AMES, Iowa -- Bridget Carleton and Kristin Scott each had a double-double to help No. 19 Iowa State beat Kansas 69-49 on Monday night in the regular-season finale for both teams.
Iowa State, which has won three games in a row and five of last six, secured the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the conference tournament, which begins Friday. The Cyclones (23-7, 13-5 Big 12), who tied the program's single-season records for regular season wins and conference wins, have just one win in the Big 12 tournament since losing to Baylor in the 2013 championship game.
Carleton finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds while Scott scored 12 with a career-high tying 14 boards.
Kansas (12-17, 2-16) led 18-17 at the end of the first quarter but Carleton opened the second with back-to-back layups and Iowa State never again trailed.
Christalah Lyons had 13 points for the Jayhawks, who shot just 27.5 percent (19 of 69) from the field.
Kansas has lost 10 consecutive games, tied with Brown for the fifth-longest active streak of its kind.
