Logic Named McDonald's All-American

Feb. 10, 2011

PARDON OUR PROGRESS! As friends of the University of Iowa and fans of the Hawkeyes know, the UI Athletics Department is well into a multi-million dollar revitalization of Carver-Hawkeye Arena. This important and exciting project has reduced for this season the number of ticket windows that are operational on game nights. Fans attending the home events of the 2010-11 UI men’s basketball, women’s basketball and wrestling teams are invited to avoid game night delays by purchasing their event tickets online or in advance of game day. If your schedule doesn’t allow for an advance purchase, we recommend you consider arriving at the Arena a little earlier than originally planned. Go Hawks!

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa women’s basketball 2011 recruit Samantha Logic has been named a 2010-11 McDonald’s High School All-American. Logic is one of 24 high school seniors from across the country selected to participate in the 10th annual McDonald’s All-American Game, which will be held March 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the United Center in Chicago. The game will be televised live on ESPNU.

Head Coach Lisa Bluder and her staff have now recruited three McDonald’s All-Americans to Iowa. Lindsay Richards and Johanna Solverson were both named McDonald’s All-Americans in 2002.

Logic, who will play for the East team in the McDonald’s All-American Game, is currently averaging 13.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 3.3 steals for Racine Case High School in Racine, Wisc.

She is a four-time all-state pick, including first team selections by the WBCA and Associated Press as a junior. Logic is a three-time all-county honoree and was named all-county Player of the year as a sophomore and junior. She has been named all-conference three times, with first team honors coming as a sophomore and junior along with conference Player of the Year accolades as a junior.

Glenn Nelson of ESPNHoopGurlz.com says Logic “brings toughness, physicality and of course skills to the guard spot not seen in a while.”

Logic helped her team to a regional final berth as a freshman, a sectional semifinal appearance as a sophomore and a co-Southeastern Conference title and a quarterfinal appearance at the state tournament as a junior.

Logic averaged 10.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.8 steals per game as a freshman, 15.1 points, seven rebounds, 6.4 assists and 3.9 steals as a sophomore and 16.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 4.4 steals as a junior.
