Clark Earns 3rd USBWA Freshman of the Week Honor

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa freshman Caitlin Clark earned her third U.S. Basketball Writers Association Freshman of the Week honor, the USBWA announced Monday.

Clark earns her second consecutive honor. She previously received the award on Jan. 5 and Feb. 16.

Last week against Penn State, Clark posted 32 points, seven assists, six rebounds, a steal, and a block to fill her stat line.

The West Des Moines, Iowa, native has recorded five consecutive and nine total 30-point games — her eighth of the season in Iowa’s, 96-78, win over Penn State. Her nine 30-point games is believed to be the most by a freshman since 2000.

Clark now owns Iowa’s all-time freshman scoring record with 519 points. She is second on the 3-pointers made list with 72, and third on the assists list with 126 on the season. She passed former Hawkeye Jaime Printy to break the scoring record (501) and sits behind Printy’s 3-point record (82). The assist record holder is Kathleen Doyle (2016-17) with 148. Clark is the only Iowa freshman to record 500-plus points, 100-plus rebounds, and 100-plus assists in a season.

Clark and the Hawkeyes host No. 12/11 Michigan on Thursday, Feb. 25 inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa. Tipoff is set for 3:30 p.m. (CT) on Big Ten Network.
