor 91-95. Head Coach Bill Fennelly is 9-2 against Oklahoma State at home.
