AMES, Iowa — Bridget Carleton scored 24 points to move into Iowa State's top 10, Kristin Scott added a career-high 21 and the No. 23 Cyclones turned back Arkansas 91-82 on Sunday in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.
Iowa State (6-1) led by 14 points late in the third quarter but a 7-0 run by the Razorbacks (5-2) cut the lead to 85-82 with 3:02 to play. Chelsea Dungee, who had a career-high 27 points, made a layup at the 3:10 mark then had a steal and was fouled. Dungee, who was 13 of 15 from the line, only made one free throw and Arkansas didn't score again.
Scott's 3-pointer at 2:11 ended a 0-for-5, almost 4-minute field-goal drought and Arkansas missed its final three shots with two turnovers.
Carleton, who also had 11 rebounds, moved past Stacy Frese (1,494) on the Cyclone scoring list. Alexa Middleton added 15 points and Ashley Joens 14.
Malica Monk added 22 points for Arkansas.
