    MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Shalee Lehning scored 18 of her 22 points in the second half and Kansas State (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 17 AP) outlasted No. 20 Iowa State for a 59-52 victory on Saturday.

    Marlies Gipson added 13 points for the Wildcats (15-1, 2-1 Big 12).

    Kansas State opened the game with a 6-0 run, but the Cyclones came back to take a one-point lead midway through the first half. The Wildcats then went on a late run to take a 23-19 lead at the break.

    Lehning caught fire early in the second half, reeling off 13 points in the first 5:52 to extend Kansas State's lead to 10. Iowa State narrowed the gap to four with 1:50 remaining, but a 3-pointer by Lehning sparked a 5-2 run that stifled the rally.

    Kelsey Bolte led the Cyclones (13-4, 1-2) with 20 points and Alison Lacey added 13 points.
