LAST TIME OUT
Iowa rebounded from a pair of road losses to top ten opponents (Penn State and Minnesota) with a 72-65 triumph over Indiana on its home floor Thursday. The Hawkeyes led by as many as 19 points the second half en route to victory.
Ten Hawkeyes tallied at least one point. Kristi Faulkner paced the Hawkeyes scoring a game and season-high 27 points (11-15 FG, 3-3 FT). Faulkner’s basket with 3:37 left in the second half was her 1,000th career point at Iowa. The senior is only the 20th Hawkeye to collect 1,000 points in an Iowa uniform.
Jennie Lillis added 15 points (5-16 FG, 3-3 FT), four steals, four assists and collected a team-high eight rebounds. Jamie Cavey contributed 10 points (5-8 FG) and five rebounds, while Crystal Smith sparked the Hawkeyes off the bench again scoring seven points and collecting four steals. Smith also tied a career high with six rebounds, five of which were offensive. Indiana posted Hawkeye opponent season lows in free throws made (4), attempted (12) and percentage (.333).
Jenny DeMuth was Indiana’s only player to tally double figures (26). Sarah McKay pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds.
The Hawkeyes turned 27 Hoosier turnovers into 23 points. Iowa also out-scored Indiana in the paint (38-34).
EXCITING ACTION EARLY
Six of Iowa’s first 15 games this year have been decided by seven points or less, including one double overtime thriller. Iowa had six games decided by seven points or less all of last year. In addition, the Hawkeyes’ game vs. Creighton was an overtime thriller, but the Bluejays pulled away in the extra session and won by 12.
NUMBER OF THE WEEK – – 3
Iowa and Illinois are the only Big Ten schools to have three student-athletes ranked in the top 15 in scoring. Iowa’s three players include: Jamie Cavey (6th), Jennie Lillis (9th) and Kristi Faulkner (12th). Illinois’ three athletes include: Angelina Williams (8th), Aminata Yanni (11th) and Tiffanie Guthrie (15th).
Sunday is Wisconsin’s fourth game in eight days. The Badgers defeated Illinois (66-57) Tuesday and IUFW (75-59) Friday before traveling to Iowa City for Sunday’s contest. The win over Illinois is Wisconsin’s first conference win of the year (1-3).
The Badgers out-rebounded the Fighting Illini 41-29 and scored 17 points off 13 Illinois turnovers en route to victory. Wisconsin had five players score in double figures, led by Stephanie Rich. The Washington, IA, native posted game highs in points (18) and assists (7). She was 4-6 from 3-point range. Ashley Josephson tallied 12 points and five rebounds, while Jordan Wilson pulled down a team-high nine boards. Lello Gebisa posted a double-double (19 points, 10 rebounds) and Josephson tallied a team-high 20 points in Wisconsin’s triumph over IUFW Friday. The Badgers out shot IUFW 48.3 percent (27-56) to 36.7 percent (22-60) en route to victory.
Wisconsin has four players average in double figures in scoring. Josephson ranks first (11.7), followed by Rich (10.8), Emily Ashbaugh (10.5) and Gebisa (10.1). Gebisa ranks first on the squad in rebounding (7.1), while Ashbaugh ranks second (6.1). As a team, Wisconsin owns a +4.8 rebounding margin.
Lisa Stone is in her first year with Wisconsin (7-7, .500) and her 19th season overall (382-125, .753) as a head coach. She came to Wisconsin after three successful seasons at Drake. Stone took over the Bulldogs after Bluder left Drake for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Stone also coached 12 years at UW-Eau Claire and three seasons at Cornell College.
IOWA, WISCONSIN NOTES

ALL-TIME SERIES RECORDS
Sunday’s game will be the 46th meeting between the two schools. Iowa holds a 27-18 series advantage, including winning the last three contests. Iowa won both games last year by 17 point margins: 77-60 in Iowa City and 76-59 in Madison. Wisconsin’s last victory (68-61) over the Hawkeyes came on Dec. 30, 2001 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
DID YOU KNOW…
Coach Bluder and her coaching staff recruited Wisconsin Assistant Coach Stephanie Schmitz at Drake. Schmitz played for Bluder for two seasons before Bluder and her staff left for the Hawkeyes. Schmitz ranks third on Drake’s career assists chart (546).
