Iowa’s Caitlin Clark had 35 points and tallied a career-high seven steals to lead the team, along with 10 assists and six rebounds.
This was Clark’s 39th career 30-point game, which put her in the top spot for most 30-point games by a D-I player over the last 25 seasons.
“We came out playing Iowa basketball — high assists, low turnovers,” said Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder. “I thought our energy level was a lot better out there tonight.
We were more focused. We scored the most points in program history in the first half, that was pretty fun. Obviously, we shot the ball pretty well, but I was happy with our 3-point defense.
I thought that was big for us. Kate Martin had a special game for us and played tonight like she was playing in the summer, and I love to see that.
Caitlin had a double-double in 30 minutes of play, and also broke the NCAA record for most 30-point games. I love the fact we forced 22 turnovers tonight as well.”
