IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Big Ten Conference announced the University of Iowa women’s basketball 2021-22 schedule on Wednesday. The Conference and Big Ten Network will release times and TV designations at a later date.
The Hawkeyes host 15 home games and one exhibition contest in Carver-Hawkeye Arena this season, including nine contests against Big Ten teams. Iowa was one of seven Big Ten programs to make the NCAA Tournament last season, including Sweet 16 appearances from the Hawkeyes, Indiana, Maryland, and Michigan. Central Florida and in-state foe, Iowa State, also made NCAA appearances.
Iowa finished the 2020-21 season 20-10, overall, and advanced to the Sweet 16 at the NCAA Tournament. The Hawkeyes tallied an 11-8 Big Ten record. They return nine letterwinners, including all five starters — Caitlin Clark, Monika Czinano, Gabbie Marshall, Kate Martin, and McKenna Warnock.
Clark was named National Co-Freshman of the Year, consensus All-American, Dawn Staley Award winner, Big Ten Freshman of the Year, unanimous First Team All-Big Ten. She won her third gold medal with USA Basketball at the 2021 FIBA U119 World Cup and was named the tournament MVP. Czinano also earned first team All-Big Ten honors. The pair led the nation in seven statistical categories, including Czinano ranking first in field-goal percentage (66.8) and Clark leading in points per game (26.6) and total assists (214).