Wisconsin and Iowa share one common non-conference opponent: Iowa State. The Hawkeyes lost to the Cyclones (101-94) in double overtime in Ames, while the Badgers defeated (76-73) Iowa State on their home floor.
HOME, AWAY COMPARISONS
In seven home games, Iowa has out-scored its opponent by a 521-499 margin, shooting 46.2 percent from the field and holding opponents to a 43.5 shooting percentage. Iowa has also posted 133 assists to its opponents’ 92.
In eight games away from Iowa City, the Hawkeyes have been out-scored its opponent by a 616-580 margin. Iowa has a better 3-point shooting percentage on the road (.418) than at home (.363). The Hawkeyes also average nearly four more rebounds on the road.
Jamie Cavey scored seven of her eight points in the decisive second half and hauled in a season-high six rebounds to propel Iowa to an important 76-59 conference triumph at Wisconsin.
Cavey’s contributions were key because the Hawkeyes’ “Big Two” – Jennie Lillis and Kristi Faulkner – lived up to billing, combining for 44 of Iowa’s 76 points. It took Cavey’s boost to bump the Hawkeyes over the top.
With 11:21 left in the contest, the Hawkeyes were mired in a 55-49 deficit. However, over the next 2:09, Iowa managed to knot the affair. Lillis started it with a free throw and Faulkner followed with a three-pointer to bring the Hawkeyes to within two. Taking a feed from Faulkner, Cavey converted a lay-up with 9:12 left to pull even, 55-55. A jumper a minute later by Cavey gave the Hawkeyes a two-point lead they would never lose.
The Badgers did manage to tie the game with a pair of free throws shortly after, but Johanna Solverson canned a jumper and Cavey followed with a three-point play to balloon the lead back to five points, 62-57, with 5:33 remaining. Wisconsin would not move any closer than five the rest of the way as Iowa finished off the game with a 27-4 run for the victory.
Although Cavey’s contributions were clutch down the stretch, the consistent play of Faulkner was just as critical. Faulkner’s 29 points matched a career-high as well as her five three-pointers made. The junior has eclipsed the 20 point barrier in nine games thus far this campaign, including the last three tilts. Lillis chipped in with 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting and four helpers.
Solverson added nine points in the winning effort in addition to matching career highs in rebounds (9), blocks (2) and assists (5).
Iowa ranks 53rd in the latest RPI rankings and 14th in strength of schedule. Iowa’s SOS ranking is the second-best in the Big Ten behind Penn State (3). Wisconsin ranks 129th in the RPI and 88th in strength of schedule. As a conference the Big Ten ranks first ahead of the Big XII and Pac-10. The rankings are released Mondays by the WBCA.
Nine of the 11 Big Ten schools have records above .500. Penn State ranks No. 2 in the RPI rankings, followed by Purdue (4), Minnesota (7) and Michigan State (26).
IOWA CRANKS UP THE OFFENSE
Iowa has posted 90 points or more in three games this year. The school record is six times, set during the 2001-02 season.
The Hawkeyes rank third in the Big Ten in scoring (73.4).
LILLIS AMONG ELITE GROUP
Senior Jennie Lillis is among an elite group of Hawkeyes. Lillis is one of only five Iowa players to have scored over 1,500 points and have collected 700 or more rebounds. The list includes Cindy Haugejorde, Toni Foster, Tangela Smith and Franthea Price.
Lillis is approaching two more milestones. The native of Urbandale, IA, can become only the third Hawkeye player to score 300 points or more in four seasons — if she scores 300 this season. Lillis scored 333 her freshman year, 429 her sophomore season and 537 last year. She has already amassed 232 points this season. Lills can also become the first-ever Hawkeye to rank in the top ten in the five major statistical categories at Iowa (scoring, rebounding, steals, assists and blocks). She already ranks in the top ten in scoring, rebounding and blocks. Lillis is five steals from cracking the top ten and 27 assists from making history.
Iowa ranks 30th in the nation in attendance (3,048). The Hawkeyes are the sixth-highest Big Ten team ranked. Purdue ranks fifth, followed by Penn State (6), Minnesota (8), Wisconsin (13) and Michigan State (20). Rankings are as of Jan. 12.
