IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa Athletic Department will retire Megan Gustafson’s No. 10 when the Iowa women’s basketball team takes on Michigan State on Jan. 26 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
Henry B. and Patricia B. Tippie Director of Athletics Chair Gary Barta previously announced that Gustafson’s number would be retired on April 24.
Gustafson ended her career as the most decorated Hawkeye in program history. She owns 16 Iowa records, including career marks for points (2,804) and rebounds (1,460).
The Port Wing, Wisconsin, native was the first Big Ten student-athlete to be named the consensus national player of the year (Associated Press, ESPN, Naismith, USBWA). Gustafson netted 1,001 points during the 2018-19 season, becoming just the fourth Division I female student-athlete and the only post player to eclipse 1,000 points in a single season.
Gustafson is the second Iowa women’s basketball student-athlete to have her number retired. Iowa retired Michelle Edwards’ No. 30 in 1988.
Tickets can be purchased online at hawkeyesports.com/tickets, over the phone at 1-800-IA-HAWKS, or at the Iowa Ticket Office inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Fans attending the event will receive a commemorative Gustafson poster while supplies last.
