AMES, Iowa \u2014 No. 22 Iowa State held Tynice Martin to a season-low six points and dominated West Virginia 77-61 to break a third-place tie in the Big 12 standings.\r\n\r\n\u201cThey wanted the game more than we did, and I thought we came out flat,\u201d said Mountaineers coach Mike Carey.\r\n\r\nAvenging last month\u2019s upset loss in Morgantown, the Cyclones (18-5, 8-3) got 23 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists from guard Bridget Carleton, the conference\u2019s top scorer. Center Kristin Scott poured in a game-high 29 points \u2014 including 25 in the second half \u2014 and added eight rebounds.\r\n\r\n\u201cAt West Virginia, they challenged us and we didn\u2019t respond, but I think we responded better today,\u201d Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly said.\r\n\r\nWest Virginia freshman guard Madisen Smith, playing 40 minutes for the second straight game, scored a season-high 24 points, but the Mountaineers (16-6, 7-4) saw their four-game win streak snapped.\r\n\r\nThe league\u2019s fourth-leading scorer, Martin came in averaging 17.9 points per game but shot 2-of-15 overall and missed all six of her 3-point tries. The junior guard failed to score in double figures for only the second time this season and the fourth time in her last 55 games.\r\n\r\nIowa State\u2019s Madison Wise did a clamp-down job defending Martin, though many times they sent two defenders at her.\r\n\r\n\u201cMattie\u2019s main thing is to defend. She likes it, she\u2019s good at it, and it\u2019s changed our team,\u201d Fennelly said.\r\n\r\nAfter leading 33-26 at halftime, Iowa State seized control with a 28-11 edge in the their quarter. Scott scored 15 in the period.\r\n\r\nNaomi Davenport chipped in 14 points for West Virginia, which committed 22 fouls to the Cyclones\u2019 12.\r\n\r\nCarelton made 9-of-10 at the foul line where Iowa State finished 17-of-22.\r\n\r\n\u201cCarelton hesitates, she changes speeds, and when our players relax she turns the corner,\u201d Carey said. \u201cShe knows how to play the game.\u201d\r\n\r\nWest Virginia shot 37 percent from the floor and made 9-of-27 from 3-point range, with Smith sinking 5-of-10.
