Head Coach Lisa Bluder
“Getting our 20th win feels good. We’re just excited to get back home and get ready for the Big Ten Tournament. We played a much improved Northwestern team. I think Northwestern is the most improved team in the Big Ten this season.”

“We did a great job valuing the basketball today. The last two games we have done an excellent job limiting our turnovers. We also took advantage of our offensive rebounds today, scoring 21 second-chance points.”

On the three seniors breaking the record
“That just shows the quality of our three players in what they have done not just this season but overt their entire careers. We’re going to miss them after this year!”

Senior Megan Skouby
On setting the record
“It’s a great accolade four us to achieve. All three of us have contributed to our team’s success. It’s a great accomplishment for us and great for Iowa basketball. It’s been awesome playing with Wendy and Kristi.”

Senior Kristi Smith
On placing second
“It’s an awesome feeling! We went out and proved everyone wrong tying for second (Iowa was picked to finish fourth by the coaches and fifth by the media). We’re playing as a team out here and having fun.”
