ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands (AP) -Lauren Mansfield scored 20 points, at one point hitting four straight 3-pointers, and No. 19 Iowa State rallied to beat 21st-ranked TCU 64-59 on Friday.
Kelsey Bolte added 19 points, hitting five 3-pointers of her own, for the Cyclones (5-0). The pair hit 11 of Iowa State's 14 3-pointers.
Trailing 50-43 with 9:41 left, Mansfield started connecting from behind the arc. She had a 12-0 run, making four straight 3s that gave the Cyclones a 55-50 lead with 5:23 left.
Helena Sverrisdottir's layup cut TCU's deficit to three, but then Bolte made a 3-pointer that made it 58-52. TCU wasn't done as Emily Carter answered with a three-point play, but it wasn't enough to get the Horned Frogs the victory.
Iowa State held on down the stretch for the victory.
Carter finished with 21 points and Sverrisdottir added 14 for TCU (3-2).
