Shaylee Gonzales and Madison Booker each scored 18 points as the No. 5 Texas Longhorns raced past the Iowa State Cyclones 81-60 on Saturday in Austin, Texas.

Booker spun a game-high 10 assists for Texas (24-3, 11-3 Big 12), which also used 16 points from Shay Holle and 12 points from Aaliyah Moore to notch its sixth straight win.

The Longhorns led 55-50 late in the third quarter before shooting 10-for-15 over the game’s final 10:30 to pull away.

Audi Crooks dropped 24 points for Iowa State (14-10, 8-6), which was seeking its second straight win over a top-10 opponent. The Cyclones upset No. 7 Kansas State 96-93 in double overtime on Wednesday in Ames, Iowa.

Addy Brown finished with 11 points as Iowa State’s only other scorer to crack double figures on Saturday. The Cyclones were outshot 52.5 percent to 40.7 percent from the floor and were outscored 23-10 in the fourth quarter.

No. 7 Kansas State 60, UCF 58

Serena Sundell paired 10 points with five assists and found Jaelyn Glenn for the game-winning layup as the wobbling Wildcats overcame a slow start and avoided their fourth loss in five games by outlasting the Knights in Manhattan, Kan.

After Mya Burns’ layup evened the game at 58 with 6 seconds left, Sundell hurled the ball down the court to a wide-open Glenn, who converted to bump Kansas State ahead with 2 seconds remaining in regulation. UCF’s last-gasp half-court shot fell short.

Glenn finished with five points for the Wildcats (22-4, 11-3 Big 12), who were led by Gabby Gregory’s 19 points. Eliza Maupin had 15 points and a game-high 11 rebounds.

Kaitlin Peterson fueled the Knights (12-12, 3-11) in their second-straight loss with 26 points. Burns added 10 points and six boards. UCF trailed 27-24 at halftime and rallied from 11 down with 9:08 left to tie before Burns’ game-winner.

No. 17 Gonzaga 91, Pacific 78

The Bulldogs quelled any chance of an upset with an explosive third quarter to power past the Tigers in Stockton, Calif., for their 20th straight win, which clinched them at least a share of the West Coast Conference regular-season title.

Gonzaga (26-2, 13-0 WCC) trailed 48-45 early in the third period before surging ahead with a 17-0 run that Yvonne Ejim capped with a layup to push the Bulldogs’ lead to 62-48 with 6:18 left in the quarter. Gonzaga outscored Pacific 30-14 in the third quarter. The Bulldogs led by as many as 21 and hit 13 3-pointers compared to the Tigers’ three.

Ejim’s 28 points led all scorers, while Kaylynne Truong finished with 15. Kayleigh Truong had 12 and Eliza Hollingsworth bundled 12 with nine rebounds for Gonzaga.

Elizabeth Elliott paced Pacific (14-11, 6-6) with 14 points in only 17 minutes as the Tigers lost for the fourth time in five games.

No. 25 Princeton 70, Yale 25

Kaitlyn Chen scored 18 points as the Tigers pushed their winning streak to 15 games by stifling the Bulldogs in New Haven, Conn.

Madison St. Rose added 10 points as Princeton (20-3, 10-0 Ivy League) forced 27 turnovers and surrendered its season low in points. The Tigers built a 32-15 halftime lead before blowing the game open with a 28-6 third quarter to send Yale (6-17, 3-7) to its second straight loss.

Jenna Clark’s eight points led the Bulldogs, who shot 9 of 35 from the field (25.7 percent) and missed six of their seven 3-point attempts. Yale didn’t score more than eight points in any quarter en route to its lowest point total in a game this season.