Iowa posted a season-high 17 steals vs. Drake on Dec. 21. The last time the Hawkeyes collected 17 thefts in a game was in an overtime win over IUPUI in last year’s season opener (11/23/02). Senior Jennie Lillis led Iowa with four steals against the Bulldogs. The native of Urbandale, IA, recorded six thefts in the Hawkeyes’ previous game vs. Kansas State. She is Iowa’s leader in steals and ranks 12th in the Big Ten (1.87).
The Hawkeyes collected 15 steals vs. Indiana. Iowa has posted 10 steals or more in six games.
ONE AND THE BONUS
Senior Jennie Lillis has converted 372-499 (.745) of her free throw attempts in her career. She has made 57-71 (.803) of her attempts this season. The native of Urbandale, IA, is the school record holder for free throw attempts (499) and is 19 free throws made from breaking the school record, which is held by Amy Herrig (390).
Lillis has attempted at least one free throw in 103-of-108 games she has played, including all ten games this year.
CAVEY IMPROVES AT THE CHARITY STRIPE
Jamie Cavey’s free throw shooting is just one aspect of her game that she has improved on this year. Cavey has converted 48-70 (.686) from the charity stripe this year. Last year, she made 38-72 (.528) of her attempts.
REEDY MAKING THE MOST OF STARTING ROLE
Sophomore Tiffany Reedy has started at forward the last eight games. The native of Dysart, IA, has averaged 5.3 ppg and 5.1 rpg while starting. Reedy pulled down a career-high 16 rebounds at Missouri on Dec. 30. The 16 rebounds in a game are the most by a Hawkeye since Jerica Watson collected 16 vs. Virginia in the first round of the 2002 NCAA Tournament in Storrs, CT. Reedy scored the Hawkeyes’ first eight points and 11 of their first 14 in the first 5:30 of the Creighton game. Reedy finished with a season-high 15 points (4-8 FG, 4-4 FT) and tied a career high with two steals in 28 minutes of action. Reedy’s 15 points mark the first time this season she has posted double figures and the fifth time in her career.
For the season, Reedy ranks sixth on the team in scoring (4.3) and fifth in rebounding (3.7).
SOLVERSON HAS PERFECT SHOOTING GAME
Sophomore Johanna Solverson came off the bench to score a season-high 16 points and also pulled down three rebounds at Penn State on Jan. 8. Solverson was a perfect 6-6 shooting from the field, including 3-3 from 3-point range. She was also 1-1 from the free throw line. That performance marked the first time in her career that she recorded a perfect shooting performance from the field.
Solverson has been coming off the bench ever since missing the Kansas State game with an injured left ankle.
Solverson ranks third on the Hawkeyes in rebounding (4.8). She pulled down a team-high nine rebounds at Iowa State and Marquette. The native of Lake Zurich, IL, has led the Hawkeyes five times in rebounding. She led Iowa in rebounding in two games all of last year. Solverson collected a then-career-high nine rebounds twice last year. Already this year, she has posted rebounding games of 13 (vs. Saint Joseph’s) and nine (at Iowa State and at Marquette).
Four Hawkeyes fouled out at Iowa State (Jennie Lillis, Jamie Cavey, Johanna Solverson and Kristi Faulkner). Jennie Lillis and Jamie Cavey have both fouled out four times this season. Lillis fouled out only once in 33 games her junior year and three times in 29 contests her sophomore season.
As a team, Hawkeye players have fouled out 12 times in Iowa’s first 15 games, topping its total all of last year (9).
SMITH HAVING BREAKOUT YEAR
Sophomore Crystal Smith has been Coach Bluder’s first guard off the bench this year, averaging 14.9 minutes per game. It can be argued that Smith is Iowa’s top defender, who ranks second on the team in steals (19) behind starter Jennie Lillis (24).
Smith had one of the best games of her career vs. Illinois and Minnesota. The native of Haughton, LA, matched her career high with 10 points, blocked her first career shot, collected a career-high four assists and grabbed four rebounds vs. the Illini. Smith collected seven points (2-2 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and a career-high five steals at Minnesota. Her five steals came while guarding one of the conference’s and nation’s top players — Lindsay Whalen.
