AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Freshman Madison Booker had 18 points and 10 assists and led a fourth-quarter serge as No. 5 Texas overwhelmed Iowa State 81-60 on Saturday for its sixth straight win.

Booker also made three steals. Shaylee Gonzales added 18 points for Texas (24-4, 11-3 Big 12), which outscored Iowa State 23-10 in the fourth quarter.

Shay Holle had 16 points, six assists and three steals. Taylor Jones grabbed 13 rebounds and made three blocks. Aaliyah Moore produced 12 points and seven rebounds, most of her contributions coming in the second half.

Freshman Audi Crooks scored 24 for Iowa State (14-10, 8-6). Addy Brown scored 11.

The 6-foot-3 Crooks scored 13 in the first half — 12 inside — enabling Iowa State to take a three-point lead midway through the second quarter. But Texas responded with a 15-2 push to finish the half with a 43-33 lead. Booker scored six of the 15 for Texas.

The Cyclones trailed by eight after three quarters, but Booker took over again. She made four free throws in three assists in the first three minutes of the fourth quarter. Holle scored seven in the period.

BIG PICTURE

Iowa State: After an inspiring victory over No. 7 Kansas State in double overtime on Wednesday in Ames, the Cyclones faced a big nemesis — the road. They’ve lost five straight road games. Texas was only the third opponent to outrebound Iowa State this season, and the Longhorns did it in a bit way — 38-27. Brown lead Iowa State with five rebounds.

Texas: The Longhorns win left them tied with West Virginia for second place in the Big 12 one game behind Oklahoma. West Virginia beat Oklahoma on Saturday in Morgantown. Texas plays at Oklahoma on Feb. 28.
