COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) – Sydney Carter made two free throws with 2.4 seconds left to lift No. 14 Texas A&M to a 66-64 win over Iowa State on Sunday.  Iowa State’s desperation heave down the court as time expired was grabbed by A&M’s Kelsey Bone.   The Cyclones’ possession before Carter’s free throws ended when Nikki Moody, apparently thinking the game clock was the shot clock, didn’t try to get a shot off as the shot clock expired with 7.3 seconds remaining. Carter went 0 for 4 on Sunday and her only points came on the late free throws. Adaora Elonu had 19 points and Tyra White added 14 for Texas A&M (14-5, 5-3 Big 12). The Cyclones (11-8, 2-6) were led by Chelsea Poppens, who had 22 points and nine rebounds.
