Less than four minutes into Saturday’s Big 12 quarterfinal, Iowa State had connected on two 3-pointers, seemingly picking up right where it left off the last time it faced Oklahoma State.

“We gave up three open threes in the first three or four minutes of the game, and you can't do that against Iowa State,” said Cowgirls coach Jim Littell.

OSU fixed that problem, though, allowing the Cyclones only five 3-pointers the rest of the game and winning 67-57 to advance to the Big 12 Tournament semifinals Sunday.

OSU sophomore guard Brittney Martin led her team with 17 points and 11 rebounds, and guards Brittany Atkins and Tiffany Bias added 14 points apiece for the Cowgirls (23-7 overall, 11-7 Big 12).

Oklahoma State lost its last meeting with Iowa State on Feb. 26 in Stillwater, where the Cyclones knocked down 15 of 36 attempts from beyond the arc.

Saturday, Iowa State hit just 7 of its 25 3-point tries.

Senior center Hallie Christofferson led Iowa State (10-10, 9-9 Big 12) with 21 points and 11 rebounds.