Smith scored a career-high 10 points on 4-5 from the field, bolstered by a perfect 2-2 from three-point range at Florida International. She also collected four rebounds, three of which were offensive, and two steals.
Smith scored seven of her eight points in the first half against the Hoosiers and finished the game with six rebounds. Five of her six rebounds were offensive — a career high.
She has collected two or more steals seven times, including posting nine steals in Iowa’s last two contests.
Iowa converted 5-19 (.419) 3-pointers vs. Indiana. Iowa has drained five or more 3-pointers in its last eight games. The Hawkeyes have made at least one three-pointer in 163 consecutive contests. It is a streak that has occurred over a span of seven seasons. The last time the Hawkeyes did not make a three-pointer was against Purdue in the Big Ten Tournament on March 1, 1998.
THE NAME GAME
Iowa has two players with the first name Lindsay (Geoffroy and Richards). The Hawkeyes also have two Jennie’s on its team. Senior forward Jennie Lillis and athletic trainer Jennie Hartgrave.
CAVEY PACES HAWKEYES
Jamie Cavey has been a force in the post for Iowa. Cavey ranks first on the squad in scoring (16.4) and field goal percentage (.572) and second in rebounding (5.1). In addition, she ranks sixth in the Big Ten in scoring, fourth in field goal percentage and 23rd in rebounding. Cavey has led the Hawkeyes in scoring in 8-of-15 games. She has scored in double figures 12 straight games and 14-of-15 this season, including posting 20 points or more five times.
The native of Mechanicsville, IA, matched a career high with 26 points and four assists and posted career highs in free throws made (8) and attempted (11) in Iowa’s home win over Illinois. She tallied a game-high 20 points, grabbed six rebounds and posted career highs in steals (4) and minutes played (36) at Missouri.
Against Creighton, Cavey scored 17 points (6-13 FG, 5-5 FT) and posted career bests in blocks (5), rebounds (10) and tied a career high in assists (4).
Cavey has scored 246 points already this season and is the fastest player to reach 200 points in a single season since Lindsey Meder scored 225 points in Iowa’s first 12 games during the 2000-01 campaign.
FAULKNER: IOWA’S 3-POINT THREAT
Senior Kristi Faulkner ranks third on the squad in scoring (15.3), first in 3-pointers made (27), attempted (56) and percentage (.482) and fourth in rebounding (3.9). She has made at least one triple in 14-of-15 games this year. Her streak of 12 consecutive games with at least one triple ended at Penn State on Jan. 8. Faulkner has scored in double figures in 12-of-15 games, including posting 20 points or more four times.
The native of Glen Ellyn, IL, registered a game-high 26 points at Florida International, 22 points at Iowa State and 24 vs. Drake. She made a season-high four three-pointers against the Cyclones. Faulkner scored a season-high 27 points, including her 1,000th career point in an Iowa uniform in Iowa’s home win over Indiana on Jan. 15.
Faulkner has made 108 career 3-pointers and has posted 1,002 career points at Iowa, which ranks 20th. Faulkner is 25 points from moving past Tiffany Gooden (1994-98) and into 19th on Iowa’s career scoring chart.
Faulkner was a third team all-Big Ten honoree last year.
LILLIS CONTINUES TO CLIMB CAREER CHARTS
Senior Jennie Lillis is a leader on and off the court. The native of Urbandale, IA, has started all but one game in her career and currently has 1,531 career points, which ranks seventh on Iowa’s career scoring chart. She also has collected 737 rebounds, which ranks seventh-best all-time. Lillis is on pace to finish her career in the top-five in career rebounding and scoring. Lillis, who also spends some of her free time at the University of Iowa Hospital & Clinics, was a preseason all-Big Ten selection the last two years.
Lillis drained a career-high three 3-pointers vs. Kansas State and a clutch triple down the stretch vs. Creighton. She has made a season-high nine 3-pointers, besting last year’s total (5). Lillis has made 15 career 3-pointers. She has made at least one three-pointer in four of Iowa’s last eight games and has attempted at least one triple in 7-of-8 contests.
The three-time captain is the only Hawkeye to score in double figures in every game this year. She posted her first double-double of the season and 16th of her career vs. Saint Joseph’s (19 points, 10 rebounds).
Lillis is 68 points from moving into sixth in career scoring and nine rebounds from sliding into the No. 6 position in career rebounds.
