AMES, Iowa (Ticker) -- Angie Welle scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, leading fourth seed Iowa State to an 85-70 victory over Oregon in a second-round Mideast Region battle of the NCAA Women's Tournament.

Iowa State (24-7) advanced to the regional semifinals for the first time. It will play top-seeded Connecticut on Saturday in Cincinnati.

Iowa State's Desiree Francis came off the bench to score 13 points in the first half and finished the game with 19.
