The Iowa women's basketball team ran their record to 2-0 Thursday night at Carver-Hawkeye with a blowout victory over Evansville. In the process, the Hawkeyes scored the most points in a single game in the history of the program.
Iowa's All-American guard Caitlin Clark (#22 below) had the 27th double-double of her Hawkeye career with 26 points and 12 assists, in less than 22 minutes of action. Her behind-the-back dribble had Evansville defender A'Niah Griffin (#21) scrambling to recover.
Center Monika Czinano (#25 below) put in 23 points and grabbed seven rebounds, in just over 19 minutes.
Hannah Stuelke, a Cedar Rapids Washington prep and first-year player at Iowa, has played 28:06 total minutes in the Hawkeyes' first two games of the year. In that time, the 3-time first-team all-starter is 11 of 14 from the field, good for 78.6 percent. That's tops on the team. Stuelke (below) has also grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out 4 assists, blocked a shot, and has two steals. Her 24 points through two games are third-best on the team, behind only Clark (46) and Czinano (33).
Thursday night, Stuelke scored 14 points in under 14 minutes on the court, as Iowa beat Evansville 115-62. It was the most points in a single game in the history of the Iowa women's basketball program. Iowa's 61 points in the 3rd and 4th quarters combined were also the most Iowa has scored in a single half.
McKenna Warnock (#14 below) chipped in 15 points in the game, including three more 3-pointers, giving her 126 triples in her career.
The winningest coach in Iowa women's hoops history, Lisa Bluder was all smiles after the game.
