Ryan knocked down four 3-pointers in the first half, sparking Iowa State to a 42-28 lead at intermission, hitting 61.5% from the field in the first half, including 6 of 10 from behind the arc as a team.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Paisley Harding scored 22 points and No. 16 BYU erased a 15-point halftime deficit by holding Gonzaga to just 15 second-half points in a victory that handed the Bulldogs their first West Coast Conference loss.

Kayleigh Truong scored seven of Gonzaga’s 20 first-quarter points as the Bulldogs leapt to a 20-10 advantage after one and a 35-20 advantage at intermission. BYU came alive in the third quarter, with Harding pumping in 12 points as the Cougars (19-2, 7-1) outscored Gonzaga 19-3 to take the lead, 39-38, heading into the fourth quarter and cruised to the finish.
