Mar 18, 2012 - 2:13 AM Ames, IA (Sports Network) - Lydia Bauer and Sarah Eichler scored 16 points apiece as the seventh-seeded Green Bay Phoenix took care of the 10th-seeded Iowa State Cyclones 71-57 in the first round of the NCAA Women's Tournament at James H. Hilton Coliseum.

Also scoring double figures for Green Bay (31-1) was Adrian Ritchie with 15 points and Julie Wojta with 14 points.

For Iowa State (18-13), Hallie Christofferson led the way with 12 points, while Lauren Mansfield and Chelsea Poppens scored 11 points each. Brynn Williamson and Nikki Moody chipped in with 10 points apiece.
