IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa’s senior Kathleen Doyle was named to the Big Ten Player of the Week Honor Roll, the conference announced Monday.
Doyle’s honor tallies nine for the Hawkeyes this season. Warnock earned the first Big Ten honor of her career, and Doyle now has accumulated five, including two Big Ten Player of the Week and three Player of the Week Honor Roll awards. McKenna Warnock earned Freshman of the Week (Jan. 27), and senior Makenzie Meyer and sophomore Monika Czinano have also been named to the Big Ten Honor Roll this season.
Doyle broke the Hawkeyes’ single-game assist record against Nebraska (Feb. 6), assisting 15 of Iowa’s 28 made baskets in the 76-60 win over the Cornhuskers and marking her the first Big Ten women’s basketball player to record 15 assists in a single game against a Big Ten opponent since Tori Jankoska (Michigan State) did against Minnesota (Feb. 21, 2016). Her 15 points and 15 assists marked her third double-double of the season and seventh of her career.
On Sunday in Iowa’s, 83-71, win at Purdue, Doyle and Meyer led the Hawkeyes with 22 points apiece, marking her 11th 20-point game of the season.
Doyle and the Hawkeyes hit the road for a Big Ten matchup at Maryland in College Park, Maryland, on Thursday. Tip-off is set for 5 p.m. (CT), and the game will air live on BTN.
