KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brittany Chambers scored 20 points and Jalana Childs added 14 to lead fourth-seeded Kansas State to a 56-53 victory over Iowa State, sending the Wildcats to the Big 12 women’s tournament semifinals against top-seeded Baylor.
Kansas State (21-9) was up by 13 when Hallie Christofferson hit back-to-back 3-pointers with 5:24 remaining. The Cyclones (22-10) closed within three before Chassidy Cole and Kelsey Bolte missed 3-pointers in the final 18 seconds.
Christofferson led the Cyclones with 18 points.
The Wildcats took a 30-25 halftime lead thanks largely to a strong start from Childs, who contributed 10 points before the break. Chambers, an All-Big 12 selection, had nine, and Branshea Brown scored seven.
Iowa State stayed close throughout the half as Christofferson came off the bench to score six points. The Cyclones received a 12-rebound performance from Chelsea Poppens.
