Stanford Beats Iowa State in Overtime 87-81 on Niki Iafren's Shoulders Who scored 41 Points To Meet North Carolina State on the 29th in the Sweet 16


In the game against Iowa State looking to the second game in 2023 repeat prevent
The first quarter was not looking good for the Tree as Cyclone threes mostly through the net went
Brink guarding 6’3” Audi Crooks
Interfered or block almost every shot she took
In the second quarter Iafren was on fire
2 Iowa State free throws with 1 second left gave the Cyclones a 2 point lead to the locker room retire
The third and fourth quarter neither team could put the other away
The lead changed hands many times as Brink fouled out with 2 minutes to play
But Iafren continued to flame and the God of threes was coming the Tree’s way
Down by 64-63 Demetre with over a minute left nailed a three for another Stanford lead to display
No lead was safe and no lead would last
At 1:10 left Brown tied game with layup as she drove so fast
Both teams missed on shots but with 3 seconds left, ball was in Iafren’ s hands
Off balance her shot hit the rim and on the floor would land|
Iowa State without their star Crooks who missed 18 of the 21 shots she took
Went 3 for 3 at the 3 point line thought they would a flight to Portland book
But the Tree stole an inbound pass and iced some threes
87-81 so against North Carolina State on the 29th Stanford Women we will see.
