UW Green Bay women roll past Iowa State 71-57



 AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Lydia Bauer and Sarah Eichler each scored 16 points and seventh-seeded Green Bay rolled over host Iowa State 71-57 in the NCAA women's tournament on Saturday.

   Adrian Ritchie added 15 for the Phoenix (31-1), who'll take on second-seeded Kentucky in the second round Monday night.

   Green Bay blitzed through the Cyclones in their own gym, running out to a 42-23 halftime lead and barely looking back.

   Iowa State got within 10 with 3:01 left, but the Phoenix held on to reach the round of 32 for the third year in a row.

   Hallie Christofferson led five in double figures with 12 points for Iowa State (18-13), which committed 30 turnovers and lost its NCAA tournament opener for the second straight year.
