AUSTIN, Texas — The No. 4 University of Texas women's basketball team put away Iowa State, 75-54, Wednesday night in Austin and improved to 14-0 overall, giving the Longhorns their best start since 1985-6. UT also improved to 3-0 in Big 12 play, defeating the Cyclones for the first time since February 9, 2014.

(Iowa State) has beaten us the last three consecutive times, and I’ve only beaten them once in my entire career,” senior center Imani Boyette said. “We knew they snapped our winning streak last year, and we thought that this would be a real ‘gut check.’ Every game is big in the Big 12, but (the Cyclones) do well when we guard bad. We knew that this would be lockdown defensively.”
