The Iowa Hawkeye women’s basketball team finished the non-conference schedule with a 88-62 win over North Dakota at Carver-Hawkeye Arena Saturday.
“I thought we had a slow start, but once we got into the flow of this thing our fast break really got us back into this game,” said head coach Lisa Bluder. “Three-point shooting at the end of the half really helped.”
That’s the fun part of watching this team… when they get on a roll.
It all starts with Samantha Logic, who had 21 points and eight assists.
