No. 22 Kansas St. 80, Iowa St. 49

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kimberly Dietz scored 16 points and Marlies Gipson had 12 points and 13 rebounds Wednesday night to lead No. 22 Kansas State to an 80-49 win over Iowa State.

Shalee Lehning added 12 points and 10 assists for the Wildcats (13-5, 5-0 Big 12), who won their eighth straight and moved to 5-0 in Big 12 play for the first time since 2002-03.

Kansas State controlled the game from the opening tip, taking a 42-22 halftime lead and then opening the second half on a 17-0 run.

Dietz scored the last seven points of that stretch, hitting back-to-back layups and then sinking a deep 3-pointer from the top of the key to put the Wildcats up 59-22.

Iowa State struggled all night on offense, committing eight turnovers during Kansas State's second-half spurt.

Kelsey Bolte had 17 points to lead the Cyclones (12-6, 1-4), who dropped their third straight.

Gipson controlled the inside against the undersized Cyclones, who were without starters Toccara Ross and Nicky Wieben, both of whom are out for the season with torn ACLs.

Iowa State, which entered the game ranked third in the nation in 3-pointers made per game, hit just 4-of-13 against the Wildcats.

Meanwhile, eight different Kansas State players hit a 3-pointer and the team finished 12-of-21 from long range. Everyone on the Wildcats' roster scored at least one field goal.

Kansas State has won its last 12 home games by an average of 26 points.
