David Merrill

Iowa State continues its exhibition play at 5:30 p.m. Sunday with a game against Rockhurst. The Cyclones won their first exhibition game 87-33 against Coe College.

Every player on the Cyclones’ roster scored at least once, but junior forward Chelsea Poppens led the way with 14 points. Freshman guard Nikki Moody contributed 12 points.

Moody contributed more than just points to the statline. She also recorded five assists, three steals and two blocks in her 25 minutes of play.

Moody is one freshman who coach Bill Fennelly alluded to having the chance to earn significant playoff time. While senior Chassidy Cole will be starting at the point guard position, Moody proved she can be effective when in the game. 

Junior center Anna Prins put in 11 points of her own.

Rockhurst lost its first exhibition game against Creighton, falling 83-26. Susan Hohenadel was Rockhurst’s leading scorer with seven points.

Iowa State plays Houston Baptist in its season opener next Friday.
