THE HAWKEYE LADIES FALL IN AMES. Lisa Bluder's team fell behind and couldn't catch up. Iowa State's ability to get to the free throw line and sink their shots was the difference. "We didn't play our best game" Lisa Bluder said following Iowa State's 83-70 win. The Hawkeyes were led by Sam Logic's 18 points and seven rebounds. Up next is Drake on December 21st.
