Undefeated starts are nice. Let’s keep this one going against in-state rival Drake tonight, shall we? Alright let’s go
The first quarter started out as one might expect this year for the Cyclones, with a small deficit that it seems Iowa State just can’t dig out of. As opposed to previous iterations of this start, however, it wasn’t due to the Cyclones missing shots. Drake just hit more of them. The Bulldogs jumped all over the Cyclones to start, going up 10-3 before the Joens sisters (Ashley and Aubrey) rattled off 8 straight points to give Iowa State the 1-point lead.
