AMES, Iowa (AP) — Hallie Christofferson was 11 of 16 from the field and a perfect 10-for-10 shooting free throws in scoring 33 points and leading Number 20 Iowa State to a 79-52 win over Cal State Fullerton on Sunday afternoon. Christofferson added eight rebounds to her game totals while Nicole Blaskowsky poured in 16 points and Seanna Johnson grabbed 12 rebounds in the Cyclone effort.

ISU (8-0) never trailed CS Fullerton (1-7), but only led by two (27-25) at intermission after the Titans fell behind by as much as seven in the half. Iowa State entered the second half more determined and stretched the lead to a buzzer-ending 27 points, scoring 52 second half points and improving their shooting performance to 51 percent for the game.

Hailey King scored 13 and Alex Thomas 10 had 10 points for the Titans. Iowa State will host Number 25 neighbor Iowa next Sunday.
