IOWA CITY, Iowa – Senior guard Caitlin Clark was named the Associated Press and the United States Basketball Writers Association National Player of the Week on Tuesday. Clark was also named the Big Ten Player of the Week for the 19th time in her career on Monday.
Clark led Iowa to three wins in seven days over, FDU, No. 8 Virginia Tech, and Northern Iowa. Last week, she averaged 32.0 ppg, 9.0 apg, 8.3 rpg, and had only four turnovers.
In Sunday’s action, Clark broke Iowa’s all-time scoring record that was previously held by Megan Gustafson. The feat took 103 career games. She recorded her 12th career triple-double and first of the season against Northern Iowa. She joined Sabrina Ionescu as the only women’s basketball players to ever record a triple-double in four different seasons.
A few days earlier on a neutral court in Charlotte, N.C., as Iowa beat then No. 8 Virginia Tech, Clark collected 44 points, six assists and eight rebounds, the fifth time in her career she has had at least 40 points, five rebounds and five assists.
The second-ranked Hawkeyes are set to host Kansas State on Thursday. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. (CT) in Iowa City. The game will broadcast on FS1 and on the Hawkeye Radio Network.
