The newbie is the first Hawkeye to have accomplished the feat since Sam Logic did it in 2015.
Iowa Guard Caitlin Clark, who is a newcomer to Iowa’s women’s basketball game, celebrates after Iowa defeated the State of Iowa on Wednesday December. 9.2020. The Hawkeyes defeated the Cyclones in a close game, 82-80. As Caitlin walked into the tunnel after defeating the Cyclones, he exclaimed, “This is a Hawkeye state. ”
The Iowa women’s basketball team’s 92-65 win over Western Illinois on Tuesday came as no surprise, but a memorable performance by a Hawkeye will set the game on the minds of Hawkeye fans for the foreseeable future.

She finished her triple-double with support from junior striker Logan Cook, who scored in the color.
« I knew I was close, but I didn’t know how close I was, » said Clark. « And I think because I didn’t shoot the ball very well tonight – it wasn’t until the fourth quarter that other teammates shot, increased their self-confidence, they definitely got simple buckets, that was certainly my mentality in the fourth quarter. « . ”
Clark’s triple-double is the first by a Hawkeye since Sam Logic on Jan.. March 2015 published a triple-double against Baylor.
« You are special, » said Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder. « They don’t come up very often and so I’m really excited about you as a newbie to be able to achieve this. She found other ways to contribute, which is great. ”
Bluder said she and the coaching team realized that Clark was approaching a triple-double. Bluder wanted Clark to do the trick, even though she didn’t tell her until she got it.
« I think she knew she could get it in this game, » said Bluder. “And she has high goals and high expectations of herself like champions, and she achieved it. ”
Clark had a bad day off the field, walking 3 out of 15. But she shot 6-of-7 off the free-throw line.
Junior Center Monika Czinano led the Hawkeyes with 19 points. The win was Iowa’s 40th. Right now in the Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

After trailing 16-13 with two minutes to go in the first quarter, the Hawkeyes fought back with points from several players and were between 41 and 29 at halftime.
« I think some of the transitional defense issues we continue to face, » said Bluder of giving up good shots. “We gave them three early, and then there was a point where my five were guarding a guard because they’re a little ball and that’s not always the easiest thing to do and I think this will be the last time that we see something like that. I think the rest of the people we’re going to play will be a lot more traditional. ”
With their leather necks behind them, the Hawkeyes face a series of 17 or 18 Big Ten games in a row, depending on whether Iowa’s December was canceled or not. 19 matchup with Ohio State is postponed.
