IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa freshman Caitlin Clark was named Big Ten Women’s Basketball Freshman of the Week, the conference announced Monday.
Clark has tallied 14 Big Ten Weekly honors on the year, including nine freshman honors, three Big Ten Player of the Week honors, and two Player of the Week Honor Roll nods.
Clark recorded consecutive 30-point games against No. 11/13 Ohio State and No. 17 Indiana last week. In the Hawkeyes matchup against the Buckeyes, Clark was one assist shy of a double-double. She averaged five assists and four rebounds in the two games.
The West Des Moines, Iowa, native now tied with former Hawkeye Megan Skouby on Iowa’s all-time freshman scoring list with 414 points on the season and sits in fourth on the Iowa all-time freshman assist list with 103.
Clark and the Hawkeyes head to Lincoln, Nebraska this week to take on the Cornhuskers inside Pinnacle Bank Arena. Date, tip time, and TV designation have yet to be set.