FAULKNER ON PACE TO BREAK SCHOOL RECORD
Senior Kristi Faulkner has converted .838 (223-266) of her free throw attempts during her three years with the Hawkeyes. She is on pace to break Lindsey Meder’s school record of .799 (287-359) set 1998-2002.
IOWA PLAYS IN FRONT OF LARGE CROWDS
Iowa has played two games in front of crowds over 10,000. The Hawkeyes’ game at Iowa State attracted 10,164 fans, while 13,817 fans attended Iowa’s game at Minnesota on Jan. 11. The Iowa/Minnesota game ranks 10th, while the Iowa/Iowa State contest ranks 33rd in single game attendance this season.
CENTER OF ATTENTION
For the fourth consecutive season, Iowa started its season with a new starting center. Junior Jamie Cavey has solidified herself as Iowa’s starting center in preseason practice.
Since Coach Bluder began coaching the Hawkeyes in 2000 Iowa has had a different center start the season. Randi Peterson was Iowa’s starter in 2000-01, followed by Beatrice Bullock (2001-02) and Tracy Schrupp (2002-03). Peterson, Bullock and Schrupp were all seniors. Cavey is the first junior starting center Coach Bluder has coached at Iowa.
REMMERDE DECIDES TO TRANSFER
Iowa Head Coach Lisa Bluder announced Monday that freshman shooting guard Deb Remmerde has decided to transfer to Northwestern College (Orange City, IA). Bluder has granted Remmerde her release.
“My decision to leave the University of Iowa was an extremely difficult decision,” said Remmerde. I have nothing but positive things to say about the players and coaching staff. Both went out of their way to make me feel welcome. The reason I’ve decided to transfer is that I want to be closer to home. I wish Iowa and the Hawkeye basketball family nothing but the best.”
“We regret Deb’s decision to leave the University of Iowa, but we also understand and have witnessed how homesick she is,” commented Bluder. Her unfortunate injury only added to Deb’s desire to return to her home community. We know that Deb has a bright future ahead of her and she will excel at Northwestern College.”
Remmerde suffered a stress fracture in her left foot in preseason practice and has still not recovered 100 percent from her injury. The native of Rock Valley, played limited minutes in two games this year (Kansas State and Drake). Remmerde is the Iowa high school all-time scoring leader and was named Miss Basketball her senior year.
HAWKEYES EARN TOURNAMENT HONORS
Kristi Faulkner was named the 2003 FIU Thanksgiving Classic Most Valuable Player. The senior averaged 20.5 ppg, 6.0 rpg and 2.5 apg in the two games. Senior Jennie Lillis, who averaged 17.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg and 2.5 apg was named to the all-tournament team.
The honor was Faulkner’s first of her career in a holiday tournament, while Lillis was named to a holiday tournament all-tournament team for the sixth time in her career.

Junior Jamie Cavey and senior Jennie Lillis were named to the KCRG-TV9 Hawkeye Challenge All-Tournament Team. It marked the third time Lillis earned the accolade, including being named the MVP last year. Cavey’s honor marked the first time that she was named to the Hawkeye Challenge all-Tournament squad in her three years with the Black and Gold.
HAWKEYES WIN FIU THANKSGIVING CLASSIC
Iowa defeated Saint Joseph’s (62-58) in a thriller in the first round of the FIU Thanksgiving Classic played in Miami, FL.

IOWA CAPTURES SECOND IN HAWKEYE CHALLENGE
For the first time in seven years, Iowa did not win its annual tournament. The Hawkeyes won their first round contest over Butler (83-60), but lost to Houston (70-64) in the championship game last weekend. The Cougars snapped Iowa’s 11-game tournament winning streak.
Iowa had four starters score in double figures to lead the Hawkeyes to a 23-point season-opening win. The victory improved Iowa’s record to 4-0 in season openers under Coach Bluder.
A superior effort by tournament MVP Chandi Jones lifted Houston past the Hawkeyes in the championship game. The nation’s leading scorer last year, scored 25 of her game-high 34 points in the second half to propel the Cougars to victory.
Cavey led Iowa with 18 points and six rebounds. Lillis scored all of her 14 points in the second half, while senior Kristi Faulkner added 16 points and five rebounds.
