Women’s College Basketball: Clark Earns Another B1G Weekly Honor

Iowa City — Iowa sophomore Caitlin Clark has been named the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, the league announced.

Clark, a Des Moines, Iowa, native registered a career-high 44 points in the Hawkeyes’ win over Evansville on Sunday, breaking the Carver-Hawkeye Arena record that had stood for nearly 22 years.

Clark also broke the 1,000-career point barrier, becoming the fastest Big Ten women’s basketball athlete and the eighth NCAA athlete to meet the mile marker in 40 games or less.

Iowa returns to action this Thursday at home against Northwestern.

Tip is set for 7:00 p.m.
