Southern could not keep up with the Joens tonight.

Ashley Joens showed no sign of a sophomore slump tonight opening with Iowa State’s first 10 points.

While this was a bright spot for the Cyclones, the Lady Jaguars enjoyed 10 Iowa State turnovers in the opening stanza. Southern got within eight with an Alyric Scott jumper with 7:14 left in the second quarter, only to see Iowa State go on a 10-0 run.

The Cyclones enjoyed a 37-17 intermission lead.

Southern had their best quarter in the third, only being out scored by Iowa State 14-17.

Southern’s Brittany Rose’s ten points kept Southern within growling distance, but the 20.9% shooting night doomed the Lady Jaguars.

Iowa State takes on Drake next at the Knapp Center.
