Hawkeye State! - Iowa Women’s Hoops

Furious comeback for the Black and Gold


Things weren’t looking great for the Hawks last night against rival Iowa State. Coach Bluder’s squad was down 18 points to the Cyclones. It had a little of the Mudville 9 vibe going, but Mighty Caitlin didn’t strike out. Instead, she buried a three.

Game. Set. Match. Caitlin Clark finished the day with 34 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists. She has an exceptionally quick release on her jump shot. She also has a confidence that is off the charts. Other notables for the Hawkeyes: McKenna Warnock had 17 points and 7 rebounds, Monika Czinano (16/4), and Kate Martin (8/5). Iowa State’s Ashley Joens had 35 and 13 in a losing effort.

4th Quarter

At the start of the final period Iowa State was up 73-56. From that point on the Hawkeyes shot 6-9 from 3 (66.7%) while the Cyclones went 1-8 from deep (12.5%). That was the difference.

On to Michigan State

The Hawkeyes travel to Michigan State for a Saturday game (12/12). Iowa remains undefeated after upending ranked Iowa State. This Hawkeye team starts 1 first year player, 3 sophomores, and 1 junior. Big things at the moment for this team, and bigger things on the horizon.

More TV, Please

I would like to see more televised women’s games. These kids can play and it’s entertaining, quality basketball.
