OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Heather Ezell and Alison Lacey scored 11 points apiece as Iowa State beat 13th-ranked Texas A&M 57-to-51.
They broke a late tie to advance to the conference title game for the first time since they won Big 12 championships in 2000 and 2001.
The Cyclones (25-7) outscored the top-seeded Aggies 8-to-1 while Lyndsey Medders was saddled with foul trouble.
As Medders looked on, Nicky Wieben hit a turnaround jumper in the lane to put Iowa State up 49-to-47. The Aggies (24-6) didn't get another field goal the rest of the way.
Texas A-and-M lost for only the second time in its last 13 games, with both defeats coming at the hands of the surging Cyclones.
