Bridget Carleton and the Iowa State women’s basketball team came up short in the Big 12 final.

The Cyclones fell 67-49 to Baylor Monday night. The Lady Bears are the #1 ranked team in the country and have won 23 straight.

The Chatham native had 13 points, six rebounds, and two assists for Iowa State in the loss.

The Cyclones now wait to see if they make the NCAA tournament, but their run to the Big 12 final should land them a spot in March Madness.
