Brynn Williamson chipped in 12 points, all from 3-point range, and a team-high seven rebounds for the Cyclones (16-5, 7-4), who shot 49 percent from the floor and were 10 of 24 from beyond the arc. Moody dished out seven assists and had four steals.
Empress Davenport had 13 points for the Longhorns (9-12, 2-8), and Celina Rodrigo and Chassidy Fussell scored 10 apiece. Texas, which entered the game ranked eighth in Division I with a plus-10.9 rebounding margin, was outrebounded 32-31.
The Longhorns scored the game’s first basket, but that was their only lead. Texas closed within 25-24 on Fussell’s fast-break layup with 4:27 left before halftime, but Iowa State closed the half on a 14-0 run and cruised from there.
