Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year Caitlin Clark leads the Hawkeyes with 25.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game. Clark averages 19 field goal attempts per game for the Hawkeyes and is shooting 89.9 percent (89-99) from the free throw line (7.6 FTA pg). This season, she has hit just 22.6 percent (26-115) of her three-point attempts and is just 4-for-30 (.133) in conference play. Last season as the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Clark hit 40.6 percent (116-286) of her three-point tries.

In four Big Ten games, Iowa’s big three of Clark (27.3 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 9.5 apg), Czinano (21.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg) and Warnock (16.0 ppg, 8.8 rpg) have been dominant. Kate Martin (7.3 ppg) and Gabbie Marshall (7.0 ppg) round out the Iowa starters in Big Ten play, while Kylie Feuerbach (2.0 ppg), Tomi Taiwo (1.0 ppg) and Addison O’Grady (1.0 ppg) are the only other Hawkeyes to play in all four games.

Iowa leads the all-time series with Nebraska 18-15, including a sweep of the season series in 2020-21 and a 95-86 win over the Huskers at Pinnacle Bank Arena last Sunday.
