AMES, Iowa – Iowa State’s women’s basketball team (6-3 overall, 0-0 Big 12) defeated Arkansas-Pine Bluff (3-6, 0-0 SWAC), 70-41 at Hilton Coliseum on Sunday. Former Mason City Mohawk Jadda Buckley recorded 7 assists in the victory.

Freshman Bridget Carleton poured in 22 points, including a career-high six three-pointers.

The Cyclones closed the first quarter on 10-2 run, making their final six attempts from the field, to take a 23-18 lead after 10 minutes. The run was sparked by a pair of three-pointers from Carleton late in the quarter after Iowa State had started the game 1-of-7 from long distance. Seanna Johnson led the way for ISU with seven points and three rebounds in the first stanza.

The second quarter was the Bridget Carleton show. The freshman splashed home four three-pointers in a four-minute stretch to put the Cyclones up 39-23. The Chatham, Ontario, native, put up 14 in the quarter, and ended the first half with 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field. Iowa State entered the halftime locker room with a 43-28 advantage.

The Cyclone defense was the story in the third quarter, holding the Golden Lions to just six points on 3-of-12 shooting in the stanza. It was a balanced ISU offensive effort in the third, with five Cyclones scoring in the period, led by four points each from Claire Ricketts and Meredith Burkhall. Iowa State led 57-34 after three quarters of play.

Iowa State was able to go to its bench for the majority of the fourth quarter, and despite struggling from the field, held the Golden Lions to just seven points in the quarter. The Iowa State defense surrendered just 13 points after halftime and held Arkansas-Pine Bluff to 32.7 percent shooting for the game.

Freshman Bridget Carleton was a one-man wrecking crew early on, helping the Cyclones take control of the game during a stretch in the first and second quarters in which she made 6-of-7 attempts from three-point range. She finished with 22 points, three rebounds and two assists on 8-of-15 shooting.
