College Basketball- The University of Iowa women’s basketball team is off to one of their best starts in program history as the #4 ranked Hawkeyes are 13-1 entering tonight’s conference matchup with Michigan State. A big reason for their success has been senior phenom Caitlin Clark.
Clark just nabbed her 23rd Big Ten Player of the Week honor, which ties the conference record held by former Hawkeye Megan Gustafson.
Clark dominated over the winter break with wins over Loyola Chicago and Minnesota. Against the Ramblers, the senior tallied her 13th career triple-double and against the Gophers she cashed in for 35 points and 10 assists as she is now the career record holder in assists in both Iowa’s and Big Ten’s history.
Making headlines in Ames is Audi Crooks as she recorded her second Big 12 women’s basketball Freshman of the Week honors. The freshman dominated against Oklahoma State with 21 points and seven rebounds. Crooks is averaging 16.6 points and six rebounds per game.
The Cyclones take on Kansas tomorrow at home at 6:30 pm.
